When Death Stranding was unveiled at this year’s E3, featuring a naked Norman Reedus, it left spectators equally excited and confused. Despite what little information is known about the game, Hideo Kojima assures fans it will be his “best work so far.”
“So far, when I’ve been making games, I’ve had to give up on something or at least compromise on something in order to get things done,” said Kojima during the Develop Brighton keynote, according to DigitalSpy.
“But this time, working with you (Mark Cerny) and you bringing the state of the art technologies, we will get around that (usual problem).
“I’m very confident that we’re working towards something completely new and that no-one has seen so far,” he continued. “This will be my best work so far, I’m very confident about that.”
Death Stranding will be Kojima’s first game since leaving Konami last year. The game is expected to be quite early in development. No gameplay was shown during its debut and the in-game engine may still be under consideration between two candidates.
No release date or window for the game has been discussed. However, it will eventually launch first on the PlayStation 4.
