For the dawn of the new year, Hideo Kojima, The Mind-blowing and brilliant creator of Death Stranding and Metal gear Solid: Phantom Pain revealed his plans to start work on an experimental and interesting project in 2022 in a Twitter tweet he published. For the past few months and a half, speculation has been rife on what the Death Stranding creator plans to do next. A horror game may be in the works, as the guy has hinted in the past, but nothing has been verified as of right now.
There are several clues from Hideo Kojima indicating that the company’s forthcoming game would have innovative concepts, some of which are based on theories about player-specific data.
In a September 2021 discussion with the Japanese journal Anan, for example, the famed designer revealed that he would like to build an experience that may change depending on a user’s specified location and ideas about the game.
New Year’s letter from game director Kojima suggests that the notion of the real-time effects might be explored further when he returns to gaming in future projects.
This year, I'm going to start a new work in earnest, and move to the next level of experimentation with a radical project. I'm also hoping to get the video team going. And I may start doing something like a radio project? pic.twitter.com/j0norcJ23a

Hideo Kojima said in a tweet to ring in the new year that he will begin work on a new project in earnest in 2022. Even though there aren’t any specifics given in the message, supporters can anticipate him to “advance towards the next degree of experimentation with a daring project.”
The tweet also mentions that Kojima is preparing his video crew and plans to launch his radio show. According to the way Kojima Productions has set up a TV and Music Section, the media team may be focusing on the former, while the music division may be linked to the latter. The video team of Kojima could also be engaged with undisclosed game elements, although this is just conjecture at the moment.
The complete text of the post is as follows:
This year, I’m going to start a new work in earnest and move to the next level of experimentation with a radical project. I’m also hoping to get the video team going. And I may start doing something like a radio project?
Considering his alleged plans for Konami’s scrapped Silent Hills game and his usage of the term “radical” appears to have wide-ranging implications. An ex-developer on the canceled project claims that for the haunting of Silent Hills to persist beyond the bounds of the virtual world, players would have been required to sign an agreement allowing access to their emails and mobile devices.
His recent reference to real-time alterations, paired with this thought, suggests that Kojima’s desire to merge the two worlds has not waned.
Although 2021 was still a very difficult year for us, we managed to deliver the release of DSDC for PS5 safely even in this COVID situation while we were solemnly preparing and experimenting with new titles.
