Kojima Prod coveted by giants of the video game industry like PlayStation, Xbox and others? Hideo Kojima makes revelations on the subject and dots the i’s.
In his latest podcast “Brain Structure”, Hideo Kojima addressed the issue of his independence. He values the freedom of his Kojima Prod studio more than anything.
Kojima Prod awash in redemption requests
Hideo Kojima persists and signs, his studio Kojima Prod is not for sale and probably never will be, even for the most generous offers. And yet, it is not the requests that are missing as he revealed on his show.
We are on good terms with everyone in the industry. And every day, I receive offers from all over the world to buy our studio. Some of his offerings are ridiculously high priced, but money is not what I covet. I want to do what I want to do. It is for this reason that I created this studio. So as long as I’m alive, I don’t think I’ll accept these offers.
During a previous rumor of a takeover by PlayStation, the creator had already held this speech and denied it by stating “ I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, but Kojima Prod has been and will remain an independent studio ». His opinion on his craving for creative independence has not changed either. During an old interview, he explained that instead of taking risks with Death Stranding, he could have sought to win big by producing a battle royale. Geoff Keighley, host of the Game Awards, encouraged him on this path to remain independent for “to be in control of your own destiny”.
Currently, Kojima Prod has a project that could disrupt video games with Xbox, and Death Stranding 2 with PlayStation.
