Death Stranding 2 Confirmed By Norman Reedus
Speaking during an interview with Leo Edit, Norman Reedus confirmed the existence of a sequel to Death Stranding. He mentioned that work on the second game just started recently.
“Hey, there’s a guy named Hideo Kojima, he’s going to call you, just say yes,” Guillermo Del Toro, who gave Reedus his first movie, said. “Stop being an asshole, just say yes.” Reedus was in San Diego at the time, and Kojima came with a large group of people to show him a demo of what he was working on. Reedus was utterly swept away by what Kojima showed him, and he signed up for the project. He said he was completely blow away by what he had seen.
Reedus finished all of the MoCap sessions in around two or three years. It took a significant amount of effort on his part. He acknowledged that the game was well-received, winning lots of accolades. He said it was a tremendous deal, and as a result, work on Death Stranding 2 has now begun. Reedus is expected to reprise his role as Freelance courier Sam Porter Bridges.
For the uninitiated, Death Stranding is an action game developed by Kojima Productions. It’s Hideo Kojima’s and Kojima Productions’ first game after their departure from Konami in 2015. Sony Interactive Entertainment published the game for the PlayStation 4 in November 2019 and 505 Games did the same for PC in July 2020. In September 2021, a director’s cut version was released for the PlayStation 5, followed by a PC release in March 2022.
Following a cataclysmic occurrence that led harmful animals to wander the Earth, the game is set in the United States. Sam Porter Bridges (Norman Reedus) is a courier entrusted with bringing supplies to faraway colonies and reuniting them via a wireless communications network. Along with Reedus, the game stars Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Troy Baker, Tommie Earl Jenkins, and Lindsay Wagner, as well as supporting characters based on film directors Guillermo del Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn.
