Hideo Kojima’s long-awaited Death Stranding will be released in 2019 - at least, according to Best Buy. Death Stranding is a game that followed in the aftermath of Kojima’s somewhat bitter breakup with longtime publisher Konami. It didn’t take long for Sony to snatch up the auteur following his exit, and they soon put him to work on the PlayStation 4 exclusive. Death Stranding also serves as a reunion between Kojima, Norman Reedus and Guillermo del Toro after all three men collaborated on the canceled sequel Silent Hills. While numerous trailers have hinted at Death Stranding’s plot and gameplay, there’s still much that isn’t known about the title. It appears to be a third person adventure where Sam (Reedus) has to traverse a sprawling post-apocalyptic landscape, while avoiding shadowy threats. Reedus is also joined in the cast by Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner, who revealed it took Kojima over three hours to explain the game’s plot to her. She also stated the story moved her to tears.

Now an image discovered on Reddit (via Wccftech) from a Best Buy states the game is coming 2019. That said, a look at Best Buy’s website shows the release date as the last day of 2019, meaning they could just be estimating the game will be out this year.
