Furthering this theory, Glitched also reported that one Reddit user, claiming to be mutual friends with Mikami, wrote that the game director shared a post on November 1 that detailed how he was working on a project about God Hand. 

The same user also claims that Mikami’s post made mention of the Game Awards. Given they will be taking place on December 8 this year, there is a chance that this project could officially be revealed at the event.
