Word has it that the Death Stranding Release Date is expected to be around the year 2018, according to the director of the game himself, Hideo Kojima.
Death Stranding Gameplay
What is known so far is that the gameplay would mainly be an open world environment action game. It would also have multiplayer functions. The game would also be using the Decima engine.
Death Stranding Release Date
No exact date was given yet, despite the estimated year to release the game being announced by Hideo Kojima himself. Kojima also ensured that the real development stage for the game takes place next year.
Assuming full-time development starts early 2017, the game would most likely be released late 2018, or even earlier if things get lucky. This is also not taking into account the probability of the game undergoing delays for various possible reasons.
Ever since it was announced, Death Stranding has gained quite a following from the fans of the Metal Gear series creator. This is the first game from Hideo Kojima ever since he officially broke up with Konami.
Konami appears to have issues when it comes to the treatment of some of their key employees. Koji Igarashi of Castlevania fame is another example of someone who had undergone issues with Konami. His Kickstarter funded game “Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night” has gained quite some support from the fans ever since he left the company.
There is also the possibility that Hideo Kojima intends for the Death Stranding Release Date to coincide with the Olympics. This approach is similar to how Shigeru Miyamoto is aiming for that specific event to unleash the first Nintendo World Theme Park.
