Hideo Kojima's action title Death Stranding has officially gone gold which means that the development is now completed and the game is ready for mass production.
While still a mystery to many players, Death Stranding is finally nearing its release date, which is coming in less than two months. Today, the game's creator Hideo Kojima announced that Death Stranding is officially gone gold and is ready to enter mass production.
Kojima shared a couple of photos with the development team, holding the Death Stranding disc on his official Twitter and you can take a look at both images below. Kojima also thanked everyone who worked on the game including Sony and Guerrilla teams.
"Death Stranding is complete and has gone gold!” Kojima Productions said in a tweet. "Hideo Kojima, the Kojima Productions team, everyone at Sony and Guerrilla, and cast members all put their heart and soul into it. Thanks for your support, we can’t wait to bring you a new A Hideo Kojima Game."
For those who are not quite familiar with the "gone gold" term, it basically means that the development is now officially completed and the game is ready to enter mass production.
Of course, this doesn't mean that the developers will now wrap it up, put beach slippers on and enjoy cocktails somewhere warm for the rest of the year. The work is far from being done and Death Stranding will surely receive many updates with bug fixes, improvements and more.
Furthermore, it's possible that Hideo Kojima and the team have some plans for major expansions or big content additions but these are yet to be confirmed so it's just a wild guess at this moment.
Earlier this month, Kojima talked about a potential sequel, saying that in order to successfully create a brand new game genre, he needs to create at least two more Death Stranding games.
Death Stranding is officially hitting the shelves on 08 November 2019 for PlayStation 4.
