Hideo Kojima has finally responded to rumors of his involvement with Abandoned, an indie horror game developed by Blue Box Game Studios. Since Abandoned was introduced to the public, many people have speculated that Kojima was secretly involved in the project. Meanwhile, Blue Box Game Studios itself is just a cover to disguise him from the project.
Abandoned Game Rumors
In developing a game, announce that the developer will always provide updates about the development of the game. But not for the Abandoned game from Blue Box Game Studio. After the release of the first teaser for Abandoned in 2021, the game suddenly disappeared without any news until now. Not even a few think that this game is just a trick to attract investors.
When I first saw teaser Abandoned, gamers on the internet began to be suspicious of the project. Gamers began to notice the similarities in aspects of this game to PT, a short horror game by Kojima Productions that was intended as a teaser for Silent Hills which was later canceled.
This suspicion was strengthened by the scarcity of information provided by Blue Box Game Studios to the public. This has led to a theory that Blue Box Games Studio is a fake company similar to Moby Dick Studio, the studio created by Kojima in 2012 to promote the game Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain.
Hideo Kojima’s Response and Blue Box Game Studio’s Clarification
Disturbed by the rumors that point to him, Hideo Kojima through his Podcast Brain Structure directly denied rumors of his involvement with Abandoned. Kojima did admit that he cheated through Moby Dick Studio and Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain. But he said that he would not use the same method twice.
Hideo Kojima insists that he has never spoken to Hasan Kahraman, the director behind Abandoned. In his podcast, Kojima gave some suggestions to Blue Box Game Studio to take advantage of this hype. He also said that if the Abandoned game was officially released, then players would know that the game was much different from Silent Hill.
We want to thank @Kojima_Hideo for addressing the conspiracies open. It has been a burden and not cool for both fans and developers. We hope everyone can close this for good. We are working hard on Abandoned and we would like to thank you all for your patience!💙 https://t.co/RX88KyQyUV
