Hideo Kojima’s bizarre teaser comes to an end with the not-so-surprising announcement of Death Stranding 2 which will be a direct sequel to the original.

As for the new faces who did not appear in the trailer, it will be possible to discover Elle Fanning and Shioli Kutsuna in roles that are still unknown, but certainly very important. New protagonists perhaps?

Otherwise, Kojima also spoke about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the development of the game. Without this page of our history, the scenario of this episode could have been drastically different:

I wrote the story just before the pandemic, but after experiencing it, I picked up the narrative from scratch. I didn’t want to predict the future again, so I rewrote everything.

After a trip to a decimated America in death stranding first of the name, the direction of the scenario will therefore be different from the original plans. For the moment, no release date has been announced, but the title will be released on PlayStation 5 like the original opus, which remained exclusive for some time.
