The creative mind behind the likes of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding is working on a new title currently named “Overdose”.

Early footage, that has been sent to me under the request of anonymity seems to show Mama from Death Stranding wearing a blue dress. The game, however, does not appear to be Death Stranding 2 and just features the actress who portrayed Mama, Margaret Qualley.

Footage shows the character walking through dark corridors with a flashlight in third-person, but it’s been suggested that the game can be played in first-person too. A jump scare at the end of the footage shows “GAMEOVER” followed by “A Hideo Kojima Game”… “OVERDOSE”.

It’s been rumored by reputable insider Jeff Grubb that Kojima has been in talks with Xbox for the company to publish their next game. Although I wasn’t able to verify that this deal has been finalized, it does seem that something is likely to be announced soon. After all, a picture did surface last week of Hideo Kojima in a zoom call with the creator of the Summer Games Fest, Geoff Keighley, last week.

Whatever the game turns out to be, it does appear to be the horror game that has previously been rumored. So, fingers crossed that we get a glimpse of the game this week at either Summer Games Fest or the Xbox and Bethesda showcase.

Update – Kojima Productions have since asked for the publication of this report to be removed which we have declined.

        sorry gotta go out of character for this.
        OVERDOSE isn’t the name of the game.

    Oh man this can finally shut Silent Hills theorists up. It’s been 8 years move on! Anticipating the official announcement and would love to play this Slitterhead and RE4 remake back to back.

      It’s not. They’ve already announced recently they’re working on that.

        There as been no announcements. Norman Reedus last month said he was working on Death Stranding 2 in an interview, and year before that he daid he was in talks to return for Death Stranding 2.
