This is just a rumor for now, but it does make sense. With Kojima Productions launching Death Stranding for PS4, it seems likely that he would try to do the same for Xbox as he has a lot of ideas cooking in his unique brain. Oftentimes, his new universes in games are far more interesting than the games that follow up and try to expand on the initial launching pad. Grubb then goes on to say that he cannot confirm if the deal has closed yet, but his understanding is that Kojima is the focus of Microsoft’s plan to leverage Japanese talent. Japan is a market Xbox has always struggled in.
Kojima’s next game is reportedly set to be revealed soon and there are reports of a Death Stranding: Extended Edition set to be released in the future.
