If this comes out early 2019, Mr Toffee will eat a hat on livestream.
Many of you are wondering about Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding game, a title which features babies powering folks like Mads Mikkelsen, stealth, and probably some courier work. I’m just as lost as most of you, in other words.
Thank goodness there’s some development going on with the title, as Hideo Kojima visited Killzone/Horizon: Zero Dawn makers Guerilla Games to show off a build of Death Stranding. This is Kojima’s way of saying thanks to Guerilla Games three years ago when they gave him a copy of the company’s DecimaEngine to help bring his vision to life; the same custom game engine that powered Horizon: Zero Dawn.
This was documented on Guerilla founder Hermen Hulst’s Twitter feed:
Three years ago we gave @KojiPro2015_EN a copy of our @DecimaEngine in this box. Today @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN came back to @Guerrilla to show us the incredible things he’s making with it in #DeathStranding. So impressed! pic.twitter.com/8dLpdIh1bI

In related news, Kojima Productions head of marketing and communications Aki Saito said that there will be new information on the game coming soon this quarter. All you have to do is bump up his Twitter social media count to 30k and beyond.
As of right now, his follower count is 18.8k at this time of writing. So hop to it, fanboys!
Thanks to all of you, I’m almost gonna hit 10K followers! I might think of a special info tweet…something I was surprised about, that you will enjoy! If you like, how about one after 20K…30K…?! pic.twitter.com/HHdmp1PlLC

Isn’t it nice to see developers getting along? Why not let bygones be bygones, Konami?
