Death Stranding 2 Has Started Development, According to Norman Reedus

Matt Lorrigan

Death Stranding and The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus appears to have confirmed the existence of Death Stranding 2 in a recent interview.

Speaking to Leo Edit, Reedus responded to a question about filming for Death Stranding, saying “we just started the second one”, before going on to explain how he got involved with the project and Hideo Kojima in the first place, all the way back with P.T. and Silent Hills.

“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.”

Reedus then goes on to mention a second time that they've started working on “part two” of Death Stranding, and Reedus had previously said that Death Stranding 2 was “in negotiations”, so it seems that things have progressed from there into early development.

“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: Director's Cut recently released on PS5, and you can check out our full review here.

  • Not bad!
  • I thought I read that Death Stranding wasn't very successful? (financially) If true I doubt they'd jump right into a sequel
  • Just started replaying this for the ps5 platinum, super exciting news!
  • I was super psyched about this game just based on it being Kojima. When I finally found out what the game actually was about, I didn't really know what the feel. It was a little disappointing on paper, but its probably one of my favorite games now. Kojima delivered again.

    I just installed the PS5 version to play it over again and I was thinking how I hope they decide to do a sequel. I wasnt sure if whoever decided these things would feel it was worth it, so this is awesome.

  • This is great news. Was truly an amazing game. One of my all time favourites.
  • Kojima is overrated. Somebody had to say it.
  • Amazing! One of my favourite games for sure. Wonder how the sequel will look like considering the game's ending.
