The mystery surrounding Death Stranding's engine has finally been revealed: it'll run on Guerrilla Games' proprietary software. The tech, which is also being used for Horizon: Zero Dawn, has now been given an official name: Decima. It's the latest version of the engine that previously powered the Killzone games.
This isn't the first time that Guerrilla Games' tech has been licensed out: it was also used for Until Dawn. The naming of the engine, along with it becoming a little more product-focused, suggests that more of Sony's first-party projects may share the engine moving forwards, however.
