Death Stranding (opens in new tab) is like that best friend who suddenly got into post-modern poetry during college, and only speaks in iambic riddles when you make even the simplest of requests ("Tea or coffee, Eric? It's a simple yes/no question!").
Creator Hideo Kojima is remaining as cryptic as ever when it comes to marketing the open world game, using only grand metaphor and abstract concepts to describe his latest project beyond the specific details we already know so far. But that could be about to change.
The upcoming PS4 games (opens in new tab) for 2019 and beyond
The developer is set to appear at a Tribeca Film Festival panel next month alongside the game's lead actor Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead season 9 (opens in new tab)) and host Geoff Keighley, where they will apparently discuss "pushing the boundaries of the video game medium and their latest collaboration."
Of course, the pair could be as elusive and non-descript as ever during the panel, which takes place at a yet to be disclosed time between April 24 and May 5, but the fact Tribeca's own synopsis (opens in new tab) of the talk admits that "speculation from fans and industry alike have created a deafening excitement" suggests concrete details could be revealed from the horse's mouth.
Death Stranding doesn't even have a release date yet, and while Kojima recently admitted that the game has been slightly delayed beyond its internal schedule (opens in new tab), PlayStation still needs to fill out the latter half of 2019 with more exclusives besides Days Gone (opens in new tab) and Dreams. Could we be playing Death Stranding before the year is over? Perhaps the man behind the game can confirm it later next month...
