Microsoft is teaming up with Japanese studio Kojima Productions to create an original exclusive.
Very often affiliated with Sony and the PlayStation brand, game designer Hideo Kojima will also work for the competition: “There’s a game I’ve always wanted to make. It’s a completely new game, which no one has ever seen or experienced before. I waited a very long time for the day when I could finally start creating it. Thanks to Microsoft’s cutting-edge technology in cloud computing and the changing trend in the industry, it is now possible to challenge myself to realize this unique concept. It may take a while, but I look forward to teaming up with Xbox Game Studios and hope to bring you some exciting news about it in the future!”
Xbox Game Studios & Kojima Productions are partnering to create a video game for Xbox like no one has ever experienced before, leveraging the cloud.

The new license Kojima Productions for the US publisher’s Xbox consoles Microsoft, and presumably the PC, has no title or release date yet. Development is still in its infancy, but it should be a relatively short gaming experience.
