Legendary Metal Gear Solid creator loves to tease, and considering the secrecy surrounding his upcoming new game Death Stranding, teasing is the name of the game.
Today he did it again, posting a picture of a monitor showing the “Death Stranding” logo.
You can see it below.

The logo itself wouldn’t be enough to guess what Kojima-san is teasing, but we can see the icons on the taskbar. The active one is Adobe Premier, displayed alongside After Effects. This means that he is indeed working on a video, likely a trailer for an upcoming new reveal of the game.
Interestingly, there is a small mystery hidden within this story: Kojima-san initially tweeted the image below, and then deleted the tweet and posted a slightly altered image. To be more precise, the left part of the screen was cut, likely to hide the duration of the video, which unfortunately is blurry anyway.
Luckily, I had already saved it before he deleted it, so you can enjoy speculating on what Kojima-san was trying to hide. To see the image in its original resolution, you can left-click on it and then select “open image in new tab.”
Just a few days ago, he mentioned at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York that a new reveal would be coming “in a month or so, maybe.” He might be working precisely on that.
If you want to know more about Death Stranding, Kojima-san is currently assembling its parts and testing the gameplay on PS4. He also made a few comments on the state of development a few weeks ago.
For now, we know that Death Stranding is coming to PS4, and recently Kojima-san himself possibly teased a 2019 release. That being said, it was a rather vague tease and it could have meant something else.
