Hideo Kojima Microsoft Deal Reportedly within the Works


Rumor mill has it that Hideo Kojima and Microsoft are in talks to publish Kojima Productions‘ subsequent title, however there’s no affirmation of a deal being closed as of but.

This report got here from journalist and insider Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat, who corroborated theories that the looks of Ludens figurine in a Phil Spencer video was teasing a possible exclusivity deal. Microsoft has teased a number of bulletins equally previously.

Curiously, what sparked Grubb’s report was the rumor that Kojima is one way or the other concerned within the recently-announced PlayStation 5 unique, Deserted. We’re unsure the place this rumor got here from, however Blue Field took to its web site to make clear that it has no affiliation with Kojima. Its assertion reads:

We acquired a number of emails concerning the Hideo Kojima rumor. We now have no affiliation with Hideo Kojima nor can we declare to have any affiliation nor was it our intention to say such a press release. We’re a small group of builders engaged on a passionate title we wished to work on for a very long time. We now have been aiding different studios previously with their tasks and we wished to work on our very first large mission. Whereas it’s true that we’ve been engaged on small tasks previously, we definitely didn’t use that for advertising and marketing functions. We hope this has clarified this matter and hope to see you all in our very first gameplay reveal of Deserted.

In line with Grubb, Microsoft pursuing a cope with Kojima is a part of the corporate’s efforts to recruit Japanese expertise.
