Cancelled Stadia-exclusive Dying Stranding sequel by no means existed, says Hideo Kojima

Regardless of earlier reviews, based on head-honcho Hideo Kojima himself, a Dying Stranding sequel unique to Google Stadia was by no means going to occur.

Again in September a report emerged claiming that sooner or later in time, a Dying Stranding sequel of some kind was in growth for the Stadia, however was in the end cancelled by Google Stadia’s common supervisor Phil Harrison as the corporate believed there wasn’t a marketplace for single participant video games any extra. Nicely, that report was fallacious by the sounds of it, as throughout the tenth episode of his Mind Construction podcast, Kojima put hypothesis to mattress (thanks, GamesRadar).

“How do you react to that?” Kojima requested hypothetically concerning the quite a few issues that gamers come to him with. “Customers ship me stuff like this immediately, like ‘phrase goes round about so and so.’ It is fixed, nearly daily, and I do not know the place the unique supply got here from, so I am unable to say a lot about it.”

Kojima famous afterward that he hadn’t ever spoken to Harrison a few Dying Stranding sequel. “The hearsay that Dying Stranding, furthermore a sequel, was within the works to be an unique title for Google is unfounded, and Phil Harrison in the end rejecting that’s fairly not possible. I’ve by no means as soon as stated something to Phil about desirous to create a Dying Stranding sequel. I do not know who pulled this info, [or] from the place.”

It is uncommon that we get one thing as blunt as this from a developer, so it is refreshing to have an precise assertion on one thing like this, even when it in the end would not matter to most people.

We do just about know {that a} Dying Stranding sequel is in growth although, as Norman Reedus actually stated as such earlier this yr, but it surely hasn’t been revealed formally simply but. It is not the one challenge Kojima Productions is engaged on both, because the additionally unconfirmed Overdose is slowly being teased by Kojima himself, with some gameplay leaking on-line earlier this week.
