Death Stranding 2, the highly anticipated title from Kojima Productions, made a significant appearance at the PlayStation State of Play event, exceeding expectations with its showcased content.
The game has received the already expected release window of 2025, and a lot of news has begun to pour in. Recently, Hideo Kojima shared more information on this sequel, stating that its graphics will advance further as development continues.
Why it matters: Death Stranding quickly rose to popularity upon release and received praise from both fans and critics, which is why Death Stranding 2 has been the target of intense anticipation.

“I think it(the graphics) will advance even further.”
Death Stranding 2 already seems like it is going to set a new standard for visuals upon release, but Kojima’s statement has made fans even more excited.

The director further disclosed that the State of Play trailer was captured on the PS5 and provided additional details about the game’s storyline, elaborating on a few of the mysteries from the footage.
Additionally, Hideo Kojima mentioned that Sam would have the ability to remove his backpack for enhanced mobility and combat in the sequel.
Death Stranding 2 took center stage during the recent PlayStation Showcase, offering nearly 10 minutes of gameplay footage. The sequel appears to be a significant improvement over its predecessor.
With promising features and the return of famous actors like Norman Reedus, Death Stranding 2 is shaping up to be an outstanding sequel. Along with millions of fans, we are eagerly anticipating another great adventure from the studio.
