Sony Interactive Entertainment and Kojima Productions have announced Physint, a “next-generation spy action game.” Production will begin after work is completed on Death Stranding 2: On the Beach. The platforms have not been announced.
During the presentation of Status of Play today, the founder of Kojima Productions, Hideo Kojima, said: “It will be a new and original intellectual property, a next generation action and espionage game.” “Preparations are underway, but production will begin in earnest at Kojima Productions after Death Stranding 2. We have extensive experience with Sony, having developed the spy genre together for almost 30 years. Furthermore, Sony not only makes games, but also music and movies. It will definitely be a strong collaboration.
In two years, I will celebrate the 40th anniversary of my career in game production. I am sure that this title will be the culmination of my work.” Kojima continued: “I can’t tell you 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’s 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 cinema and video games.”
The end of the announcement video seems to hint at the involvement of the film production and distribution group Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group and his company Columbia Pictures.
