The past few years have seen huge changes in the gaming industry, with Microsoft spending nearly 80 billion to acquire full publishers like Activision Blizzard and Bethesda, with Sony acquiring Bungie and eight other studios by 2021, while other giants, like Tencent, Embracer, Electronic Arts, has also made an impressive string of acquisitions.
Apparently, buyers also targeted Kojima Productionsthe independent development team founded in 2015 by the legendary video game designer Hideo Kojima, when Konami left. Specifically, in the context of the conversation Brain Structure Podcast From, the Japanese creator revealed that many companies from all over the world have come to his doorstep bags of money. In particular, without naming these companies, Kojima said that The sums he saw in these proposals were so great that they seemed ‘ridiculous’.
Speaking about it, he affirmed:
Let me reiterate that we are independent. We have absolutely no affiliation and are not sponsored by anyone.
Every day I receive offers from all over the world to buy our studio. Some of them are ridiculously expensive, but I don’t want the money. I want to do what I want to do. That’s why I created this studio.
So, as long as I’m alive, I don’t think I’ll ever accept these offers.
So it seems, after such resonant statements, that Kojima Productions is a group that should be removed from the lists of potential targets for the Giants, as they intend to remain independent.
At this point, it’s worth noting that we’re officially aware that Kojima is developing a game in collaboration with Xbox, which will harness the power of the cloud, while also rumored to be working on Death Stranding 2 in collaboration with PlayStation.
