Death Stranding 2 Gets Exciting Update from Kojima

Hideo Kojima recently gave an exciting update for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, revealing that filming and voice recording has been completed for the upcoming sequel. Death Stranding 2 was first shown off during The Game Awards 2022 with a cryptic teaser of an older Sam Porter Bridges and plenty of surreal imagery.

A few years later, fans were greeted with a longer Death Stranding 2 story trailer that detailed Sam and Fragile’s new mission to reconnect their post-apocalyptic world, just like they did for the United Cities of America in the first game.The Death Stranding 2 story trailer also provided an updated release window of 2025, and since then, small snippets of information have been emerging from the shadows.

At the beginning of 2024, Hideo Kojima noted that he and his production team would be developing Death Stranding 2 and the Xbox-exclusive horror title OD simultaneously throughout the year and that Japanese voice recordings for the latter would soon begin. About a month later, the ever-enigmatic Kojima confirmed that Death Stranding 2 is moving away from the former United States setting of the first game, something that was hinted at in the trailer.

Hideo Kojima recently spoke again about Death Stranding 2 on his NHK radio show “Hideo Kojima’s Radio: Infinity” earlier this month. As reported by Famitsu (via Automaton Media), Kojima said that the development team has finished shooting and recording with Death Stranding 2’s cast, though he didn’t specify if this was for the English or Japanese version. Next comes an “adjustment phase,” in which the developers will work on adjusting gameplay and visual elements. According to Kojima, this will take about a year to complete.
