Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima’s next game is reportedly a horror title called Overdose that could feature actress Margaret Qualley. Tom Henderson for Try Hard Guides reported that the footage “seems to show Mama from Death Stranding wearing a blue dress. The game, however, does not appear to be Death Stranding 2…”
Qualley was one of many celebrities who appeared in Death Stranding. She also had a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and starred on Netflix’s drama Maid.
The report said footage of Overdose showed Qualley’s character in the reported game “walking through a corridor with a flashlight in third-person.” However, the report said the game can be played in first-person as well. The footage ended with a jump scare and a title card that said “GAMEOVER,” the report said.
Kojima has spoken openly about wanting to make a horror game. In 2020, after releasing PT (which was actually a teaser for a Silent Hills project that never materialized), Kojima said he had ideas for a horror game that would make you defecate in your pants.
“I would like to make another horror game someday. Something that uses a revolutionary method to create terror, that doesn’t just make you pee your pants, but crap them. I already have ideas in mind,” he said.
It was previously reported that Kojima’s studio, Kojima Productions, had signed a deal with Microsoft for an Xbox-exclusive title, though whether or not it’s Overdose–if that game is even real–remains to be seen. Separate to this, Death Stranding actor Norman Reedus has claimed Death Stranding 2 is in development.
If Kojima is planning a reveal for any new project soon, it could happen during any number of the Not-E3 press conferences coming up soon. One possibility is Summer Game Fest Live on June 9, which is hosted by Kojima’s good friend Geoff Keighley. Another possibility is the Xbox/Bethesda showcase on June 12.
