After teasing it in a very enigmatic way for several weeks, Hideo Kojima's next project was announced during the Game Awards 2022 . It is therefore surprisingly a direct sequel to Death Stranding .
Still so mysterious
Difficult to give details on this future game - which for the moment calls itself Death Stranding 2 but will perhaps be renamed along the way - since the trailer does not reveal much and above all makes us wonder about the evolution of the story (but we're getting used to it with Kojima).
We can find some of the characters from the first game in this video presentation: Fragile, played by Léa Seydoux , who, it seems, is raising a baby on her own, Sam Bridges, still played by Norman Reedus , who took quite a beating old, but also what seems to be Higgs, played by Troy Bake r, who also sings along the trailer.
You can see the trailer followed by the presentation of DS2 with Geoff Keighley, Hideo Kojima, and his interpreter and on the Game Awards stage.
No DS2 details yet
The Game Awards host and creator Geoff Keighley asked Kojima about the differences between DS2 and the original Death Stranding. As usual, Kojima remained discreet:
"I can't really be specific right now, but I put a lot of stuff in [the trailer] and I want you to talk about it and find details in it," he said. through his interpreter.
When asked how the COVID-19 pandemic influenced the story of this sequel, Kojima replied, "I wrote the story before the pandemic, but after living through the pandemic, I rewrote everything at from scratch. I also didn't want to predict the future any further, so I rewrote it."
For the moment, we also know that actresses Elle Fanning and Shioli Kutsuna will be added to the already well-stocked cast of Death Stranding 2.
