It looks like Sony Interactive Entertainment and Kojima Productions is preparing for a marketing push for the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Stranding of death, prompting some to believe that an announcement of the release date could be imminent. More specifically, recently Hideo Kojima met the marketing team for PlayStation, as well as Jim Ryan, the boss of the PlayStation, who has fans who cross their fingers, which means we rounded up the last turn in the development of the game .
This week seems to have been a busy week for Kojima, who, in addition to his normal studio management duties, was visited by new PlayStation boss Jim Ryan, vice president of marketing Asad Qizilbash, and another member of The Marketing Team by Sony.

But that's not all, Kojima also met PlayStation's David Bull, which makes Global Brand Marketing for PlayStation, and which is helping to run marketing for Stranding of death. Indeed, apparently Bull was at Kojima Productions for two weeks, where he worked with Kojima on what was presumably marketing for the game.

All this combined seems to suggest that Sony is working for the marketing push for Stranding of deathand if there is a marketing push, there will be an announcement of the release date. And if there is an announcement of the release date, then you will assume that the game will come this year.
Unfortunately, all this is just speculation from the tweets above. Also, as you may know, Kojima Productions had studio guests to watch the game and go out for a while now, so it's not new. But there have never been so many executives (especially marketing variety) in a week.
However, if a speculation has hit the mark, who knows, but it is clear that at least you are working on marketing for the exclusive PS4. And when you look at Sony's autumn window, it's empty at the moment. So unless Tsushima ghost or The Last of Us Part II it is expected to be released by the end of the year, so it is possible that the window will be reserved Stranding of death.
Stranding of death is under development for PS4 and is currently not a release date. For more coverage on the long-awaited game from Metal Gear Solid creator, click here.
