Even though Kojima Productions released a new trailer for Death Stranding, we still don’t know what’s really going on with this game. Why is the gigantic creature in the trailer so angry? Where do those beasts come from? What genre is Death Stranding?
A lot of things is still unknown for this. All we know is that Hideo Kojima promised to develop a PS4 exclusive game into a compelling franchise. And that is more likely to be Death Stranding.
I will be taking on a new challenge by establishing my own independent studio, and I am thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with PlayStation, who I have continued to work with all these past years,” he said back in December 2015. “I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise.
Let us see how the community reacts to the new mysterious trailer for Death Stranding.

You’re not meant to understand the latest #DeathStranding trailer… in fact I’m pretty sure once you beat the entire game you still won’t understand any of it but that’s what I like about it.

All these Fortnite kids being so confused about #DEATHSTRANDING is kinda funny. I don't know much about DS either, but you see that's the good thing! It's how games used to release. Now players want to know too much before a game releases.

The Man in the Golden Mask makes us think to Nyarlathotep, another lovecraftian Great One. He is described as a "tall, swarthy man" who resembles an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. He is the messenger, the heart and the soul of the Other Gods. #DeathStranding pic.twitter.com/DPLwxZhBti

That is @Sony motto when it comes to Creative Freedom.
