Post Policenauts IP being worked on

Saw this on NeoGAF. I really wonder what it could mean. Did Konami give Kojima Productions the right to work on Policenauts? Is Death Stranding related to Policenauts in any way? Or has Konami decided to milk every IP that Kojima created for them?

What exactly is the context behind this tweet?
Did some fan ask to buy the rights to Policenauts? If so, the response sounds like “please leave” from a lowly PR-guy in the bowels of Konami. I don't think anything is actoully being done with the Policenauts IP.

That's the only thing I can realistically see Konami doing with the IP...Even then, it's a stretch.

Someone made a video pitching a potential sequel called "Policenauts Duo". I guess Konami got wind and said "Hm... We own that IP? Well shit, let's ship it to someone to make a pachinko machine instead" and messaged whoever back.

The rights I believe were coming up for renewal, so they kind of had to do something with them...like how they renewed the rights for Snatcher to do SDATCHER.
Likely this "project" is just some Japanese PS4 re-release, or a soundtrack or something...don't get your hopes up!

I still want to maybe work on Policenauts (in 3D) if I ever finish Snatcher lol! :mrgreen:

*Test image I did 6 years ago (2010) using my uber WIP Gillian model at the time...it doesn't take much to make Mr. Ingram from Mr. Seed lol!*
