Hideo Kojima, Norman Reedus to Hold Death Stranding Talk at Tribeca Games

Tribeca today announced that Hideo Kojima and Norman Reedus would be talking about the highly anticipated Death Stranding at Tribeca Games next month.

The Metal Gear Solid creator’s project has been shrouded in mystery, with Reedus playing the role of main protagonist Sam Bridges.

According to Tribeca’s website, the duo will be speaking about “pushing the boundaries of the video game medium and talk about how their relationship has established over working on the title together.”

Geoff Keighley, who is the host of The Game Awards, will moderate the Japanese developer and The Walking Dead star’s talk.

Kojima and Reedus’ session will be held on April 25 at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York City.

Earlier this year, the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain director showed off his action title during a trip to Guerrilla Games, which uses the same Decima engine as the first-party developer’s Killzone Shadow Fall and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Hermen Hulst, the managing director at Guerrilla Games, said that the Kojima Productions founder was doing “incredible things” with the engine.

While a release date has not been revealed, Kojima admitted earlier this month that development on his first post-Metal Gear Solid title had fallen slightly behind schedule.

“Many studios lag behind their planned release date, and Death Stranding is slightly behind our initial plan, but it is not too far behind,” he told J-Wave (thanks to a translation from Siliconera).

Starring Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Troy Baker, Lindsay Wagner, Emily O’Brien and Tommie Earl Jenkins, Death Stranding will launch on PlayStation 4.
