Can Death Stranding be the new Metal Gear?

PT or Metal Gear Solid?
We were all excited to see Hideo Kojima’s return to E3 and even more excited to see his first title under Kojima Production: Death Stranding. The trailer shows a beach littered with dead crabs and sea creatures. Then, we are introduced to a naked Norman Reedus and a baby on an umbilical cord (Kojima’s self representation of breaking away from Konami?)  We hoped for a Silent Hills resurrection (you know, because of Norman Reedus and the sink baby from P.T.) but I think Kojima might be going the way of Keiji Inafume (Mega Man) and Koji Igarashi (Castlevania). Death Stranding hints at another resurrection of Metal Gear Solid –without the MGS title.  The credit screen features, along with Hideo Kojima, MGS script writer: Hitori Nojima and MGS producer Kenichiro Imaizumi.

Will Death Stranding be another version of MGS, or do you think Kojima will make a game that goes in an entirely different direction? Let us know what you think in the comments!
