Sony is giving Hideo Kojima “a lot of freedom” for Death Stranding

Death Stranding (2)

What is Death Stranding? An anagram for Hated Ring Strand? A trailer for Trainspotting 2? The Whaling Dead? It looks weird as f*** right now, with some internet theories pointing towards creator Hideo Kojima working on a game that makes players Gameblog France, VG 247 and Google Translate.

I have great relationship with Sony,[which allows] me to concentrate on the creative part. Working with another partner, [they] would surely ask for more time on ancillary tasks. We would have taken time for contracts, and I do not think that things would have been as quick. Working with Sony also brought me a lot of freedom, and support has been exceptional.

Fun fact: Sony didn’t even need Kojima to pitch them an idea. They just wanted him hanging around, doing what he does best: Making people wonder what Norman Reedus is up to Making games:

With Sony, of course I explained to them my approach, but they immediately said: ‘Go ahead, do what you gotta do.’ They offer me their trust. All the energy you need to put in the preparation of a project, I was able to focus on creating. This makes a real difference.

I’m still trying to figure out what the mad developer is up to. So far, I’ve calculated that Death Stranding is a sequel to a throwaway scene from Kung Pow: Enter The Fist.

Definitely that.
