Hideo Kojima is up to his old tricks again. After teasing Elle Fanning, the Metal Gear Solid creator has released another set of teasers for his next game, and this time around, it all but confirms that the previous teasers were all for Death Stranding 2.
The latest blanked-out visage Kojima released on Twitter appears to belong to Léa Seydoux, specifically, her Death Stranding 2 character, Fragile.
So, if this isn't a confirmation that Kojima will reveal Death Stranding 2 at The Game Awards, we don't know know what is.

Geoff Keighley is one of the few individuals in the gaming industry we can say is chummy with the enigmatic video game auteur. Just last year, Kojima joined Keighly at the Summer Game Fest to reveal Death Stranding Director's Cut, which added a boatload of content to one of the biggest surprise hits of the past few years. If Kojima was going to reveal one of his upcoming projects, an event hosted by Keighley would be a good start.
Having said that, Kojima isn't the only one who's teased Death Stranding 2, albeit he's more subtle and cryptic in his words. Back in May, Reedus revealed that he'd just started working on Death Stranding 2, which is the second time he's talked about the sequel to the game that fans refer to as a walking simulator.
With only hours to go before The Game Awards start, we don't have to wait too long to find out what Kojima is teasing.
Fingers crossed, Kojima will also address Overdose at the said event, which is presumed to be one of Kojima Production's upcoming games that keeps on leaking online.
Speaking of Kojima, there are rumblings that Konami is working on a remake of either the first Metal Gear Solid or Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, depending on your source. Konami won't be at The Game Awards, but you'll never know.
