Hideo Kojima’s DEATH STRANDING Is Skipping E3 This Year

Ever since Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima left Konami, gamers have eagerly awaited his next project, Death Stranding. So far, there haven’t been many details released about this game, although we do know that it’s an open world action title and the main character has the likeness of Norman Reedus. However, fans hoping for more intel on the game at this year’s E3 are bound to be disappointed.

Via Polygon, Kojima has confirmed on his Twitter account that Death Stranding will not be featured at E3. Kojima also reiterated his plans to personally attend E3 Coliseum panel for a one-on-one panel with Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the man who is currently attempting to adapt Metal Gear Solid as a film.

As noted by Polygon, the word “bridge” and the spiderweb imagery have previously appeared in an earlier Death Stranding teaser trailer. Guillermo del Toro’s character wore a lapel pin with a spiderweb splashed across an image of the United States, with the word “bridges” and “United Cities of America” visible on the pin as well.  This suggests an alternate world or timeline for the game. Mads Mikkelsen’s likeness and performance will also be used in the game as the lead antagonist.

While we’re disappointed that Death Stranding won’t be present at E3, the focus on the development will ultimately be a good thing. We’d love to see Death Stranding reach the heights of the MGS series, and we’re still looking forward to getting our hands on it.
