After an turbulent departure from Konami to being his own boss, Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding has finally gone gold. The announcement was made today on Twitter with a picture of the team from Kojima Productions looking very happy. The second picture features the director himself with the gold master disc in hand.
The message from the team was one of excitement and maybe even a little relief.
DEATH STRANDING is complete and has gone gold!! Hideo Kojima, the Kojima Productions team, everyone at Sony and Guerrilla, cast members; all put their heart and soul into it. Thanks for your support, we can’t wait to bring you a new “A HIDEO KOJIMA GAME”. Play it on Nov 8th!! pic.twitter.com/Nj73oGG05p

This is the beginning of the end to really knowing concrete things about the game like gameplay and story. I’ve stopped watching trailers, because I don’t need to be any more confused about what Death Stranding is. As much as I like to give the game’s promotional tactics and director a hard time, I’m ready to see for myself if the hype is real.
We do know the game will release on November 8, and I’m sure it will provide hours (perhaps weeks) of discussion for critics and fans with theories from reasonable to reasonably crazy. I’m looking forward to it. If you already know that you want it, you can pre-order the game for some digital goodies, or you can splurge for a special edition PS4 Pro to show your love for the game.
Either way, it’s another great exclusive for our favorite console.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
