Abandoned: Was the name suggested by Metal Gear Solid 5? The hypothesis of the fans


The chaos around Abandoned doesn't seem to end. The game of Blue Box Game Studios is still shrouded in mystery and, at this point, the hypotheses of fans on the exact nature of the video game are many and disparate. For some it's Silent Hill, for others it's just an ordinary indie, others are looking for links with Metal Gear Solid. Now, some believe that the name "Abandoned" was already suggested by Metal Gear Solid 5.

As you can hear below, in one of the audio recordings that you can hear inside Metal Gear Solid 5, there is one in which the characters talk about the various clones of the protagonist. The most interesting part is contained in the last twenty seconds of the recording, in which the words "Might as well call it Abandoned" are pronounced or "We might as well call him Abandoned" or, keeping the name in English, "We might as well call him Abandoned". But we know that "Abandoned" is not the real name of the Blue Box Game Studios game: it is just a code name.

The hypothesis, therefore, is that the game's code name is another reference to Kojima. We think the connection is a bit exaggerated, but it is not an impossible thing. The real point is that this does not mean that Kojima is behind the work. The reference could be a deliberate choice of Blue Box Game Studios. Or is it a coincidence: after all it is a normal word, not a strange or little used term.

For the moment, it seems that there are real developers of a real team behind the project, who have become entangled in a mix of references and coincidences that gave the project much more visibility than Blue Box Game Studios would have ever expected, which prompted the team to postpone the presentation to improve Abandoned and not disfigure in front of the whole world. We hope that the matter will be resolved soon. Meanwhile, however, fans see P.T. in the new game image.

'Abandoned' Teaser Suggests It's Actually A 'Metal Gear Solid' Game: Report

  • 'Abandoned' is a survival horror game
  • It is currently in development at Blue Box Game Studios
  • 'Abandoned' will release on PS5 and Microsoft Windows
  • Blue Box Game Studios shared a new teaser for its upcoming PS5 game 'Abandoned' Tuesday, which triggered fans to speculate the game is actually a 'Metal Gear Solid' title.

    Among them is the Russian gaming journalist and industry insider Anton Loginov. According to him, the upcoming PS5 title from Blue Box Game Studios is, in fact, a new entry in Hideo Kojima's 'Metal Gear' series. The claim surfaced following the developer's tweet asking fans if they are ready along with a photo showing the game's title and a background with a blurred image.

    'Are you ready? We are!' the tweet read.

    The obscured image shows a character wearing an eye patch, which is seemingly a nod to Big Boss of the 'Metal Gear' series. The Russian insider believes that 'Abandoned' is actually 'Metal Gear Solid 6.' He also claimed that Konamo is currently working on the sequel and noted that someone deliberately replicated Kojima's marketing style.

    The insider also suggested that Konami could be preparing for the announcement of a remake. Loginov has earned his reputation in the industry because of the leaks he provided fans with about upcoming releases. He leaked about the PC ports of 'Death Stranding' and 'Horizon Zero Dawn' before the official announcements were made. He also previously revealed that 'Bloodborne Remaster' could roll out to PC and PS5 soon.

    Blue Box Game Studios has repeatedly denied it is connected with Hideo Kojima. However, it looks like it was not enough to dissuade fans from forming theories and speculating about 'Abandoned' and Kojima. While the chances of the upcoming PS5 title being a Kojima title is slim, the constant connections of Blue Box Game Studios with Hideo Kojima is getting increasingly intriguing.

    The latest 'Abandoned' teaser is available and fans can now pre-load the 'Abandoned Realtime Experience.'

    However, fans should not expect more as it will not go live until Aug. 10. 

    'Abandoned' is a survival horror game currently in development at Blue Box Game Studios which is slated to be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The upcoming title is set to launch on PS5 and Microsoft Windows.
