What simply occurred? One of probably the most distinctive video games in latest reminiscence is getting a sequel and in line with its star, growth has already began. In a latest interview with Leo, Norman Reedus – who performed Sam Porter Bridges within the authentic Death Stranding – stated “we simply began the second” when requested about filming for the sport.
Reedus went on to elucidate how he met director Hideo Kojima, which is an attention-grabbing story by itself.
“Guillermo Del Toro, who gave me my first film, referred to as me up and stated, ‘Hey, there is a man named Hideo Kojima, he is gonna name you, simply say sure.’ And I am going, ‘What do you imply simply say sure?’ He goes, ‘Stop being an asshole, simply say sure.'”
When the 2 lastly met in individual, Kojima confirmed Reedus his newest challenge, Silent Hills. That title was canceled in 2015 however Reedus and Kojima finally got here collectively to work on Death Stranding.
“It took me possibly two or three years to complete all of the MoCap classes and every thing,” Reedus informed Leo. “It takes lots of work. And then the sport got here out, and it simply gained all these awards, and it was an enormous factor, so we simply began half two of that.”
Death Stranding struggled a bit out of the gate attributable to lofty expectations however assist finally picked up. Last summer season, Kojima Productions introduced it had offered 5 million copies as much as that time. A director’s minimize launched on PlayStation 5 final September.
Reedus’ admission most likely would not match everybody’s definition of official affirmation of the sequel, nevertheless it appears unlikely he would merely make up one thing like that for dialog sake.
Assuming the timeline is correct and Kojima Productions actually did simply begin engaged on a follow-up, it’s going to seemingly be a number of extra years earlier than a completed product is able to ship. That stated, Summer Game Fest is just some weeks away and could be the right stage for Kojima to shore up Reedus’ feedback.
