Hideo Kojima surprised everyone at E3 this year by unveiling his first game underneath Sony’s wing, Death Stranding, which is set to star Norman Redus. Talking about the game recently, the producer claimed that the game will be his “best work so far.”
Speaking at Develop earlier this week, Kojima revealed that in previous games he’s had to cut back on certain features or “compromise on something”, but with Death Stranding things are going to be different.
“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,” he said. “But this time, working with you (Mark Cerny) and you bringing the state of the art technologies, we will get around that. I’m very confident that we’re working towards something completely new and that no-one has seen so far. This will be my best work so far, I’m very confident about that.”
Following a long string of controversy, Kojima left Konami last year and launched the new Kojima Productions. Since then Sony revealed that they’d partnered with his new studio on bringing his next game to life. At E3, he unveiled it to the world.
Death Stranding is an interesting game, which once again stars Norman Reedus (who was set to star in the now cancelled Silent Hills title), and is being published by Sony to launch on PC and PlayStation 4. Details about the game as well as a release date have yet to be revealed.
