Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase last June 12 was chock-full of tasty information regarding new games and updates gamers can experience in the coming months. The list is long, making the rest of the year exciting for everyone thirsty for new titles and experiences. One of them will be the product of a new partnership between Xbox Game Studios and Kojima Productions.
“Today, we also announced a partnership between Xbox Game Studios and Kojima Productions to create a video game for Xbox like no one has ever experienced or seen before leveraging the power of the cloud,” teases Xbox. “Hideo Kojima is one of the most innovative and creative minds in our industry we can’t wait to share what our teams will create together.”
There are still no clear details of what the new game will be about, but this work being concocted with someone considered an auteur of video games, Hideo Kojima, tells us it will be something big. According to the founder, this “completely new game” will use Microsoft’s Azure cloud.
“With Microsoft’s cutting edge cloud technology and the change in the industry’s trend, it has now become possible to challenge myself to make this never-before-seen-concept,” Kojima noted. “It may take some time, but I’m looking forward to teaming up with Xbox Game Studios and hope to bring you some exciting news in the future.”
