Japanese game designer Hideo Kojima does not intend to sell his studio Kojima Productions — it will remain independent and will continue to create games on its own or with the support of external partners. The industry veteran confirmed this information as part of the latest podcast release. Brain Structure.
According to Kojima, offers to sell Kojima Productions come to him literally every day. Some companies offer the developer “crazy money“.
“Let me repeat that we are a completely independent studio. We are not directly related to any other companies.
Almost every day there are offers from all over the world. Some affiliates offer insane amounts of money, but right now I’m interested in something else. I want to do what interests me. It is for this reason that our studio was opened,” the developer noted.
Now Hideo Kojima is working on at least two major projects. The first one is rumored to be Death Stranding 2 для PlayStation 5. Second — Exclusive to Xbox, prepared with the support of Microsoft. Presumably this is Overdose horror.
