It will star American actor Norman Reedus, who serves as the basis for the main protagonist. It was officially announced at Sony’s E3 2016 conference in June of that year.
Kojima announced the game at Sony’s conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2016 through a trailer, using the song “I’ll Keep Coming” by the Icelandic band Low Roar.
