Norman Reedus confirms Death Stranding 2 once again and admits that he did not know Kojima before

Death Stranding 2 is indeed in development, it is now a certainty. For the second time in a few months, actor Norman Reedus has just confirmed that the continuation of the controversial game of Hideo Kojima exists. It is during an interview with the Leo Edit site that the actor launches a “We have just started the second”, without the slightest pressure. Has Norman Reedus once again broke the NDA which binds it to Kojima Productions, or is it an orchestrated leak? When we realize with what naivety he talks about his introduction with Death Stranding and Hideo Kojima, we most certainly think that all this is not calculated. The question of how Reedus landed on the project thanks to Guillermo Del Toro, who told him to accept the project.

Guillermo del Toro, who offered me my first role, called me one day to say to me: “Hey, there is a guy by the name of Hideo Kojima, he will call you, just tell him yes. “” I then replied: “How do I tell him yes?”. He replied by saying to me: “Stop making the idiot and simply tell him yes. Then I was in San Diego and Hideo came with a large group of people, he is from Tokyo, and he showed me On what he worked, a game called Silent Hill. I was blown away by what he showed me and I said to myself: “Ok, let’s do it!” At the Mrs Pacman; it’s so realistic, it’s so futuristic, it’s so Compex and Beautiful, and I was completely blown away.

It may have taken me two or three years to finish all the Mocap sessions and everything. It requires a lot of work. And then the game was released, and it just won all these awards, and it was huge, so we just started the rest of the game.

Unexpected words that allow us to better understand the influence that Guillermo del Toro can have on certain actors, who know neither really video games and even less hideo kojima, he who depicts himself as a real genius by making us believe that everything The world is ready to work with him. If the Japanese game designer dedicates a cult to the actor, it was not suddenly reciprocal. The fact remains that Death Stranding 2 is being produced, that Sam Porter Bridges will return on PS5, since the license belongs to Sony Interactive Entertainment.
