Norman Reedus Confirms 'Death Stranding 2' Is In Development

Norman Reedus Confirms 'Death Stranding 2' Is In Development

Hideo Kojima has been tight-lipped on the existence of the highly-anticipated sequel, but Norman Reedus confirms it's in development.

Hideo Kojima has always been open about his desire to develop a sequel to the weird and wonderful Death Stranding. It’s certainly a unique game that takes a little time to gel with, but it’s well worth the journey. Despite its commercial success though, Kojima has yet to announce the highly-anticipated sequel.

Rumours have been circling for quite some when it comes to Kojima’s next project. Reports claimed that his next idea was actually rejected by Sony, while others said he was working on an Xbox exclusive. Well, Kojima is still keeping tight-lipped but Death Stranding actor Norman Reedus may have just let slip that Death Stranding 2 is currently in development.

Kojima originally hoped to create a Silent Hill game before moving onto Death Stranding. In the mood for a scare? Check out the terrifying trailer for Slitterhead, a brand new horror game from Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama.

Reedus, who portrayed Death Stranding’s leading man Sam Porter Bridges, recently spoke to Leo Edit. He told the publication, “We just started the second one.” There it is folks. Straight from the horse’s mouth.

Since Reedus accidently let news of the sequel slip, Kojima has taken to Twitter, posting a photo of himself swinging a barbed-wire covered baseball bat at Reedus - a nod to Reedus’ tenure on The Walking Dead, with the baseball bat belonging to the series’ villain Negan. It could be a case of coincidental timing but it sure looks like a tongue-in-cheek response to Reedus’ slip.

Reedus went on to explain how he originally became involved in the game. He said, “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.’ 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 - a game called Silent Hill. I was blown away by what he was showing me.”

As I’m sure you’re all well aware, Silent Hill was cancelled by Konami and Kojima ended up leaving the studio to set up Kojima Productions. Thus, Death Stranding was born and we’re so glad it was.
