Hideo Kojima Wagering Career On His Next Project?


Posted April 15, 2010 - By Jake Gaskill

Hideo KojimaLegendary developer Hideo Kojima has created some of the most acclaimed games of all time, but if things don’t go well, his next project could be his last.

Japanese gaming watchdog AndriaSang (via Gamasutra) noticed yesterday that Kojima had posted several teases on Twitter about his next project. The first rather striking message read:

“The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo. If I mess up, I'll probably have to leave the industry. However, I don't want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. It's been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it's just one person. For a start, it's good."

Beyond apocalyptic proclamations about his gaming future, Kojima has been understandably vague about the game. "I still do not have the details embedded, but everything is running simultaneously in my head. The title, game design, story, characters, setting, mechs, casting, direction of the graphics, sound, beginning and ending, and key story sequences. It all molds together naturally in my head," Kojima explained.

“Taboo” and “mechs”? Since I’m pretty sure the world isn't quite ready for a robotic Rapelay game, I’m going to go ahead and say I have no idea what Kojima has rattling around in his head with regards to his next game. But I will go out on a limb and say we should be seeing a teaser site/countdown clock any minute now.
