Speaking about the case on his stream, Grubb said:
“If you’ve heard of rumors of a major acquisition from Sony, it was never Kojima Productions – at least as far as I know. People who heard this – including me – never [thought] it was a name that was thrown around. It was bigger than Kojima Productions. “
Clearly, the very idea of a major PlayStation acquisition is very much in the world of rumors, so nothing is set in stone at the moment.
That said, Grubb rarely makes mistakes in this kind of thing, and the previous story about Kojima Productions, which was brought into the PlayStation Studios fold, seemed to revolve more around the fact that Death Stranding: Director’s Cut was released under PlayStation Studios (instead of 505 games). as was previously the case with the PS4 version of the game).
