Sony published Death Stranding for PS4 in November 2019 and 505 released it for PC in July 2020. The Director’s Cut hit PS5 last year and was released for PC in early 2022.
Actor Norman Reedus, who played protagonist Sam Porter Bridges in Death Stranding, seemingly confirmed that a sequel is in development in an interview published in May.
Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima recently shared on Twitter that he had started editing a trailer ahead of next week’s Gamescom event, where Geoff Keighley, who frequently partners with the designer on announcements for his games, is producing Gamescom Opening Night Live.
Kojima confirmed in June that he is working on a cloud-based project with Xbox.
“There is a game I have always wanted to make,” he said. “It’s a completely new game, one that no one has ever experienced or seen before. I’ve waited very long for the day when I could finally start to create it.
”With Microsoft’s cutting edge cloud technology and the change in the industry’s trend, it has now become possible to challenge myself to to make this never-before-seen concept.
“It may take some time, but I’m looking forward to teaming up with Xbox Game Studios and hope to bring you some exciting news in the future.”
