Updated “Death Stranding” spoilers may be right around the corner, specifically upon the arrival of the Tribeca Games Festival on April 29. Whether it be spoilers or new updates, there is something awaiting fans of the game at the upcoming Festival, if the announcement made by Kojima Productions isn’t official enough. The company’s Twitter account recently informed fans that its head honcho, Hideo Kojima himself, will be present at the event. Thus, fans are keeping their eyes peeled for any updates regarding Kojima’s upcoming project.

Though there is no confirmation regarding the prospect of Kojima discussing his new game, fans remain hopeful as they continue to speculate on what Kojima’s appearance at the Tribeca Games Festival 2017 might signify for the community. Some netizens are keeping their fingers crossed for a new trailer, while others are eyeing new announcements on the game’s cast, especially with several rumours surrounding the title as of late.

Previously, there were talks of “La La Land” actress Emma Stone joining the cast. This was due to a supposed leak of what appeared to be Stone’s appearance in the game. The speculation of such had only been further reinforced by a post made by Kojima on Twitter, in which vinyls of both his upcoming game and Stone’s “La La Land” were pictured together. However, such rumours were later debunked when it was revealed that the image in question that showed Stone was not the actress after all. As it turned out, the picture was from YouTube star Glam&Gore who made a makeup tutorial on a look similar to that sported by Mads Mikkelsen’s character in the game.

Further rumours on the Kojima title and its cast did not cease after that, as new discussions — this time involving actress Stefanie Joosten — had surfaced after the star's appearance at a recent event in which one fan inquired as to whether or not she would be involved in “Death Stranding.” Joosten’s refusal to comment had only fuelled further speculations on her involvement in the upcoming video game, especially considering the fact that she had already previously worked with Kojima once before with 2015’s “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” in which she portrayed the character called Quiet.

Fans can only wait with bated breath on what Kojima has in store at the Tribeca Games Festival. For those unable to attend the event, it can be viewed online via livestream here.
