- 67 of 120 Kojima studio employees worked at Konami

- in development besides Guerrilla games (Killzone, Horizon Zero Dawn), participated Insomniac (Spider-Man, Ratchet & Clank) and Sony bend (Syphon Filter, Days Gone).
By the way, Jeff Keely launched a broadcast called "Countdown to the release of Death Stranding", where Hideo Kojima and other developers talk about the production of the project. During the broadcast, actors will also appear in the frame, including Norman Reedus (Sam) and Tommy Earl Jenkins (Dayhartman).
More journalists Gamespot compared the trailers and cutscenes of Death Stranding.
