It comes as no shock that tons of huge names within the gaming trade need Kojima Productions below their banner, however so long as he’s alive, Hideo Kojima isn’t going to let that occur. He desires his studio to stay an indie studio with out affiliation or backing of anyone firm.
Throughout an episode of his Mind Construction podcast, he reiterated that Kojima Productions is an indie studio. He’s so religious to that indie life-style that the Demise Stranding lead gone on report that he’s rejected a number of of “ridiculously excessive” presents and presents from “all over the world.”
Contemplating his previous and supreme exit of Konami, which ended up outright scrapping the subsequent entry to the extremely standard Silent Hill franchise, Silent Hills, pulling the plug on the playable teaser, P.T., which was a troublesome determination, it is smart why he’d need all of the management he can to verify his imaginative and prescient of his video games come to life.
Kojima Productions promoting full assertion
“Let me iterate that we’re indies. We have now no affiliations in any respect and we’re not backed by anybody.
And on daily basis I’m approached by presents all around the world to purchase our studio. A few of these presents are ridiculously excessive costs, but it surely’s not that I need cash. I wish to make what I wish to make. That’s why I create this studio.
As long as I’m alive, I don’t suppose I’ll ever settle for these presents.”
