Kojima Productions has certainly surprised plenty of people with their advances in the Death Stranding development cycle. With the release date being constantly hinted at some time this year and even getting a release date leak as well. It’s clear that the game is held on high regard for a lot of gamers. In fact, it’s hard to imagine how the Decima Engine is constantly being pushed to its limits.
Mathijs de Jonge certainly will agree with us. The Horizon: Zero Dawn director also celebrated Hideo Kojima’s visit to Guerrilla’s HQ. He mentioned that – after watching the progress so far – he was left speechless.
If it wasn’t clear enough, a lot of development teams are happy with the progress on Death Stranding so far. The PlayStation 4 exclusive seems to be gearing up to become one of the greatest games of this generation.
