The YouTube channel The Know is reporting that Hideo Kojima is being courted by Microsoft Studios.
About a month ago The Know reported from a source that Microsoft was trying to purchase the brand Silent Hill from Konami, but apparently that deal fell through since Konami wanted a ton of stock in Microsoft in exchange for the rights to the game. Well Microsoft wasn’t going for that.
So now Microsoft is reportedly courting Metal Gear creator and former Konami employee Kojima and his dev team so who knows what the two will come up together.
Since he left Konami the video game world has been wondering what would be Kojima’s next move and him going to Microsoft exclusively could be very beneficial for the Xbox One that is currently trailing Sony’s PS4 in sales. Not to mention a string of Kojima produced games exclusive to the Xbox might help Microsoft finally crack into the Japanese gaming market.
We’ll keep you updated if we hear anymore.
