Hideo Kojima’s latest upcoming game Death Stranding is the most intriguing game which has not revealed much yet. but people are anxiously waiting to get more details about it.
The community hoped that Kojima will reveal more details about the game at E3 2017. but just a few days before the event Kojima and his team announced that the game won’t be appearing at the event which left many people disappointed and heart broken.
But In a recent interview between The Telegraph and Sony Interactive America President Shawn Layden. it was revealed that the Death Stranding development is going well and he has played a small part of it.
He was asked apart from two CGI trailer does the game even exist or are still in the concept stage? to which he answered:-
“No, no – its up and running,” Layden confirms. “It’s been aided tremendously after Kojima-San decided to co-opt the Decima [graphics] engine from Guerrilla [that powered Horizon Zero Dawn]. And, gosh, that really gave him a leg up to get up and running and test it and have some prototype levels running. I couldn’t explain to you what the game is…”
On further questioning about Death Stranding from the interviewer:-
Does that mean you’ve actually played some of it? “I have actually played some of it.”
And is it as revolutionary as Kojima-San is promising? “[After a thoughtful pause] All that and more!”
So it actually exists? “It actually exists.”
Previously it was confirmed by PS4’s lead architect Mark Cerny that it is developing well under the Kojima’s Team. though he didn’t play the game he saw some early work about which he said: “It is in the best sense possible ‘a Kojima game”.
Well, it is good to know that Death Stranding won’t be a dead project like Scalebound and will be a reality. though no release date has been announced yet it is expected to release in late 2018.
