Sony Interactive Entertainment and Kojima Productions’ action game, Death Stranding 2: On The Beach, is roughly a year away from release, as the game’s English voice acting and motion capture sessions have been completed.

During the second episode of NHK’s Radio show Hideraj Infinity (via), Kojima Productions game director Hideo Kojima shared an update on the development of Death Stranding 2: On the Beach and its possible release window. He mentioned that the actors have finished recording and filming, implying that both motion capture and voice acting sessions have been completed.

Furthermore, Kojima shared his thoughts on the State of Play trailer for Death Stranding: On the Beach. He mentioned the differences as a sequel, the elements that have been retained from the previous title, the connections between characters, the addition of new characters, and other aspects such as gameplay, themes, and visuals.

Going by the game director’s rough estimate of about a year, it would appear that Death Stranding 2 will launch sometime during the second quarter of 2025. Episode 2 of Hideraj Infinity is being streamed for free until May 25, 2024 on NHK Radio.

Previously, during an episode of HideoTube on the official Kojima Productions YouTube channel, the game director had revealed that the State of Play trailer for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach was captured on PS5, and he believes that the game’s graphics will improve even further by launch. He mentioned that its assets were ready, and that the development team just needed to “construct” them. He also shared some additional details regarding the gameplay and features, such as Sam now having the ability to remove his backpack for lighter movement and combat.
