For the interest of disclosure, how long ago was this interview?
With multiple cash injections, SNK is going to need to devise a coherent business plan for it's Chinese and Saudi investors, as "survive" isn't a particularly lucrative business model.
At this point setting a budget and licensing out titles to competent development teams would be an appealing option to appease fans and investors. Just don't evil genie me, and pump out a gaggle of forgettable mobage rubbish.
I can't find it anymore, but it would have been some time during SamSho 2019's life.
In regards to their new money and the idea of licensing out IP, there was a Polygon interview last year with Oda that asked both of those questions, only to not get any meaningful answers. When asked about changes from the MiSK investment, Oda said that they couldn't comment on such questions, and that it was above his pay grade. When asked about getting other developers to make games with SNK IP, Oda said that there was no rule stopping SNK from doing do, but that he couldn't say anything about SNK doing it in the future.
