Hideo Kojima dropped a new teaser for his new Kojima Productions game. The latest reveal, which comes via Kojima’s official Twitter account, invites viewers to “Start a new journey.” Accompanied by three mysterious symbols, the teases are widely rumored to be connected to an in-development Death Stranding 2.

Kojima’s tweet features three mysterious symbols, at least one of which appeared on earlier teases confirming the involvement of actress Elle Fanning. One symbol is a logo for something called the “Automated Public Assistance Company.” The second symbol was present on the Fanning teaser, and depicts a mysterious structure under an umbrella-like shape. The third symbol shows a tentacled creature pierced by harpoons. Exactly what the symbols mean is unknown, but they appear to be corporate or organizational logos of some kind.
The latest teases appear to be leading up to a reveal set for the 2022 Game Awards show. The Game Awards official Twitter account, as well as the account of creator and host Geoff Keighley, responded to Kojima’s tease with hints that more will be revealed at the show on December 8, 20222, when the show goes live.
As for the connection to Death Stranding 2, that is also unconfirmed, though actor and Death Stranding star Norman Reedus did confirm that production is under way on the game. Kojima Productions is working on at least two projects. One is likely Death Stranding 2, while another, codenamed or titled “Overdose” appears to be connected to actress Margaret Qualley (who played Mama in Death Stranding). Some footage and screenshots of project Overdose leaked in early November.
