Death Stranding 2, that's why Kojima rewrote the plot during the Covid

Death Stranding 2

During The Game Award 2022, one of the titles that most exalted viewers was undoubtedly Death Stranding 2. The sequel to the dystopian future conceived by Hideo Kojima was shown in a long trailer that was able to introduce many of the elements that we will see in the next work of the visionary author. However, one of the concerns of the Japanese game designer is related to his ability to anticipate the future with his works.

Precisely because of the themes of extreme confinement and solitude dealt with in the first chapter, in fact, the world described by Kojima and his Kojima Productions immediately made us think of the pandemic in which we found ourselves during the last two years. Precisely for this reason, the author, despite the fact that the plot of Death Stranding 2 had already been largely completed, decided to rewrite it in the Covid period.

The author, in fact, told Geoff Keighley's microphones that he no longer wanted to "predict the future". For this reason, Kojima would have decided to rewrite the plot of Death Stranding 2. It is still very early to have a clear vision of what the narration of this new chapter will be, however, the trailer focuses mainly on the figure of BB and Fragile , escaping from one of the underground bases we're familiar with from the first Death Stranding (the Director's Cut of which you can buy on Amazon). We have seen many familiar faces in addition to what, presumably, will be the villain of the second chapter.

Kojima concluded by stating that the Death Stranding 2 trailer hides many elements intended for viewer analysis. The author has, in fact, expressed the wish that everyone should linger in the search for these details and discuss them with each other. The game does not yet have a release date but it is already one of the most anticipated titles of the near future and we are sure that Kojima will be able to keep up the hype of the fans around his new effort.
