business news Kojima Productions acquired by PlayStation? Hideo sets the record straight
The rumor has been simmering since yesterday and has become the main topic of discussion for many: And whether Kojima Productions was bought by Sony? After adding fuel to the fire himself this morning, Hideo Kojima came out to smother the fire on Twitter.
Redemption & Clink
We told you about it yesterday: Sony has updated the banner on its PlayStation Studios website to include Death Stranding. As a result, good old Sam Porter Bridges (played by the timeless Norman Reedus) found himself alongside Aloy, Kratos, Ratchet, Deacon St John or even Ellie: in short, just alongside icons designed by PlayStation Studios games… and therefore owned by Sony.
Inevitably there was something to fascinate and Many believed that the announcement of the Kojima Productions acquisition would follow quickly. This morning, Hideo Kojima himself shared the famous banner on his Twitter account, fueling the rumors considerably… except it really isn’t. The Japanese director spoke on this topic in the social network:
Sorry for the misunderstanding, but KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS was and remains an independent studio.

The adventure continues
We remind you that the rumors of the corridors are going well about the next game from Kojima Productions that we know is in development: this would obviously be a horror game and above all, it could be made exclusive for Xbox, hand in hand with Microsoft. In any case, this has been said very seriously for months.
Difficult to see in all this, especially when we know the excellent relations between the Japanese creator and Sony, allies for decades. We imagine that we must endure our toils patiently: Perhaps we’ll have more information this summer during events organized by Geoff Keighley?
