In an interview with IGN, Norman Reedus confirmed that work has already begun on a sequel to Death Stranding. “We just started the second one,” said Reedus. “I can’t wait to see what they come up with.” Death Stranding was released last year to critical acclaim, with many praising its unique gameplay and story. It’s no surprise that a sequel is already in the works, and we’re sure that fans are looking forward to see what Hideo Kojima has in store for us next. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information about the sequel is revealed.
It’s no surprise that Death Stranding is getting a sequel. The game was a commercial and critical success, and its unique blend of gameplay elements is ripe for further exploration. In the interview, Reedus didn’t reveal much about the sequel, but he did hint at some new features that fans can expect. “I think the principles are still there, the bones are still there, but I think it’s gonna be a little bit different,” he said. “I’m looking forward to delving deeper into the world and the characters.” Death Stranding 2 is sure to be one of the most anticipated games of the next few years, and we can’t wait to see what Hideo Kojima has in store for us.
When Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding was finally released last year, it was met with a mixed response from critics and players alike. Some praised the game’s unique take on the open-world genre, while others found its deliberately paced gameplay to be frustrating. However, one thing that almost everyone could agree on was that the game’s star, Norman Reedus, gave an excellent performance. Now, in a recent interview, Reedus has revealed that he has already started work on a sequel to the polarizing game. “We just started the second one,” Reedus says in response to a question about his work on Death Stranding. “I can’t wait to show you guys what we’ve been working on.” While it remains to be seen if the sequel will be able to win over skeptics, there’s no doubt that Reedus will once again be bringing his A-game to the role of Sam Porter Bridges.
That’s pretty blunt and hard to misread, but just in case there’s doubt, he repeats the claim a second time—but not before re-telling the story of how he came to meet Death Stranding director Hideo Kojima in the first place. He was introduced to Kojima at a mutual friend’s house, where they hit it off immediately. “He started talking about his ideas for the game and I just thought they were so interesting and so different,” Nelson says. “It wasn’t like anything I had heard before.” Nelson was won over, and asked if he could be in the game. The rest, as they say, is history. Thanks to Kojima’s vision—and Nelson’s performance—Death Stranding is one of the most unique games ever made.
It’s not surprising that a Death Stranding sequel would happen, given the success of the first. The game was a critical and commercial success, and it looks like Hideo Kojima is already thinking about a follow-up. In an interview with IGN Japan, Norman Reedus hinted at the possibility of a sequel, saying that he’s “already talking” to Kojima about it. It’s a little unusual that the existence of a sequel would be revealed in such a casual way, but it makes me wonder if Norman is going to be getting another phone call from Hideo soon. Either way, it’s exciting to know that we could be getting more Death Stranding in the future.
