Hideo Kojima is Preparing his “Next Project”, Details Death Stranding’s Schedule at Tokyo Game Show 2019
Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions are currently "polishing" Death Stranding.
Hideo Kojima shared a short but nice development update on his Japanese and English Twitter accounts. He tweeted how Kojima Productions is currently handling the final touches of Death Stranding. Meaning the game is shaping up nicely for its November release.
Polishing the game while preparing things for TGS, and promotions after that as well as for the next project.

Kojima also mentioned he’s preparing for his “next project”. This isn’t particularly surprising, as any game developer will think their moves ahead. Making a game is an ever-changing process, and a new game releasing today was always born from ideas, new or recycled after they initially got cut, fomenting years earlier. One good guess is that it’ll be something getting closer and closer to a movie, as Kojima often states games and movies will one day merge, and wishes to be a pioneer in that way. He’s also preparing something big in relation to streaming and cloud gaming, so it might be related to that.
Lastly, Kojima detailed the schedule for Death Stranding at Tokyo Game Show 2019. We’ll get an explanation of how the game flows overall on September 12, and a “certain scene” following that will be revealed on September 14. Lastly, September 15 will feature a stage show with Hideo Kojima and the seiyuu (Japanese cast) of Death Stranding, as it was the case last year.
Kojima recently teased how Death Stranding‘s multiplayer is similar to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. He also mentioned Keanu recently paid him a visit.
Death Stranding is launching on November 8 on PS4. You can preorder it on Amazon. Tokyo Game Show 2019 is happening from September 12 to 15, look forward to our coverage.
