Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Kojima Productions have announced Physint, a “next-generation action espionage game.” Production will begin after work is complete on Death Stranding 2: On the Beach. Platforms were not announced.
“It will be a brand new, original IP, a next-generation action espionage game,” Kojima Productions founder Hideo Kojima said during today’s State of Play presentation. “Preparations are underway, but production will begin in earnest at Kojima Productions after Death Stranding 2. We have extensive experience with Sony, having grown the espionage genre together for almost 30 years. Also, Sony not only does games, but also music and movies. It will definitely be a strong collaboration. Two years from now, I will celebrate the 40th anniversary of my game production career. I am confident that this title will be the culmination of my work.”
Kojima continued, “I cannot tell you so much now, but we plan to bring together cutting-edge technology and talent from around the world to create it. Of course, it’s an interactive game, but it is also a movie at the same time, in terms of look, story, theme, cast, acting, fashion, and sound. With this title, we hope to transcend the barriers between film and video games.”
The end of the announcement video appears to tease the involvement of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group’s film production and distribution company Columbia Pictures.
