Sony is said to be pursuing plans to buy Kojima Productions. Death Stranding developers are reportedly currently working on a horror game for the PS5.
Would like to Sony Buy Kojima Productions? This rumor is currently circulating on the Internet, but should be treated with caution.
Will Kojima Productions become a Sony first party studio?
Twitter user HipHopGamer, who appears to have good contacts in the industry, explains in a video that Sony is pursuing these plans while the studio behind Death Stranding is working on a horror game for the PS5. HipHopGamer, however, does not state any sources, which is why it is not entirely clear whether he has background information or simply speculates.
It is already known that Hideo Kojima would like to develop a horror game. And it is also very likely that this (also) will appear for Playstation 5. It is also conceivable that Sony would like to have this game as an exclusive title for the PS5 and perhaps therefore wants to buy the studio. However, Hideo Kojima's independence has been very important so far, which is why it is somewhat unlikely that such a purchase will be made. According to HipHopGamer, Hideo Kojima should also have influenced the design of the Playstation 5. It is currently not possible to say whether there is anything in these rumors.
