Death Stranding creator Hideo Kojima seems to be teasing something very related to Death Stranding on his Twitter account, which could be related to Death Stranding 2 or the upcoming Death Stranding movie adaptation.

In a tweet posted last night, Kojima shared several photos of what appeared to be a motion capture (motion capture) stage with actors moving around some large prop rocks. The stage is surrounded by what looks like a giant LED wall. Used in filming The Mandalorian, but this clearly has a Death Stranding background. There you can see snowy mountains, BTs in the distance, a small campsite with multiple tents, and a completely unknown figure looming large on your left. New enemies, new allies, new bosses, strange mechs… it’s hard to say.
I’m running out of details on what’s going on here, but it’s possible. Learn a little more about what stage Kojima is supposed to be using, at least. We visited Epic Games’ The Volume stage last year to learn how it works and what’s possible, and Kojima’s stage seems to be very similar as well.
Posted by Kojima number of photograph of This technology This is the first time we’ve seen anything obviously Death Stranding related in the last few days. It has not been confirmed if this is for the upcoming Death Stranding movie Death Stranding 2, which Kojima says is “extremely involved” in its production, or for something else related to Death Stranding.
So far, little is known about Death Stranding 2, but the appearance of Fragile and older Sam Bridges was officially announced at The Game Awards 2022. At the time, Kojima said that he rewrote the entire script for the game from scratch in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hopefully, a keen-eyed detective can deduce more details about the Death Stranding-related mysteries going on in these photos…or else we’ll just have to keep waiting for Kojima’s teasing to continue.
