Kojima could be teasing Death Stranding sequel with a recent tweet

Video game writer/director Hideo Kojima’s recent tweets may be suggesting that a new Death Stranding title is already in the works.

Late last month, Kojima Productions founder Hideo Kojima discussed the cancellation of a major project his studio was working on but assured fans that his studio’s next title was already in its planning phase, though he was not at liberty to share any more info.

It seems the industry legend just couldn’t contain his excitement, as two of his more recent tweets seem to be hinting at a return to the Death Stranding universe.

Kojima’s Twitter posts were meant to detail his work-from-home regiments, but also included some conveniently placed references to his studio’s first video game title.

The Japanese director previously expressed interest in a Death Stranding sequel, so news of him working on one shouldn’t come as too much of surprise.

Hideo Kojima works alongside BB from Death Stranding

Hideo Kojima took to Twitter last week to let fans in on his work-from-home design process and to show off a few photos of his current workstation.

Photos of his desk weren’t the only things the Metal Gear designer put on display, as a few Death Stranding references “somehow” found their way into the shots.

Kojima’s first tweet described the artistic process between himself and Japanese artist Yoji Shinkawa, detailing how they discuss character settings, backgrounds, color schemes, etc. Correspondences usually take place via text, though e-mails and “direct discussions” are also commonplace.

The not-so-subtle Death Stranding Easter Egg here is the slightly unsettling large-sized Bridge Baby (BB) staring blankly off-screen. Fans of the game will instantly recognize the fetus as the peculiar sort of mascot of Kojima’s open-world game.

Rocking out to Kitaro

The reference in his second tweet is a little more subtle, with the writer proudly sharing his newly purchased Kitaro record.

A closer look at the sketch towards the center of the photo reveals what looks like a spaceship with a decal of the word “BRIDGES” on its side, as revealed by a ResetEra forum post, which fans can check out here.

Those who played Death Stranding will likely remember Bridges as the company that Sam—the game’s protagonist—works for.

The words “LANDING SHIP” can also be seen just right of the disk tray, which some people speculate to mean a space-oriented adventure.

While the recent tweets could very well mean a Death Stranding sequel is on the horizon, they could also mean nothing at all, as Kojima is known for just doing Kojima things. The speculations should obviously be taken with a grain of salt, though a continuation to his previous game would definitely be interesting.
