Today, Kojima tweeted an image of what looks like moss-covered rocks and now everyone's digging into it on the hunt for clues.

"Decima×Kojima=DS" Kojima tweeted, alongside the image.

Decima refers to the game engine Kojima is using to build Death Stranding. (Decima is a proprietary game engine developed by Horizon: Zero Dawn developer Guerrilla Games.)

Of course, the image may simply be an extreme close-up of some dirt that's in death Stranding. Yep, let's go with that.

Death Stranding is still pegged as a PlayStation 4 game, by the way, which suggests it'll come out in the next year or two. The last time we saw footage was in December 2017. Then, it looked like this:
