Death Stranding Director Hideo Kojima Coming To San Diego Comic-Con

Death Stranding news coming?


Hideo Kojima's new game, Death Stranding, was a no-show at E3 2019 last week. So when will we hear about it next? We might learn more at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

The game developer posted on Twitter today to say he and Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn are coming to San Diego Comic-Con. The specifics are unknown at this point, but it could be that the pair are appearing on some kind of joint panel where they talk about each other's projects.

Now Playing: Death Stranding Release Date Trailer

The full San Diego Comic-Con schedule hasn't been posted yet, so there is no word yet on if the Kojima/Winding Refn panel is officially part of the show or connected to it in some other manner. The show runs July 18-21 in San Diego.

Winding Refn is the director of several Ryan Gosling movies including Drive and Only God Forgives. He appears in Death Stranding as the character "Heartman."

He and Kojima are friends. Kojima appears in Winding Refn's new Amazon show, Too Old To Die Young, in which he cuts off a man's finger with a giant sword.

Winding Refn is just the latest celebrity to feature in Death Stranding. The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus plays the main character, while Lea Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Mads Mikkelsen, Margaret Qualley, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Troy Baker all have roles in the game.

Death Stranding releases for PS4 on November 8.
