Norman Reedus, the actor who played Sam Porter Bridges in Death Stranding, revealed in a recent interview that negotiations are underway for a Death Stranding continuation. The news comes just after Kojima Productions released new gameplay footage from the upcoming . has revealed Death Stranding Director’s Cut. While the new release promises fans a variety of new content and PS5 improvements, the prospect of a completely separate game beyond is true. Death Stranding omitted is completely new.
The news comes from IGN Brazil’s Vitoria Pratini, who asked Reedus several questions about his characters during an interview about the upcoming season of The living Dead-the popular zombie drama series in which the actor plays Daryl Dixon. Aside from Sam Porter Bridges likely to win a marathon against Daryl Dixon, Reedus revealed (albeit a little casually) that talks are already underway at Kojima Productions for a Death Stranding 2.
As translated by TheGamer, the actor reportedly said, “I think we’re doing a second Death Stranding. [The game] is currently under negotiation. So… Yay!”
Pratini cautions, however, that it’s still unclear whether the actor really meant a direct sequel, or was just mentioning it Death Stranding Director’s Cuts release on September 24, 2021. In addition, although this news is in line with rumors of a new project in development at Kojima Productions as of October last year, that project had the director snow also.
People are already tearing apart the preview trailer for the Director’s Cut for clues, particularly citing a strange cutscene at the end of the trailer where Sam is nearly attacked by a whale while hanging his head out of a doorway that appears to be deep in an abyss. Anyway, with the Director’s Cut release will be out next month and the sequel only “in negotiations”, it is highly unlikely Death Stranding fans will see an official announcement soon.
For now, it’s best to take Norman’s words with a grain of salt and wait for confirmation from Kojima Productions and/or PlayStation Studios.
