Death Stranding 2 Is Now In Works, According To Norman Reedus
Norman Reedus who acted in the first game has revealed that work has begun on a sequel to Death Stranding. The game has not been announced, but Reedus plainly told Leo Edit, “We just started the second one.”
Death Stranding sold more than 5 million copies before the release of the director’s cut, so it sure seems that the game was a huge success. Sony published the PS4 and PS5 editions, with 505 Games handling the PC release in 2020. The game is not available on the Xbox.
A picture of Reedus’ Death Stranding character, Sam, was recently added to the PlayStation Studios website banner. Some took this to believe Sony might have more in works for Death Stranding, but whether or not that’s the case stays to be seen.
Reedus said in the Leo Edit interview that it looks “maybe two or three years” to finish his motion-capture scenes for the original Death Stranding. So Death Stranding 2 might not be here anytime soon if work is just beginning now. “It was a huge thing, so we just started part two of that,” he said.
The first Death Stranding was the first in Kojima’s so-called “strand” game genre. It was also filled with big actors and celebrities like Mads Mikkelsen, Guillermo del Toro, Lea Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Troy Baker, Conan O’Brien, and others.
Reedus was originally set to star in Kojima’s new Silent Hill game, but that project didn’t go through and Death Stranding rose from the ashes. Konami’s Silent Hill series may be making a comeback, according to a leak, but Kojima and Reedus are not involved in the game.
