Legendary game developer Hideo Kojima has entered full teasing mode, and today he revealed a cryptic video of Death Stranding on Twitter.
The video appears to show footage of the game through a hand-print shape, and includes the message “build the rope.”
The “rope” is likely a reference to the ties binding people that Kojima-san has mentioned many times during the development of Death Stranding, and the creator of Metal Gear Solid has hinted in the past that he may be working on a new trailer.

While Death Stranding’s publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment won’t have a presence at E3 next month, it’s still likely that they’ll have some reveals for their upcoming heavy hitters around the show’s timeframe. That’s likely when we’ll see the new trailer.
Recently, Kojima-san talked about the creation of the game at Tribeca Film Festival, while he also made a few comments on the state of development a few weeks ago.
You can read some semi-recent impressions by Head of Marketing and Communications Aki Saito (who is the one translating in the clips above) and Reedus himself, and more by Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst.
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.
