Abandoned studio thanks Kojima for ‘addressing conspiracy theories openly’

From VGC: "Blue Box Game Studios, the developer behind the horror game Abandoned, has thanked Hideo Kojima for publicly addressing long-running speculation that he’s involved in the vapourware project.

Earlier this week Kojima broke his silence about being linked to the project on his podcast, Brain Structure, in an attempt to end months of rumours that the Metal Gear creator was the secret mastermind behind the controversial game.

“We want to thank @Kojima_Hideo for addressing the conspiracies openly,” Blue Box tweeted. “It has been a burden and not cool for both fans and developers. We hope everyone can close this for good.”"

Oh yes, a "burden". Is that why you did little to no disputing yourself?

SinisterKieran562d ago

Not true in the slightest, on more then one occasion, they said they weren’t involved. This is a tweet in 2021. “ We wanted to set things straight. We have no relations with Konami. Silent Hill is owned by Konami. We do not have any relations with Hideo Kojima. It was never our intention to tease the name as Silent Hill. We sincerely apologize for this.”
And they kept addressing this rumour over and over. This is the fans fault

Yep you're right, it's all the fans fault and absolutely not Hasan Kahraman's own doing at all. He's the victim here and a stand up guy. Not even close to being a con artist or opportunist.

So what about posting a blurry photo of a guy in a eye patch while people think your game is connected to Kojima?

EvertonFC562d ago

Wasn't they like 1 year late with that reply ?

SinisterKieran562d ago

So did or did they not say they weren’t connected to kojima in any way? Because it seems clear as day that they said they weren’t. Kinda seems like dumbasses wanted there to be a connection.

Thanking him for resolving a conspiracy that they basically encouraged and rode for as long as they could. How nice of them.

Ank666562d ago

Kojima again speaking about the game & the studio just to revive the debate when no one is even talking about it anymore is yet again a fishy scenario & action.

Are you serious!? That was almost a year after they created the conspiracy theory themselves, intentionally numerous times trying to promote that it was linked. They openly used him as a marketing tool to a point I’m surprised they haven’t been sued. I would imagine there has been some form of talks between solicitors at some point. Which is maybe why it’s now cancelled.

Do yourself a favor and actually educate yourself on what really happened.

Moe-Gunz562d ago

Should be more concerned about their lack of follow through with what they said they'll release.

Take-Two CEO: We're So Focused on Delivering More Value Than We Charge

Take-Two head honcho Strauss Zelnick states every time they establish a price, they want to make sure it's "good news for consumers."

It's the why we close servers after 2 years, why we re-use the same assets every year, and why we bundle our game with enjoyable microtransactions.

Running digital casinos in every game

Can you please focus on delivering enough quality content to justify the $70 asking price? While I appreciate the idea of over-delivering, it's essential to ensure that the base content itself is worth it. I have concerns that GTA6 might have less single-player content because most of the focus seems to be shifting towards online play and microtransactions

The sleaze oozes out of these gaming CEOs faces. It's honestly disturbing how distorted people look when you've realized how money obsessed they really are. He gives off "in one ear and straight out the other" vibes.

I really don't get it

do they think anyone believes what they say?
is it that being in charge surrounds you by so many yesmen that they get deluded into thinking everyone is like that?

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 launch trailer will send shivers down your spine

Ninja Theory's latest trailer for their highly anticipated narrative action-adventure Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 is absolute cinema.

Reaper22_6h ago

Like I said before, buying Ninja Theory was one of the smartest moves by Microsoft. Games looks incredible.

Rynxie2h ago

Unfortunately, their games aren't big sellers. Will MS shut them down if hellblade 2 sells below expectations?

outsider162423m ago

If it sells below expectations, then i expect it to come to PS5.
