'Death Stranding' Release Announced, Might Feature Female Protagonist

Death Stranding has so far proved to be somewhat of a paradox for attracted gamers, and it's obvious on the 'why'. Acclaimed developer Hideo Kojima's latest title has resulted in speculations and theories over the game's teaser trailer. Even the title's meaning is still a mystery.

However, Kojima fans now have something more to hold on to as the game now has a release window, GameRant reports.

At the Tokyo Game Show 2016 (TGS 2016) on a Q&A session, Kojima still kept things mysterious by expressing that the game would be out before the Tokyo Olympic Games, just like that, no specific date, just a hint that the game will arrive on or before summer 2020.

The release window got a bit more defined when a Tweet also hinted that it will be out before the anime Akira comes out. Fans of the said manga classic know that Akira scheduled in 2019, so (insert Sherlock Holmes impression here) that, my dear, Watson, will put a release date somewhere in between 2018 and 2019. A 3 to 4 year development cycle might seem like a short amount of time for such a big project, it is still okay to assume that it will come out on time. It is reported that it will be handled by a 3rd party engine cutting short the hug timeline. As of this writing, the best bet would still be the dates mentioned by Holmes above. Great news for female gamers! This is not all Kojima announced at TGS 2016, the developer also hinted on Twitter that the game might get a female protagonist by asking its followers who will play the heroine part.
