Mads Mikkelsen, star of Death Stranding, was the last to anticipate an aspect of the upcoming game of Hideo Kojima, saying that the whole concept looks around "the collaboration between various people in the world".

Previously what he had said to GamesRadar he had already hinted that the game would have approached his players:
"The whole concept of playing the game, from what I understand, is the need for different people from different parts of the world to collaborate, which is a new level of spectacularity."

Formerly, Norman Reedus, co-star of the title, had mentioned that the game will include elements of social media and Kojima himself said he wanted to make a game that would connect his players, trying something different for the online.
