State of Play Speculation Rises After Death Stranding 2 Trailer Is Teased

Is Death Stranding 2 Making an Appearance at State of Play?

Fans of Death Stranding 2 may not have to wait much longer for some exciting news. A recent post from Hideo Kojima’s assistant, Ayako (Touchy!), on X (formerly Twitter) has sparked speculation about a possible State of Play announcement.

Keen-eyed Reddit users noticed that Kojima’s computer screen in the picture included the words “State of Play” followed by a year and “trailer_DS2”. While it hasn’t been too long since the last State of Play, there’s still a chance that we might see another one before the year ends. And if that happens, it’s reasonable to expect a new Death Stranding 2 trailer or gameplay reveal.

The last State of Play, which took place less than two weeks ago, had some exciting announcements. PlayStation fans were treated to the news of Roblox coming to the platform, Bennett Foddy’s Baby Steps, the Separate Ways DLC for Resident Evil 4, and footage of the PSVR2 mode. Additionally, there was gameplay footage of Spider-Man 2, more details on the exclusive Helldivers 2, and a proper look at Ubisoft’s Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Last December, Death Stranding 2 was unveiled at The Game Awards. The trailer showcased the return of Norman Reedus and Lea Seydoux as Sam and Fragile from the original game, along with the introduction of an intriguing new antagonist.
