State of Play January 2024 Roundup: Hideo Kojima’s PS6 Metal Gear Solid 6 Sequel Titled Physint. PS5 Reveals: Silent Hill: The Short Message Free Game, BioShock Creator’s Judas, Death Stranding 2, Rise of the Ronin, Metro Awakening VR

Sony at 2pm PT / 5pm ET / 10pm GMT today held its State of Play Games video presentation for January 2024, showing off upcoming first- and third-party games coming to PS5, PSVR2, and surprisingly the very first PS6 game ever revealed.

This State of Play broadcast focused on updates to previously announced games coming to PlayStation consoles. From indie and PS VR2 highlights, to major upcoming titles.

Hideo Kojima’s PS6 Metal Gear Solid 6 / spiritual sequel is titled Physint. To quote Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima what the game is about:

“Yes, it will be a brand new, original IP, a next-generation ACTION ESPIONAGE game. Preparations are underway, but production will begin in earnest at Kojima Productions after Death Stranding 2 [is completed in 2025]. 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. […] 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 is 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. […] Stay tuned!”
