Hideo Kojima is working on a new concept may be related to the world of Death Stranding

Former Metal Gear Solid director Hideo Kojima is working on a new project that may be related to the world of Death Stranding. Following a highly publicized exit from publisher Konami, with whom he had worked since the mid-1980s, Kojima became a free agent for the first time in decades. He re-founded Kojima Productions as an independent studio and got to wok. The result, Death Stranding, was his first full-length non-Metal Gear directorial effort since 1994's Policenauts. Released as a PlayStation 4 console exclusive, Death Stranding received a somewhat divided critical reception, but was nonetheless praised for its unique gameplay systems and impressive motion captured performances from Hollywood talent like Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, and Lindsay Wagner.

Naturally, people are now wondering whether the legendary director is planning on making an immediate return for a Death Stranding sequel of some kind. Kojima has previously said that he'd be open to returning to the Death Stranding universe, but explained that he'd 'start from zero' if he did, seemingly indicating that a new game wouldn't continue the plot of the first.

Kojima recently scrapped a big project and is now in the planning phase of his next game - it's not clear just yet what shape that game will take, but by these concepts, it looks like it may be related to Death Stranding in some fashion.

Like with all of Hideo Kojima's work, there is much speculation as to what this new project may entail. In fact, it might not even be a video game, as Kojima has recently expressed interest in pursuing a non-interactive project. There are many conclusions one can draw from the information presented in the ResetEra post, and all of them are impossible to validate. Will Death Stranding go to space? Will it even be a video game anymore? Only time will tell.

As a video game, Death Stranding isn't necessarily for anyone, but it provides a wholly unique gameplay experience with a story that has certainly inspired discussion and debate regarding its merits and meaning. Hideo Kojima and his team created a whole world of thematic storytelling for players to explore, and many players would be open for more adventures set within The United Cities of America.
