Death Stranding lead motion capture actor Norman Reedus has teased that the game might launch early next year.
And Kojima did said himself that the game would release before 2020. He also did said the game release date would base on Akira which was set in 2019.
It’s not out of the question either. Kojima games have always taken a long time to release, but for reasons revolving around having to build game engines from scratch. Least this time around his was given a suitable game engine, so that cut a whole lot of time out of the equation. I’m really excited to see what he does with the decima engine
This is really curious. I still feel like we know so little about Death Stranding. Unless they do some kind of media blitz in the near future, I would be seriously surprised to see it released this early.
Can’t wait for another dose of why exclusives are bad
Or all the "concerned" pieces that'll pop up leading up to its release!
Don't forget the downgrade in depth analyses we have to look forward to.
Puddle watch will be in full effect.
Lack of exclusives would hurt the industries.
Exclusives are bad for everyone's health because it kills people from jealousy
Don't see why though. Not like the PS4 is that expensive, can pick up a used one for very cheap and get to playing some all time great exclusives
Just to add to my point, I honestly don't understand how you can let hatred stop you from playing a lot of amazing games. I'd have all the consoles and a gaming PC if I could afford it
seriously, you want a dose of that go visit the Marvel Ultimate Alliance comment section. You would think that Nintendo is North Korea for getting an exclusive for themselves.
Yeah but its from a third party publisher though. Death Stranding isn't.
@Dragonscale - Nintendo is publishing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, so try again.
Yeah no offense to Norman but voice actors usually don't know when a game is coming out. I'll believe it when I see it.
Game could be close to being done though. As the protagonist who’s in the whole game and more than likely doing all his own VA and motion capture, if his work is done and they’re in the polish stage odds are the game is closer to being finished than not. When it releases, that’s up to the suits. I’ve seen finished games (Gravity Rush 2) bumped the same as finished movies (Xmen: Dark Phoenix). I’m all in for an early 2019 release tho’! Maybe that’s another reason Days Gone got pushed outta Q1?
problem is mo-cap is usually done much much earlier than when the game is finished, because studio time for that is real expensive and they try to bang it out at the start
Him and Kojima seem rather close. On top of that, he is likely doing promotional work for the game, and he'd be contracted out to do so, so they'd have to let him know when it's releasing so they can prepare that for him around his schedule. If it were a random voice actor, I'd say you're probably right, although they'd be called back in to do additional voice work maybe half a year before release in a big production.
I still see this as a PS5 title, but maybe I'm wrong. It would be a a strong title coming into next gen.
It's a pretty game and I'm sure it's very possible it also gets a ps5 release but what I've seen of it so far would be perfectly in line for the end of this gen.
Definitely a PS4 title. OT: Just bring on the release date!
It looks very good, but not next gen good. What I mean by that is it's the same kind of quality we've been seeing from exclusives like Uncharted 4 and TLOU 2. Very high production value and everything, but not crazy scope and physics and stuff that you'd expect to be possible only on next gen console CPUs.
Early as in Jan? Feb? March?
march normally is the start of the fiscal year so it would be between march to august
Can't wait for Darryl in the Mountains. Seriously though, I'm glad to hear it. The fog surrounding this game is starting to become grating. I just want to see some more game play already.
this game is closer to being done than most people think. MGS5 took 5 years because kojima had to do a new engine(fox engine) now he saved so much time by using the horizon zero dawn engine
He was also put on several other projects besides MGSV during that time by Konami, so it's not like that was the only game he worked on. MGS4 took some time to release, but Kojima actually was never known for not releasing games in a timely fashion before the MGSV delays.
Nope. Days Gone is released 26 april 2019. Sony would never release 2 of their top titles one week apart. Edit: If this turns out to be the truth, maybe they postponed Days Gone from 22nd February to insert Death Stranding at that date instead, that would make more sense than May 3rd. :)
Maybe Norman forgot that the game needs testing so add another 3-4 months to it 😂
This. I can see Dreams come out (at least in some beta-form) Feb / March, Days Gone 26th April Death Stranding Summer or early fall 2019 Last Of Us Part 2 Holidays 2019/20.
Tlous 2 is confirmed next year. Didnt u see begining of show
Yeah Holidays 2019/20 meant end of next year, and that's 2019, right !??
its already playable;e and in testing and polishing phase
"Norman Reedus accidentally leaks Death Stranding will eventually come to Xbox and switch" Aww I was totally hoping for a meaningless single player Sony exclusive!
Well, yeah I guess exclusives are meaningless to people who don't own the console the game is exclusive to.
I'd be surprised if it does. I mean I keep seeing Kojima busy travelling the world taking selfies with people.
Can't wait to play this Sony exclusive day 1. Hoping for little info as the game gets closer more is shown but still keeping me in the dark.
This would be awesome if that was true.
Give production timelines, if he has 3 more mocap sessions before EOY, Holiday 2019, baby. Pumped.
