Continuously disputed between Sony and Xbox, Hideo has the idea of denying the acquisition: Kojima Productions will still remain an independent studio
The tiritera of Kojima Productions and the alleged acquisition at the hands of Sony o Xbox has been going on for a year now. In the case of Microsoft consoles, this would be an exclusive conceived as a purely cloud title. Last July the journalist and insider Jeff Grubb he spoke of an almost complete agreement.

Neither Xbox nor Sony: Kojima Productions does not foresee any acquisition
Stamattina, Hideo Kojima ha voluto confuse the waters a little tweeting an image containing the various IPs of Sony: later, without any implication for Xbox, the game designer denied the rumors about the acquisition of his studio Productions. Regarding them, Jeff Grubb simply shrugged. According to him, exclusivity deals do not involve any kind of takeover. In other words, the denial of a rumor of astronomical significance has not completely silenced the rumors about a “simple” exclusive. On the contrary, we rather expect to hear about it for a long time to come.
I’m sorry for the misunderstanding, but KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS has been and will continue to be an independent studio. https://t.co/2M0n4ogRaa
