Is there a release date for Death Stranding 2?

Unfortunately there is currently no release date for Death Stranding 2and Kojima Productions has not yet committed to a release window.

The original Death Stranding had a notoriously long development cycle, so don’t be surprised if the sequel isn’t coming until 2024 at the earliest, possibly as late as 2025.

Death Stranding 2 platforms

According to the first Death Stranding 2 trailer, the game is currently only scheduled to release on PlayStation5. The first installment was a popular Sony exclusive, so it’s no surprise that it’s doubling down on the latest hardware, but it does mean those still on PS4 might miss out.

The original also made its way to PC a year after its release, so chances are Death Stranding 2 will follow the same pattern.

Death Stranding 2 Story

Sam Bridges in Death Stranding 2Kojima Productions

Nomas Reedus will reprise his role as Sam Bridges in Death Stranding 2.

Many fans may be surprised after the events of the 2019 game, but Death Stranding 2 appears to be a direct sequel taking place years later. The only trailer so far focuses heavily on Fragile, who has been unwittingly recruited by a mysterious faction known as Drawbridge.

An older and grayer Sam Bridges, again played by Norman Reedus, will also return, likely as the sequel’s protagonist.

As you’d expect from a Kojima game, there are plenty of other outlandish story elements, including baby octopuses, but it’s far too early to determine what much of it means.
