Death Stranding sequel in negotiations, says Norman Reedus

According to Norman Reedus, a sequel to Death Stranding is currently in negotiations, though there's no word yet from Sony.

Is a Death Stranding sequel coming in the future? Apparently yes according to actor Norman Reedus (who played Sam Porter Bridges in Death Stranding).

According to IGN Brazil, Reedus told reporter Vitória Pratini from AdoroCinema that a second Death Stranding game is in negotiations. In his own words, Reedus said “I think we’re doing a second Death Stranding,” and that “[The game] is in negotiations right now. So… Yay!”

Currently though, Sony nor Kojima Productions have released an official announcement of a Death Stranding follow-up. While this is not an official confirmation that we’re getting a Death Stranding 2 sometime in the future, this is at least an indication that a sequel to Hideo Kojima’s latest game is at least being considered.

So, how likely is it that we get a new Death Stranding game? Well, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if you ask us. For one, Sony is releasing a Death Stranding Director’s Cut for the PS5 this September, so there’s likely interest in expanding the game into a full-blown series. Plus, the fact that the original game sold over 5 million copies, means it’s a big success, especially for a new IP.
