Though Death Stranding was met with a divisive launch, the game has since gotten more appreciation over time. What’s interesting is, we could be looking at more adventures from the world of Sam Bridges.
In an interview with Leo, Death Stranding star Norman Reedus has seemingly confirmed that work has already begun on the sequel to DS. When it was mentioned that he worked on the game, Reedus replied, “We just started the second one.”
We don’t know how far into development the sequel has gone, but Reedus does describe his work on the first game:
“It took me maybe two or three years to finish all the MoCap sessions and everything. 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.”
Officially Kojima Productions hasn’t made any official announcement when it comes to Death Stranding 2, but with Reedus’ interview already making the rounds online, game director Hideo Kojima himself has shared this on this Twitter:
We don’t know when we’re going to get an official announcement for the Death Stranding sequel, but hopefully KojiPro will be ready for some kind of reveal within the year. Though the narrative of the first game took a lot of digesting for fans, I’m hoping that the sequel manages to work out any kinks from the first game.
From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying open world action adventure for PS4, starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner.
In the near future, mysterious explosions have rocked the globe, setting off a series of supernatural events known as the Death Stranding. With otherworldly creatures plaguing the landscape, and mass extinction imminent, it’s up to Sam Porter Bridges to travel across the ravaged wasteland and save humanity from impending annihilation.
Death Stranding is now available for PS4, PS5, and PC.
