Hideo Kojima, a name that everyone that just remotely knows something about the gaming industry is familiar with. True, Death Stranding wasn’t exactly his best work (that’s putting it mildly, but just go with it), but that doesn’t mean that we’re not already looking forward to his next project (that isn't Death Stranding 2)… which he seemingly has now teased for Christmas.
What’s Kojima’s Next Game?

There is no name for this game yet, and it might not even be a game, but… come on. “From Sapiens to Ludens” might not be the title, but it could be a first hint for the plot. Sapiens are humans and then Ludens could be some form of advanced humans? Like I said in the title, the art for this card reminds me a lot of Detroit Become Human, so maybe some sort of androids?
It also gives off major Watch Dog vibes. Now imagine a Detroit Become Human x Watch Dogs game… from Kojima! It’d be insane, right?
There is nothing but this holiday card that teases this possible game, so not much to go by. Still, we believe that this is the first teaser for Kojima’s next game, because he could have just used Death Stranding characters for a holiday card otherwise. These characters seem too unique to just be randoms.
The game might also be in super early development, so don’t expect it to come out anytime soon (again, if it even is his next game). Maybe in 2022 we can expect more Kojima news... whether they're about Death Stranding 2 or about this new game, who knows.
