Hideo Kojima: Death Stranding Was Profitable, Next Game in Planning Stages - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 June 2020 / 1,854 Views
Kojima added the team is currently in the planning stages for its next game. This is after a big project they were working on was cancelled.
"We surpassed the amount we needed to make a profit, so I think it sold well enough to be called a 'success, recoupment of development costs included," Kojima said when asked about the sales for Death Stranding. "We’ll release the PC version soon and have already secured enough profit to prepare for what’s next, so there’s no need to worry."
"I can’t say anything since it’s still in the planning stages, but we’re doing various work behind the scenes. Just recently, a big project fell apart, so I’m a bit upset about that (laughs)," he added. "Well, that sort of thing happens often in this industry."
Kojima did say the rumors the studio acquired the copyrights to Metal Gear Solid and P.T. were "completely false."
Death Stranding is available now for the PlayStation 4 and will launch for Windows PC on July 24.
