CEO and co-founder of PlatinumGames Atsushi Inaba (Atsushi Inaba) in an interview with the portal Chronicle of Video Games commented on the possible sale of the studio to another company.
According to Inaba, he would be open to proposals to acquire PlatinumGames, but only on the condition that the studio retains the freedom to create the games it wants.
As an example, the boss cited the recently announced merger between Microsoft and Activision Blizzard. According to Inaba, the platform owner will not restrict Activision and will allow it “Keep it up [неё] works best”.
Inaba also finds it strange that there aren’t as many such takeovers in Japan as in the rest of the world: “Sometimes you’re like these big companies with all their money, ‘Come on, buy someone!'”
Upcoming releases from PlatinumGames are classic arcade shooter Sol Cresta (February 22) and co-op fantasy action Babylon’s Fall (March 3). Also for 2022, the studio announced the slasher Bayonetta 3.
