Norman Reedus has dropped the details on an upcoming sequel to Death Stranding and revealed that it is currently in development.
In an interview that was published online, the actor and lead protagonist of the first game mentioned that they are working on the second game in the Death Stranding series.
During the interview, he was asked a question about his work in video games. The interviewer mentioned that he was filming Death Stranding to which Norman replied that “we just started the second one.” Here’s the part in the interview where he mentioned the details of how he managed to work on the game.
Okay, so you got the book going on, you’ve got the final season coming out, then the spinoff, and you’re filming Death Stranding, the video game.
We just started the second one.
How did that come about?
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 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.
Death Stranding is a PlayStation console exclusive IP from Sony that has also received a release on PC. It was developed by Kojima Productions while the PC version was published by 505 Games.
The game also received an enhanced port for the PS5 with a director’s cut that was recently released on PC as well.
