Insider: Death Stranding Uses Sony First Party Engine, The Last of Us 2 Further Teased
shinobi602 hints at upcoming potential reveals.
Industry insider shinobi602 is back at it again, this time offering more teases of what’s to come with Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding (exclusive on consoles to PS4) and Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2 whose announcement is apparently coming soon.
It was noted earlier that Death Stranding wouldn’t be using Sucker Punch’s engine and when asked on Twitter if KojiPro was using an entirely new engine, shinobi602 responded, “It’s not.”
He further added that people will be surprised that it wasn’t something regular like Unreal Engine 4. The final tease came when he confirmed that it’s actually an engine from Sony first party studio that’s being used. Which one? That’s anyone’s guess at this point.
As for The Last of Us 2, shinobi602 dropped a vague statement about how this year’s PlayStation Experience would be “better than The last 2 PSX shows”. Notice the odd capitalization? So did another user and shinobi602 chose to stay silent on the matter (discounting the GIF posted). It’s not exactly a tease for The Last of Us 2 but such is the nature of teases.
Will we see the Naughty Dog sequel at PSX this Saturday? Will Hideo Kojima reveal exactly what engine Death Stranding is using? Stay tuned for more updates in the coming days to find out.
