Sony are not buying Metal Gear Solid or Silent Hill IPs Hideo Kojima confirmed in his latest interview. Kojima said these rumours are completely false and he never really listened to them in the first place.
Earlier this year, a rumour surfaced online, stating that Sony are interested in buying Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid IPs. Shortly after that, reliable insiders revealed that a new Silent Hill game is in the works over at Sony Japan Studio, fueling the speculation about IP acquisition.
However, while the game is indeed in the works and it's coming to PlayStation 5, Sony will not get the IP rights as Konami are not interested in selling those. Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima confirmed this in his latest interview with livedoor news portal.
When asked about these rumours and whether they hold any truth, Kojima simply replied that they are completely false and he never really listened to them in the first place.
The rumour was highly unlikely from the get-go but many assumed it could be true since the news about Silent Hill game started to surface shortly after that.
And while it's good to know that Silent Hill series will not become exclusive to one platform, the next game will be coming only to PlayStation 5 since Sony are funding the development of the game.
Silent Hill reboot game could be revealed at the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5 reveal event in early June.
