Xbox has been aggressively expanding its portfolio of exclusive and exclusive titles over the past few months. While most of the company's efforts have been focused on acquiring new studios to develop the original title, rumors spread a few months ago about talks between Xbox and Hideo Kojima about the exclusivity of the new Xbox. Rumors of discussions began in April, with several sources claiming Sony initially handed over the next game to Kojima before discussions with Xbox began. Last week there were rumors that Kojima and Xbox were making a deal for a new game, which has now happened. A new update on the relationship between the two comes from GamesBeat, which states that Xbox and Kojima have signed a letter of intent. The letter is far from a formal contract or publication agreement, but it does mean that both parties have agreed on a framework for the agreement, but lawyers have not clarified the nuances between the two groups. Some fans are worried that the recently announced Death Stranding: Director's Cut will hinder a new deal between the two as it's exclusive to the PlayStation 5. So it's good to see that it doesn't look like it. GamesBeat also reports that discussions have been going on for months and are nearing completion so Microsoft has started preparing resources for Kojima's new game. Exactly what Kojima's next game will be is unknown in most countries, but according to the agreement, the goal is to support Kojima's creativity with the right resources, rather than buying explicit ideas or concepts from Microsoft. With the early development of the new game, it seems unlikely that this will be a sudden action game that was recently discontinued by Kojima Productions. It will be interesting to see what comes out of the partnership between Xbox and Hideo Kojima. Kojima is definitely a legendary game developer who creates some of the most iconic and classic games in the industry, and while Microsoft is ready to give him the resources to create an entirely new project, it's not clear what that will look like. There are a lot of rumors about what Kojima is working on next and it will be interesting to see not only Kojima's future but the future of the deal as well.
