Hideo Kojima, the famous creator of Metal Gear and Death Stranding, has revealed the first details of his Xbox exclusive, OD, at The Game Awards 2023. The project, which involves Jordan Peele, the famous director of Get Out and Nope, was described by Kojima as a unique gaming experience unlike anything players have seen before, according to Kotaku.
The debut teaser for OD, shown at The Game Awards, doesn’t reveal any details, showing only the actors’ faces in close-up. After the success of Death Stranding, we could expect a star-studded cast in Kojima’s new project. And indeed, OD developers have already managed to attract Sophia Lillis from Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Hunter Shaffer from Euphoria, and Udo Kier from Flesh for Frankenstein. The game is being developed using the Unreal Engine.
During the event, Kojima invited Peele on stage to discuss their collaboration. Peele expressed his enthusiasm, describing the project as “totally exciting, totally terrifying” and how he was honored to work with Kojima, whom he called GOAT (Greatest of All Time). Kojima’s statements also mention that the game, created in collaboration with Xbox Game Studios, aims to test players’ fear thresholds and blur the lines between game and movie.
Kojima remained tight-lipped about further details, but also confirmed that his studio is still working on the PlayStation 5 exclusive Death Stranding 2. No release date for OD was announced, which indicates that it may still be years away.
