Norman Reedus Confirms a Death Stranding Sequel

In a recent interview with Leo Edit, actor Norman Reedus, who plays Samuel “Sam” Porter Bridges in the open-world action-adventure game Death Stranding, stated that a sequel to the game has begun development. In the interview, he stated that “we just started the second one” and “we just started part two of that.” Death Stranding first launched for the PlayStation 4 in November 2019 and PC in July 2020. The game is available for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store. Death Stranding Director’s Cut is available for PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

The full section of the interview in which Reedus mentions the sequel can be seen below:

Okay, so you got the book going on, you’ve got the final season [of AMC’s The Walking Dead] coming out, then the spinoff, and you’re filming Death Stranding, the video game.

Reedus: “We just started the second one.”

How did that come about?

Reedus: “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 motion capture 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.”
