In a new interview published by Leo Edit, Norman Reedus confirmed that a Death Stranding sequel is currently in production. Reedus plays the role of protagonist Sam Porter Bridges in Death Stranding. The renown actor says MoCap sessions for the original game took around 2 to 3 years. Following the success of the game, “part two” of Death Stranding was greenlit.
Here’s the excerpt about the Death Stranding sequel:
Okay, so you got the book going on, you’ve got the final season coming out, then the spinoff, and you’re filming Death Stranding, the video game.
We just started the second one.
How did that come about?
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 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 is available now for PS4, PS5, PC via Epic Games Store and Steam.
