The thrill started earlier this week when, as famous by GamesRadar, Sony expanded the banner picture on the PlayStation Studios website, a splice-up of iconic Sony videogame characters together with Kratos, Aloy, and Deacon, to incorporate Sam Porter Bridges from Demise Stranding. Then, yesterday, Kojima himself tweeted the identical picture, full with the PlayStation Studios brand:
Predictably, an excellent variety of followers on Twitter instantly seized upon the tweet as affirmation that Kojima Productions was about to grow to be the following massive acquisition. It is a affordable assumption, actually: The Demise Stranding studio is not any Activision Blizzard, however making Hideo Kojima a Sony unique could be an actual coup. And Sony’s been on one thing of a tear of its personal recently, buying Bungie in January and Jade Raymond’s Haven studio in March.
Sadly for PlayStation followers (however fortunately for everybody else), it was to not be. A few hours later, Kojima tweeted on his English account that Kojima Productions “will proceed to be an unbiased studio.”

So, why did Kojima tweet that unmistakably Sony-centric picture? Perhaps he is completely happy that Sony thinks so extremely of Demise Stranding, or possibly he is that a lot of a Sony super-fan himself. It is also doable that he was simply having a bit of enjoyable with the preliminary rumors sparked by the change within the PlayStation banner. Regardless of the motive, he didn’t say—he did, nonetheless, shortly comply with as much as say that the Mexican-French thriller movie New Order, directed by Michel Franco, is so good that he purchased DVDs of two different Franco movies, Continual and April’s Daughter.
Perhaps he is actually only a random sort of man.
