Actor and Monster Energy drinker Norman Reedus has seemingly confirmed that Death Stranding 2 exists in an interview with men’s website Leo this week. The titbit was spotted and posted on Twitter by Nibel this afternoon. Break it to us gently, Norm.
Asked about Death Stranding, Reedus replies with “We just started the second one.” He then goes on to expand a bit on how he was drawn into the first Death Stranding project by Oscar-winning director of Blade II Guillermo del Toro and Hideo “He’s from Tokyo” Kojima. Reedus then explained: “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.”
Now, it’s not clear when the interview took place so Reedus could have been referring to this year’s Death Stranding: Director’s Cut rather than a full-blown sequel. It’s open to interpretation. You can read the interview in full here and decide for yourself.
