Death Stranding 2 was revealed at The Game Awards 2022 and is set to follow on from what we think is one of the best PS4 games ever. While we’ve yet to receive concrete details relating to the Death Stranding 2 release date, we do know its main cast and the fact that its story was recently completely rewritten.
A reveal trailer for Death Stranding 2 is also available for Kojima fans to pick apart. In it, we see returning characters Fragile and Sam ‘Porter’ Bridges – though not exactly how we last left them. There are new villains in the mix, and some very beautiful visuals, making Death Stranding 2 one of the most exciting upcoming PS5 exclusives we have on the calendar.
Here’s what we know about Death Stranding 2 so far, including a look at the confirmed platforms, the initial trailer, and all of the latest news. As more details come to light, no doubt drip-fed over the next year or so, we’ll be sure to update this page.
Death Stranding 2 – cut to the chase

- When is it coming out? TBC
- What can I play it on? PS5
- Who’s making it? Kojima Productions
Death Stranding 2 platforms
Death Stranding 2 is currently only confirmed for PS5. Death Stranding, one of the best PS5 exclusives you can play right now, actually only originally launched on PS4. It was originally published by Sony for PlayStation 4, before later seeing a PC version later on, published by 505 Games. It’s possible that a similar thing could happen with Death Stranding 2, but, for now, it’s only confirmed as a PS5 exclusive.
Death Stranding 2 trailer
There’s only been one Death Stranding 2 trailer released so far. It’s four minutes of classic Kojima misdirection, with plenty of big names thrown in. Check it out below:
In terms of what it all means… well, the Death Stranding 2 reveal trailer definitely raises more questions than answers. For one, Sam ‘Porter’ Bridges is grey now, and Fragile appears to be cured. Not only that, but she has a baby, which she later fails to protect from unknown enemies. There’s a creepy-looking BB, a giant ship rising from tar, as well as a new villain wearing a very familiar red mask. We’ll have to wait and see how it all pays off and develops into a fuller narrative.
It could be a while before we see more about Death Stranding 2. Until then, it’s worth keeping an eye on the official PlayStation YouTube channel for new trailer drops.
