The information comes from Famitsu, in an article compiling various Japanese video game developers’ aspirations for 2022. Hideo Kojima mentions in his aspirations section (translated via Google Translate):
Searching for a new generation of development system, regaining the flexible and communicative, speedy production rhythm before Corona as a studio.
Under the recent reports, he also mentions:
A big title and a new challenging title. Furthermore, we would like to make a year in which we will take a step forward in media and expressions that are different from games, toward the near future where the boundaries of entertainment will disappear.
Kojima also notes what players should look out for in 2022:
The year when the entertainment industry will surely change with streaming. The change in the form provided will have a great impact on the work itself and the business method. It will be a year when those changes can be clearly seen.
Based on everything he shared, it would seem that Kojima as a developer is very interested in streaming as well, which could mean that we may see some form of it for his next projects. Whatever it will be in the end, there is no doubt that this new game from Hideo Kojima will generate tons of hype from gamers across platforms.
