Death Stranding is not even out but, and Hideo Kojima is on the market speaking about sequels.
“The most difficult part is, when you create something new, you have to create a sequel and then a third version or it [will] not remain as a genre,” says Kojima in an interview with Gamespot. “When this game comes out there will be a lot of pros and cons, and [these elements could become the essence of the core part], but I think it’s better that I keep it going in a sequel.”
Kojima states that he is “not really sure” whether or not Death Stranding will change into a collection, however that appears to be based mostly extra on whether or not or not the monetary alternative to make it a collection is there. He definitely personally appears within the concept. He even mentions the opportunity of a “1.5 and then 2” however notes that “There are a lot of other projects that come up like TV dramas and things like that. A lot of pitches come my way.”
Let’s break this down a bit. First off, we’re nonetheless not totally positive what it’s about Death Stranding that can be so progressive that it’ll create a brand new style, and we’re actually unsure that Kojima is aware of both at this level. Much of what we have seen of the sport means that it will likely be an open-world survival recreation with stealth and horror components. While Kojima will nearly definitely lend a few of his trademark character to the undertaking, the promise of a brand new style could also be a little bit of a stretch.
The concept that Kojima might pivot to TV or one thing related following the discharge of Death Stranding is not less than as fascinating as the concept of a Death Stranding franchise. Kojima has at all times gave the impression to be within the worlds of tv and movie, however he is by no means actually crossed that line. Could he go as far as to depart video games behind for some time?
In any case, Death Stranding remains to be set to be one of the talked-about video games of 2019, and with its not too long ago confirmed “Very Easy” mode, you’ll work via it and see if for your self comparatively rapidly.
