Game designer Hideo Kojima said that Death Stranding was profitable on PlayStation 4. This is despite the rumors suggsting otherwise, as well as the reluctance of Sony to disclose any sales data for the title.
This Kojima revealed in an interview from late March, which a Resetra user has partially translated into English just now.
According to the interview, Death Stranding has generated enough revenue for Kojima Productions to be already working on the next project, which is still in planning phase. Kojima is also counting on the PC release of the game to further boost its performance.
As for the IP rights for P.T. and Metal Gear Solid, they remain with Konami.
