Since the huge release of Death Stranding, many fans have been wondering when they might see a sequel. Hideo Kojima has proven that he is still able to weave a complex narrative into an exciting gaming experience. It looks like he will do so again, as Death Stranding 2 was announced at the 2022 Game Awards.
Popular Death Stranding to get sequel
A rather elongated trailer was shown off at the Game Awards presentation. While no gameplay specifically was shown off, familiar characters like Fragile and Sam could be seen. Fragile can be seen with baby in tow escaping an unknown threat. As they both flee outside, Timefall begins to storm and casts Fragile off her bike.
Another big clip that has apparently gained lots of attention online was a display of a large mechanical weapon. This could definitely be a hint that some elements will be returning from Kojima’s old series: Metal Gear Solid.
Kojima had created all of the games in the Metal Gear Solid franchise until his release from Konami in 2015. Death Stranding has been the new focus of Kojima’s work, and it looks like it may be a franchise that lasts quite a while.
Kojima appeared on stage after the trailer was shown to answer a few questions from Geoff Keighly. Kojima mentioned that there are “hints” that drop throughout Death Stranding 2. This might be him teasing more Metal Gear Easter Eggs for fans to discover. Death Stranding 2 has no release date as of now.
