Tom Henderson: Hideo Kojima’s New Horror Game is Dubbed “Overdose”

If it is the cult symbol than it’s definitely Silent Hill.

Which would make it play like the franchise Lognor Lognor and not be a walking sim.
Was it this Tom guy who tweeted the image of Overdose? I can't find it on his Twitter.
Edit: It was someone else:

But that's the symbol.

I saw that too. So if that's true wouldn't that line up with being the Xbox cloud project?

Who knows with Kojima...! I mean was it explicitly stated that the partnership with Xbox was exclusive for this game? Maybe it will be multiplatform? I can't see it being that PT was the tease for Silent Hills exclusive on PS4 but now it is a exclusive cloud game on Xbox. Then again it has also been rumoured that there are two Silent Hill games in the works....

*big shrugs* I'm sure Kojima gets off watching us trying to make sense of his confusing teases!:messenger_beaming:

Crazy Theory time: MS can't get the Silent Hill name but they are trying to. That's why they announced an announcement with literally nothing, not even a bloody title that people can search and type for hype.

One theory I have is someone got the Silent Hill license and then offered it to Kojima. Sort of what Sony did with Spider-Man and Insomniac. It would definitely make the gamematsu rumor make more sense.

1 day ago so many people were adamant there's no way Kojima would work with Xbox on anything.

What we don't know today could completely change tomorrow.

Well I’m me day ago Overdose was said to be an Xbox title and to appear at the show. I’m guessing your wondering if it’s a fake or not.

I'm wondering that Overdose is probably the other bigger game Kojima is working on which may or may not be PS exclusive or multi platform.

And I'm more and more wondering that when Reedus said they began work 'the second one" he probably meant the next project with Kojima as rumors say Overdose will have multiple returning cast members from Death Stranding.

Koji Pro is nowhere close to a 3 game studio right now.

Where did you get that? I never said that.

Read my posts.

No idea what his cloud game is if not overdose.

Then why wasn’t it shown if there was a reveal trailer already prepared? That’s the WTF part that I’m making a reference to.

Well he didn’t fall asleep after DS. He definitely was working on something and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t this cloud title or DS2 according to what’s being said. Then there’s gamematsu and Dusk Golem talking about a horror title which Overdose resembles.

Because MS decided to only show games coming out in the next 12 months.

So what’s the point in preparing a trailer for the event and not showing it? It’s not like they are going to hold onto it for a couple of years and then release it. They would definitely like to show something from the latest build.

I'm pretty certain at no point was the word exclusive used, which I'd strongly expect to happen if that was the case.

My view from the start was and is to ask what does Kojima want and why? My best guess is that he's interested in (1) having a centralized server-based system that can be reactive to user behaviours, and/or (2) Be able to reach the broadest audience possible without having to develop and coordinate across multiple platforms.

Exclusivity to *any* platform doesn't seem to fit that sort of intent.

Unless of course the key thing is portability, as in something that is intended to be playable from a phone or tablet as easily as from a PC or console. Which seems to me the only reason that he'd have approached Stadia.

My suspicion is that the draw for Kojima is some sort of web-based or portal application that can be deployed anywhere. And if that's the case then maybe this game isn't at all like what people might expect from mr Metal Gear, and why he's being so cagey about what the project is.

Maybe if its an expansion of the ARG-like reaction to P.T. ? Where he briefly had the entire internet trying to figure out its secrets.

Just my 10c.

What trailer?

The one Tom saw.

Edit: I don’t understand what’s so funny. It’s what this thread is about.

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".

Kojima himself said this project is gonna take a while for it to come out so I kinda doubt it's Overdose but who knows.
I think someone mentioned it was also being played on a phone? That seems like streaming/cloud to me.

That’s what I just said. They decided to only show things coming out in the next year.

Kojima has had a lot of banter with Rahul Kohli, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Rahul stars in Overdose/Silent Hill, if not being the lead himself.

So how we understand this? Overdose Is the game for MS or is a game for PS? Maybe I am wrong but remember that Kojima have a contract for Sony by three games.

I don’t see how you can say overdose is clearly not MS. There is not enough info either way.

i think he is doing DS2 next, then this cloud game.
If Overdoes is a MS game then why wasn't it shown at the Xbox conference? Trailer is done and ready to go seemingly, why wheel out Kojima and embarrassingly show fuck all when you have that game trailer up your sleeve? Makes no sense other than Overdose is not the game Phil and Kojima where talking about.
 
Overdose isn't the xbox game. It just got leaked and mixed up with the Microsoft partnership announcement. It's probably his next game that he's been working on for the last few years. What it is and who the publisher is, we don't know but its going to be revealed soon I think.

as other have said, Overdose could be a Sony exclusive, or could be a game a personal project for Kojima that is multiplatform.

If you read my earlier posts I have already said why multiple times. And this is just my opinion.
 

EverydayBeast

thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
Kohima with the exception of metal gear solid, silent hill and now death stranding is unknown and has to get a trailer out.
 
Tom Henderson and TheSnitch: Horror game dubbed "Overdose" on a platform TBD.
Norman Reedus: Death Stranding 2 on PlayStation.
Hideo Kojima: Cloud-base game on XBox (in early stages).

Crazy how we have no clue what he's actively working on. Rumors aplenty and not much else.

Death Stranding 2 is also in early states. If I was to guess Overdose is probably the furthest along out of the three.

"Because MS only decided to show games coming out in the next 12 months". So why haul Kojima into the showcase in the 1st place? He was literally an outlier to the entire in the show so it already breaks that supposed "law". Just like he said it's going to be a while for his cloud game to come out he could have easily shown Overdose if it was said game and said "unlike other games in the show this isn't coming out in the next 12 months, you're going to have to wait a little longer for this but it'll be worth the wait blah blah blah..."

If you have a trailer ready to go you show it at your big showcase event, ESPCIALLY when you already literally drag the man that's making that game to your show to say he's making the game. It's beyond common sense.

I wouldn't believe Death Stranding 2. Norman Reedus said "The second part". Overdose has been confirmed so far to be using one existing actor from Death Stranding. "The second part" could just be the next project with the same group of people.

Here’s why.

Edit: I’m a little lost here I’m reading that Microsoft has another show. Anyone know if Overdose is rumored to be at that one?

I’m sorry but I am just no as invested in this as you are. I don’t know if overdose is an Xbox game or not. Anything said now is just speculation.

And even at that press conference they actual showed footage of Saddam being captured


Once again if you have footage of something you show it at whatever big event your holding to announce said something.

What a retarded reply. You are aware that YOU initially, unsolicited, uninvited, unprovoked etc.. replied to a general post I made? I didn't initiate this conversation, you did. So you clearly are invested. You know what someone that isn't invested in a topic does? He doesn't reply/engage in it.

My tears. Exclusive to gamepass. Forever.
Ffs either make DS2 moon edition or get back working on the MGS series. We already got a flood of horror games as is
