So… Norman Reedus, the actor who plays main character Sam in Death Stranding, might have just casually confirmed that a sequel is in development. In an interview with Leo Edit, the Walking Dead star is incredibly blunt and to the point when asked about his work on the aforementioned Hideo Kojima project. Reedus simply says: “We just started the second one.” Oh, okay then!
Reedus continues: “It took me maybe two or three years to finish all the MoCap sessions and everything [for Death Stranding]. It takes a lot of work. And then the game came out, and it just won all these awards, and it was a huge thing, so we just started part two of that.”
Now look, maybe this is some kind of weird mistake — maybe Reedus is getting some wires crossed. It’s possible. But it’s such a matter-of-fact response that we don’t think it can be overlooked. The crazy part is that the interview in question is three days old (at the time of writing), and nobody picked up on it until now.
Death Stranding first released for PS4 back in 2019, and it was enhanced and re-released for PS5 in 2021. Enough time will have passed for Kojima and his team to lay the foundations for a sequel, so the timing does add up.
What do you make of this? Do you want a Death Stranding 2? Wonder what that would even be about in the comments section below.
