Kojima has posted another cryptic teaser about the suspected upcoming Death Stranding sequel, teasing a ‘who’ will be in the next ‘where’.
Fans of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima were treated to another surprise cryptic teaser posted to his official Twitter today. The post comes in light of a rumor stating that Kojima’s next project will be a sequel to his highly popular game, Death Stranding.
Kojima Productions’ next big title, other than Xbox’s Project Overdose, has been unknown yet cryptically teased for quite some time. Kojima previously stated that he would reveal a VR title at the Tokyo Game Show. However, the only new information fans gained about the project was yet another silhouetted character teaser that some speculate as a new character Elle Fanning will portray in the possible Death Stranding sequel. A previous report also revealed a rumor surrounding an exclusive Google Stadia title from Kojima, but it was supposedly canceled due to the game being single-player only. Now, it is speculated that Kojima’s next title will be a PlayStation exclusive instead and might even be the Death Stranding sequel fans are hoping for.
The latest Twitter post revealed a picture of the silhouette of a character, possibly a woman, with bright lights behind them along with a message that reads “The answer to ‘WHO’ at TGS will be in the next ‘WHERE’.” There are many speculations flying around the internet as to what Kojima is getting at with this news. For example, there have been previous suggestions made by Death Stranding actor Norman Reedus about a possible sequel to the franchise in the works, further supporting the Elle Fanning theory. Not to mention the fact that earlier this year Kojima posted yet another cryptic message on Twitter that referenced HAL-9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The latest cryptic Twitter message does not particularly reveal anything new from what was teased at the Tokyo Game Show, but perhaps it does tease that more specific information about the “who” and “where” will soon be released. Either way, Kojima is teasing something huge and exciting for fans to look forward to, and the attempt to generate online buzz around the project is definitely working.
With so little information, and even less context, the announcement has left many of the details up to the imagination. A Death Stranding sequel is the best answer fans have come up with to each cryptic teaser so far, but there’s also room for speculation about another original title since the silhouetted character is still unknown. Another possibility fans are hoping for is a title similar to the popular P.T. demo, though previous rumors have made this idea unlikely. There is also little information to decipher regarding Overdose, so at this point, it’s just a matter of waiting to see what the next teaser will be. Either way, Kojima Productions is up to something big with its upcoming title.
