Norman Reedus has revealed that production for a Death Stranding sequel has already begun, the news comes from an interview with Leo Edit in which Reedus mentioned that “we just started the second one” and “we just started part two of that” when speaking about Death Stranding.
Reedus previously revealed in August 2021 that Kojima Productions and Sony Interactive Entertainment were in negotiations over a potential sequel to Death Stranding. Death Stranding has sold over 5 million copies worldwide across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC, the game also turned a profit and is considered a success by Kojima Productions.
Here’s what Reedus had to say:
Guillermo Del Toro, who gave me my first movie, called me up and said, ‘Hey, there’s a guy named Hideo Kojima, he’s gonna call you, just say yes.’ And I go, ‘What do you mean just say yes?’ He goes, ‘Stop being an asshole, just say yes.’ Then I was in San Diego and Hideo came with a big group of people, he’s from Tokyo, and he showed me what he was working on on a game called Silent Hill. I was blown away by what he was showing me, and I was like, ‘Yes, let’s do this.” It’s not Ms. Pacman; it’s so realistic, it’s so futuristic, it’s so complicated and beautiful, and I was completely blown away. It took me maybe two or three years to finish all the motion capture 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.
