Death Stranding‘s lead actor Norman Reedus appears to have revealed that negotiations are under way for a sequel, it’s being reported.
The word comes from Adoro Cinema (via Nibellion on Twitter) in an interview with the actor published over the weekend. “I think we’re doing a second Death Stranding,” he said (via Google Translate) [The game] is in negotiations now. So… Yay.”
The studio behind the game, Kojima Productions, are yet to comment on Reedus’ comments, so don’t take this as official word just yet. However, it’d certainly make sense what with the positive reception to the first game. It also sold over five million copies as of July on PS4 and PC, which also sets the series in good stead for a follow-up.
In the immediate future, meanwhile, the studio is gearing up to launch Death Stranding: Director’s Cut. An enhanced re-release of the game for the PlayStation 5, it’ll include new features, new missions and a lot more besides. Even if Kojima himself apparently doesn’t like the name Director’s Cut.
Are you excited for a potential Death Stranding 2? Let us know in the comments. Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is currently set to launch on PlayStation 5 later this month, on September 24.
