Norman Reedus: Death Stranding 2 ‘Is in Negotiations Right Now’

Death Stranding launched just under two years ago, but another entry in the series may already be in the works, according to Norman Reedus.

Speaking to AdoroCinema (via IGN Brasil), Reedus touched on the future of the Death Stranding series, reportedly saying that a second game may currently be in negotiations. “I think we’re doing a second Death Stranding,” Reedus said. “[Death Stranding 2] is in negotiations right now. So… yay!

Of course, it’s important to take this information with a grain of salt, as not only is it just one statement from Reedus, but any potential negotiations could stretch for a lengthy amount of time. Regardless, the news comes at a big time for Hideo Kojima and Death Stranding, as Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is set to release later next month, complete with some upgrades.

A recent extended trailer for Death Stranding: Director’s Cut gave a detailed look at a few of the new items, chief among them being a new jetpack that has thrusters that allow players to glide or slow themselves down after leaping off a cliff. The Buddy Bot — a robot that allows you to carry more cargo or will even carry you — was shown in greater detail, as well as a new weapon training area that includes virtual combat encounters with enemies. When the game launches, there will be two modes: a Performance Mode that runs at 60 frames per second with upscaled 4K and Fidelity Mode that runs at native 4K. Ultrawide and HDR support will also be in this version.

The Digital Deluxe Edition will be full price — $60 — but the standard edition upgrade is still $10. New UI changes and online support are coming as well, including leaderboards and “Friend Play,” the latter of which wasn’t detailed. It could be related to the new racing mode as players will be able to compete against the ghosts of others.
