Death Stranding star reveals sequel in the works
Death Stranding star Norman Reedus has revealed that work on the sequel has “just started.”
That’s according to an interview with Leo, in which Reedus discusses, among other things, how he came about getting his role as protagonist Sam Porter Bridges. Reedus said that it took “maybe two or three years” to finish the motion capture for the first game, and then mentions that “we just started part two of that.”
This isn’t the first time that Reedus leaked the existence of a Death Stranding sequel. Last August, during a Q&A for the 11th season of The Walking Dead, Reedus said that the sequel was “in negotiations right now.” Apparently, the negotiations have finally gone through, and work has started on the game.
Death Stranding launched in late 2019 for the PlayStation 4, followed by a PC version about a year later. After that, Kojima Productions launched a Director’s Cut for PlayStation 5 and PC, the latter of which just launched in the end of March.
