Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding 2 announced at the Game Awards

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,

Hideo Kojima, the maker of the superb and legendary Metal Gear Solid and the wonderfully abstract Death Stranding, has announced his newest game — Death Stranding 2. Surprise!

We know you have mopped up all those Death Stranding Director's Cut trophies and have made an effort at all the Metal Gear ones too — you little snake, you. Get ready for more, though; Hideo Kojima has just announced Death Stranding 2.

Kojima has a new franchise with PlayStation

One of the best PS4 games is no doubt Death Stranding, and prior to that Metal Gear Solid dominated every PlayStation console it touched. Now Hideo Kojima's sequel to his new series is ready to reach those heady heights, again. Death Stranding 2 was revealed at the Game Awards, hosted by the man himself Geoff Keighley, and the latest teaser showcased some very odd titbits, indeed.

Lea Seydoux is back with a real baby, though it isn't clear if it is Norman Reedus' child. They have character names in DS2 by the way, but who knows what DieDeathManWoman nickname they have now. After the trailer aired Kojima said there were plenty of hints as to what it could be, so we are hyped beyond reason. There is a hint that we will be delving into the capitalist semantics of the sixth stranding, but we shall see!

This game has been teased for a long while, but it was unclear how soon it would be coming. Overdose, which was apparently one of up to three games in development at Kojima Productions, has been leaked in the past so it looks like Kojima Productions is really ramping up.

With this latest game, we should see the creative mind of Kojima branch out on his new hiking and postage simulator journey. We look forward to it, Death Stranding 1 was fab — though we don't know that it needed a sequel. What do you think of what was shown? Let us know in the comments below!
