He explained that, while it does represent an idea he’s had, it doesn’t necessarily mean a Death Stranding sequel is in the works: “I’m always thinking about ideas as I’m working on games. These aren’t major plans, but just fragments of new ideas. I think about these ideas myself, and then I explain them to other people, in order to get opinions about them. For example, I’ll ask Yoji [Shinkawa] if he is sitting next to me.
“Oftentimes, he’ll create some drawings based on my ideas, and show them to me a few days later. The image I tweeted recently was one of these drawings.”
Of course, this doesn’t mean Kojima isn’t working on Death Stranding 2 – after all, we know that Kojima Productions has begun work on a new project, and Kojima has discussed his ideas for a sequel before – but it may also mean that this vehicle concept wouldn’t necessarily be a part of it. Equally, Kojima recently said that a “big project” had been scrapped at Kojima Productions, which potentially could be that version of a sequel.
