Kojima Shuts Down PlayStation Acquisition Rumours

Hideo Kojima has put to rest online rumours that PlayStation Studios has acquired Kojima Productions.

The rumours started when PlayStation Studios updated its banner of first-party IPs it has released.

Among the many titles showcased includes; Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank: A Rift in Time, Santa Monica’s God of War: Ragnarok, Sucker Punch’s Ghost Tsushima, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II, and Kojima’s Death Stranding.

There is one main key difference between the shown titles and associated developers; Kojima Production is still an independent studio.

Kojima retweeted himself, noting;

“I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, but KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS has been and will continue to be an independent studio”.

However, Bluepoint infamously stated something similar following a leaked image. And then, it was later revealed to have been acquired by PlayStation Studios.

So, this could be a case of the PlayStation Studios telling us more than we publicly know currently…or just that it was adding a successful title to its marketing. Either way, I suppose we’ll find out in due time.
