While news about Death Stranding 2 has been scarce, look no further as Norman Reedus himself has spilled the beans on the next game.
In an interview with Leo, Reedus just literally says that they’ve just started working on the second game, confirming not only the existence of it but also that it is already in early production.
Death Stranding 2 Norman Reedus Interview
You can view the snippet of the said interview below:
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.

Back in August of last year, Reedus also said during an interview that the second game was in “negotiations” and now, much-needed information coming from the lead character himself.
