Kojima-san is currently working on Death Stranding 2 for the PS5, although the game hasn’t been seen in quite some time. With Hulst having recently visited the game’s development studio – not to mention The Game Awards 2023 being just around the corner – there’s hope that we may get a long-awaited update on the sequel there.
Death Stranding 2 was officially announced at The Game Awards 2022, so there’s every chance we may see it again this year. After all, host Geoff Keighley and Kojima have long-standing friendship, and the Metal Gear creator has frequently appeared as a guest on various Keighley-fronted projects.
Earlier this year, Kojima revealed that he hand picked the cast of Death Stranding 2 himself, among which includes Elle Fanning, who will play a major role in the sequel. While not a gamer herself, Fanning’s gaming buddies reckon it’s the best thing the actress has ever done.
