At the very least I hope they are making a Helldivers 2, but 3rd person and 4 player split-screen local.
From won't happen though, Kadokawa aren't going to sell them off.
Kojima Productions maybe, but its a dev that is pretty much united around Kojima. Without him, what does the company actually offer? I think Sony are better off continuing contract work with them
Well obviously im talking about getting Kojima to be a part of Sonys first party.
And yeah the danger is that Kojima is still an individual and he could quit later on and the studio wouldnt be the same without him, but as long as Sony gives him full creative control (which is something ive read sony does a lot with their studios), i dont see why he would wanna quit especially when he would now have a big company behind them backing them up, giving them a big budget for their games all while giving them creative control.
EDIT: just realized that your argument can be made for From Soft as well (what would it be without Miyazaki?), and for every other studio, after all its the people behind the studio what really matters and anyone could quit later on, its the reason why talented studios of the past (like Rare or Bioware) arent as amazing as they used to be, since many talented people have moved on to other companies.
In other words its a risk thats always present regardless of what studio they would aquire, although i get your point that with Kojipro its a bit more risky since its just this one guy who has this amazing legacy in the industry and if he left it would be a big blow to the studio.Last edited by estebxx - on 21 May 2019
