There were no words shared in Kojima’s latest Twitter post; just a picture showing a bunch of screens held in portrait and landscape orientations, Kojima’s personal directorial chair, a laptop with a mouse attached, and a massive surround-sound system. And off on the right-hand side, you can just barely make out the presence of a PS5 development kit at another workstation.
As noted by VGC, this probably isn’t just a holdover from the studio’s Death Stranding production. The dev kit is hooked up, so presumably, someone is working with it. On something. Just what that is, we don’t really know, but we do know that Kojima Productions has at least two games in production at the moment.
One of those games happens to be for Xbox using Microsoft’s cloud gaming technology. If we had to guess, that’s probably the “challenging” game that Kojima mentioned in an end-of-year interview with Famitsu. The “big” game could be anything, but even if it’s a multi-platform triple-A title, a PS5 development kit would likely be a handy thing to have in order to test builds on.
Although Kojima Productions is operating with a PS5 dev package, that also doesn’t imply the studio is about to be obtained by way of Sony. That was the rumor that commenced spreading in advance this month after Death Stranding seemed in a PlayStation banner that regarded to imply Kojima become a PlayStation studio. Kojima himself set the file straight on Twitter, writing, “I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, however KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS has been and will stay an unbiased studio.”
