With Death Stranding now just a little over three months away from release, development on the game will probably be at its busiest right now in its entire three year period. Taking to Twitter, director Hideo Kojima recently spoke about the game, while also providing a brief development update.
Death Stranding is, in Kojima’s words, “still in crunch time of development”- which makes sense, since with three months left before the game’s release, the entire development team will probably be working extra hard to make sure the game is content-complete, and that said content is actually working as intended. On top of that, knowing Kojima and his nature as an obsessive perfectionist, we can probably expect it to continue being in “crunch time” for a while. We just hope this doesn’t mean the bad sort of crunch.
In his tweet, Kojima also hyped up the game itself, saying that it is something that has “never existed before” in various regards, from the gameplay, to the world’s atmosphere, to the visuals. This, of course, is something that he has suggested earlier as well (as have others).
Death Stranding is out on November 8 exclusively for the PS4. Check out its latest trailer, going into detail about the character known as Heartman, through here.
