Death Stranding is a game for whom two trailers have been released and still, nothing solid is known about the game. While Hideo Kojima himself is not revealing what the game exactly is about but has confirmed it that at this point Death Stranding is not a VR title.

Speaking during RTX Sydney (via DualShockers) Hideo Kojima discussed different elements of the upcoming game and was asked if the game will support VR. According to Hideo Kojima, ““At this time, Death Stranding is not a VR game”.

Recently, Kojima revealed that why he chose the game after leaving Konami. According to Kojima, Death Stranding was his best idea for the gaming market at that time.

come up with new ideas every day and they all override each other. I had several at the front of my mind, and we ended up choosing the game that – first of all – would be best for the market, and the one we were most enthusiastic about making. That was Death Stranding.

Kojima’s upcoming game will be using a modified version of DECIMA game engine which is developed by Guerrilla Games. According to Kojima himself, DECIMA is a fantastic game engine and the game will be photorealistic when it releases.

Decima is a fantastic render engine, but there’s no point if we create the same world as Guerrilla Games. Horizon: Zero Dawn has a fantastic artistic vision, but we are more aiming for a photorealistic style.

Death Stranding is an upcoming action video game in development at Kojima Productions and is expected to launch in 2018 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
