Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding will be released before 2019
Hideo Kojima’s default setting seems to be “enigmatic,” but the developer is definitely turning it up a notch for his next project, Death Stranding. Aside from the fact that it stars a (nearly nude) Norman Reedus, we don’t know much of anything about it.
But Kojima was prepared to answer questions this past weekend during a Q&A at the Tokyo Game Show, and according to IGN, he even (sort of) confirmed a release date for the game:
“It will be out before the Olympics,” said Kojima, referring to the Tokyo 2020 Games. He then went on, “To go a little further, there is a movie called Akira, and it will be out before the year in which Akira is set.”
Akira takes place in the year 2019, so it’s likely that Death Stranding will be released in 2018. Probably. Maybe. It’s at this point where I want to reference a movie of my own and quote Kyle Reese from The Terminator: “One possible future. From your point of view. I don’t know tech stuff.”
Moving on, Kojima also revealed that players will be able to tackle Death Stranding as a single-player experience, or as some kind of online multiplayer title. But he didn’t want to get too specific, only saying, “It will be a different kind of online play than anything we’ve seen before.”
Finally, the developer confirmed that Death Stranding will include a female protagonist, though no one has been cast for the part as of yet.
