Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding has been criticized by some as being a walking simulator, but that hasn’t prevented the game from attracting a massive following due to its gorgeous visuals, combat and stealth gameplay, and cast of notable actors that include Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) and Léa Seydoux (Spectre).

Luckily for Death Stranding fans, there are now signs that a sequel could definitely be on the way.

The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, who stars as Death Stranding protagonist Sam Bridges, recently told Brazilian movie outlet AdoroCinema that a sequel to Death Stranding is already in negotiations.

“[The game] is in negotiations right now,” Reedus claimed. “So… Yay!”

There’s a possibility that Reedus could be confusing the upcoming director’s cut release of Death Stranding for the PlayStation 5 with a legitimate sequel, but the idea of a follow up doesn’t seem that far fetched for a game that has sold over 5 million copies. Kojima is also no stranger to sequels, having directed and penned multiple Metal Gear games.

Death Stranding Director’s Cut will be released for the PS5 on September 24, 2021. This is a fully remastered and expanded version of the game that will take advantage of Sony’s next-gen hardware and feature new content, such as “more weapons, equipment and vehicles, a variety of new modes, missions and areas to explore, expanded storylines, and enhancements to the UI.”

A new preview trailer for the director’s cut of Death Stranding was released last week. It’s unclear whether any of its additions will make their way over to the PC version.

[…] Death Stranding Director’s Cut was all built and developed from the ground up, following the launch of the original Death Stranding. Everything from the Firing Range area, to the additional missions, to the all-new Fragile Circuit racing mode, the aim was to introduce new content that would further expand the world within Death Stranding while enhancing the core game experience.
