Development on Death Stranding will begin in earnest next year, according to Director Hideo Kojima.

Chatting to IGN regarding the decision to strike a collaboration between Kojima Productions and Guerrilla Games over the Decima game engine, Kojima-san noted that production will “enter full swing” in 2017, roughly aligning the new IP with a late 2018/early 2019 release date. Conjecture, of course, but be sure to drop your own predictions below.

Meanwhile, after the partnership was announced during PlayStation Experience, Hideo Kojima posted a series of enticing Tweets on Decima and how it’ll shape Death Stranding moving forward.

Death Stranding is in development as a PS4 exclusive. Below, you’ll find Kojima’s interview with IGN, wherein the Game Director discusses the game’s tentative production timeline around 08:20.
