Death Stranding Release Window Announced: Before 2020, Akira

Death Stranding RELEASE DATE

Kojima Productions has finally revealed a rough Death Stranding release window, and the company’s official Twitter page has said that the game will be releasing sometime before the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, and before the live-action Akira remake would come out, confirming that Hideo Kojima’s latest brainchild will come out some time in the next four years.

The tweet, which can be found on their official Twitter page, came just after another one that said that the game did have a release date, because how else could they set the game’s budget? Previously the game, which debuted at the Playstation conference at this year’s E3, had no set release date, only a rough estimate from Kojima that said the game was a long way off.

The Death Stranding release window being a long way off isn’t really that surprising, especially if you’re used to how Hideo Kojima works. All of his Metal Gear Solid games came out multiple years apart, with his last game before he was fired from Konami (Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain) coming out back in 2015. This is seven years after the last Metal Gear game, which came out in 2008.

Four years is actually not that bad for a Hideo Kojima game, especially since he doesn’t have to worry about anyone stepping on his toes now that he’s away from Konami and instead partnered up with the much more accommodating Sony.

We still have no idea of what the game will be about, but hopefully somewhere in the next few years of the Death Stranding release window Kojima will show us some more of the game so that we can maybe finally get some context for exactly what the heck was happening in the game’s E3 reveal trailer.

In the meantime, we just have to wait for the Olympics.
