Kojima Productions still has a “very good” relationship with PlayStation
Kojima Productions has reassured gamers concerned about its continued relationship with PlayStation following its recently announced deal with Microsoft.
During yesterday’s (June 12) Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, Hideo Kojima himself appeared to announce that Kojima Productions would be working with Xbox Game Studios on the developer’s next unannounced game.
This partnership will “leverage the power of the cloud”, but not much else is known about that at this time.
As Kojima Productions also has an ongoing relationship with PlayStation, the studio took to Twitter to let fans know that both of its collaborations are still on track, with one not obliterating the other.
After announcing our partnership with Microsoft using cloud technology, many people asked us about our collaboration with SIE. Rest assured that we also continue to have a great partnership with PlayStation®.#KojimaProductions https://t.co/mVOELwDuk9

“After announcing our partnership with Microsoft using cloud technology, many people asked us about our collaboration with Sony Interactive Entertainment,” Kojima Productions wrote. “Rest assured that we also continue to have a very good partnership with PlayStation.”
It also follows Death Stranding actor Norman Reedus confirming that he is working on a sequel to this game, with the franchise being the aforementioned collaboration between Sony and Kojima Productions.
What Kojima’s new project is, and how it will leverage the power of the cloud, will be announced in the future. It’s also unclear whether this cloud game or the supposed Death Stranding the sequel will come out first.
