Sources say that Sony is about to make a big acquisition and it will be bigger than the already denied rumors about Kojima Productions.
Although Sony has acquired several major game development studios in the past few months, such as Bungie, the company behind Destiny. However, sources claim that Sony is aiming to close another acquisition in the near future and it will make waves in the gaming industry.
More specifically, just recently, Jeff Grubb himself said that Sony’s next acquisition would be one of the biggest, and the most popular opinion of the community at the time was that Sony was targeting into Hideo Kojima’s studio Kojima Productions. Recently Grubb was sure that the studio is not Kojima Productions, but even bigger than that.
It’s now well known that Hideo Kojima himself denied the acquisition, and Grubb further emphasized this by saying that Sony is ultimately aiming for something bigger than Kojima Productions. As of now, Kojima Productions has only launched one main title since Kojima has gone solo, so the studio’s portfolio is still pretty slim despite it being a major player in the industry. As a result, Grubb has also asserted that Sony has set its sights higher, so the acquisition must be substantial.
The idea that Sony could acquire Kojima Productions is not necessarily unreasonable, as the gaming community has pointed out that not only Kojima himself has had many successful projects released in collaboration with Sony, but Death himself Stranding has been published by Sony Interactive Entertainment since the beginning. Of course, this rumor was later denied, but it was the most likely hypothesis that every gamer could come up with.
Sony’s “really big” studio acquisition has long been known, or at least the company is planning something big behind the scenes. While many sources confirm this acquisition exists, it seems that no one knows exactly what this acquisition will lead to as there have not been any leaks to rely on. The web of rumors has opened up more widely, with some believing that Sony may be targeting EA, while others suggesting it should be Ubisoft. FromSoftware, Capcom and Square Enix have also been hypothesized, but there is no word that Sony is targeting any of these studios.
In other potentially related news, Sony invested $200 million in Epic Games less than a week ago. Whether or not that has anything to do with Sony’s purported acquisition we can only guess, and what’s particularly frustrating is that the deal may not even be revealed anytime soon. next. For now, only time will tell if Sony is planning something big to surprise gamers.
