Death Stranding 2: Latest News on Release Date, Gameplay, and More

Death Stranding offered up a unique melange of gameplay systems and storytelling, and has attracted a cult following in the years since its release. Now, a sequel is on the way from Kojima Productions called Death Stranding 2.

Here are all the key details, including hints about its story, the trailers so far released, and more.

  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Engine: Decima
  • Genres: Action game, Adventure game
  • Platform: PlayStation 5


Death Stranding’s gameplay was divisive on release, meditative and careful in the eyes of some, but confusing and a little frustrating for others.

If its sequel follows the same template, we’ll again be moving cargo across long distances using a variety of traversal options, from on-foot hiking to vehicles.

Given the theme of the first game was all about making new connections between locations you might think we’ll be doing more of the same, but the first trailer for Death Stranding 2 is ominous.

Death Stranding 1

If you have not played the first death stranding yet, we suggest you a copy for yourself to try out the game. With mixed but mostly good reviews, it is definitely a game to try if you don’t have anything else to play.

Story of Death Stranding 2

The first Death Stranding had a plot that could be pretty hard to follow and ended with some ambiguities.

Stop reading if you’re keen to avoid learning about what happened, as we’ll have to touch on spoiler territory here! If you’d rather, you could also wait for the recently announced movie adaption of the first game.

At the end of the last game, our hero Sam went off-grid to live with his BB, now named Louise, while allies like Die Hardman and Fragile found new purposes.

Release Date for Death Stranding 2

The announcement of Death Stranding 2 is major news, but it didn’t come with any attached release date.

We don’t even have a window, and we would guess that if the game was headed for 2023 this fact would have been confirmed.

We’d therefore feel fairly safe in predicting that we won’t be playing Death Stranding 2 until 2024 at the earliest, with 2025 a real likelihood.


Death Stranding 2 was announced at The Game Awards in December 2022 with a glitzy trailer and an appearance from Hideo Kojima himself.


Another big part of Death Stranding 2’s announcement is that it’s going to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive – at least at launch, anyway.

We’d imagine that it will come to PC more quickly than the long process required for the first Death Stranding, but for now it’s only the PlayStation 5 that has been confirmed as a launch platform for the game.
