Rumors about a sequel to “Death Stranding” have been circulating for the past few months. Sam Porter actor Norman Reedus, who confirmed the work on “Death Stranding 2” in a recent interview, provided new topics of conversation.
With “Death Stranding”, first released in November 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and later also for the PC and the PlayStation 5, the Japanese designer legend Hideo Kojima once again demonstrated his penchant for unusual gaming experiences.
As early as March 2020, Norman Reedus, who played the protagonist Sam Porter in “Death Stranding”, indicated that he was in talks with Kojima Productions to work on another project. After Reedus noted last August that he was firmly assuming a sequel, he confirmed in an interview with Leo Edit that work on “Death Stranding 2” is already underway.
“We are currently working on the second [Teil] started,” Reedus said succinctly. An official statement from Kojima Productions on the information provided by Reedus is still pending.
That’s how I got in touch with Hideo Kojima
But how did the “The Walking Dead” star actually act as the protagonist of “Death Stranding”? Reedus elaborated on this: “Guillermo Del Toro, who gave me my first film, called me and said, ‘Hey, there’s a guy called Hideo Kojima, he’s going to call you, just say yes.’ And I said, ‘What do you mean, just say yes?’ He’s like, ‘Stop being an asshole, just say yes’.”

“Then I was in San Diego and Hideo came with a big group of people. He was from Tokyo and he showed me that he was working on a game called Silent Hills. I was blown away by what he showed me and I thought, ‘Yeah, let’s do this.’ It’s not Ms Pacman. It’s so realistic, it’s so futuristic, it’s so intricate and beautiful, and I was blown away,” said Reedus.
“It took me maybe two or three years to finish all the mocap sessions and everything,” it concluded. “It takes a lot of work. And then the game came out, and it won all these awards, and it was a huge thing, so we just started part two of that.”
