Norman Reedus has revealed that Kojima Productions and Sony Interactive Entertainment have begun negotiations over a potential sequel to Death Stranding. The news comes from a conversation Reedus had with journalists for the eleventh season of The Walking Dead during which he revealed that he believes a second game will happen. No other details were revealed.
Death Stranding has sold over 5 million copies worldwide across the PlayStation 4 and PC, the game also turned a profit and is considered a success by Kojima Productions. Sony Interactive Entertainment are also releasing Death Stranding Director’s Cut for the PlayStation 5, an upgraded version of Death Stranding with additional content, on the 24th of September 2021.

Death Stranding Director’s Cut is packed with a ton of new content and enhanced gameplay features. We are introducing more weapons, equipment and vehicles, a variety of new modes, missions and areas to explore, expanded storylines, and enhancements to the UI. We will also be adding new online features including Friend Play and Leaderboards, more news on that coming soon!
Today however, I wanted to take this time to clear up a few things that have been floating around following our teaser release during Summer Games Fest back on June 10… if you didn’t see it, check it out here…
For starters, the content that we’re introducing to Death Stranding Director’s Cut was all built and developed from the ground up, following the launch of the original Death Stranding. Everything from the Firing Range area, to the additional missions, to the all-new Fragile Circuit racing mode, the aim was to introduce new content that would further expand the world within Death Stranding while enhancing the core game experience.
The new content isn’t simply bolted on either, it’s been carefully woven into the core game experience and will be made available through discovery as you play. Most of the new content is fairly easy to find, though there are some bits and pieces that will take some time to find and unlock. Although I can’t really go into too much detail about the new missions and extended storyline at this point, what I can share is that a few hints have been added to the latest trailer we’ve released that give a few clues as to what you can expect—we’ll have more to share on that in the weeks to come—though I can confirm now that all the Half-Life and Cyberpunk 2077 content introduced to the PC version of Death Stranding will also be available in Death Stranding Director’s Cut.
