Death Stranding officially gets a sequel.
At The Game Awards this week, Solid metal gear Creator Hideo Kojima’s next game has been revealed to be a follow-up to his star-studded quirky messenger game from 2019.
The reveal trailer primarily focuses on Lea Seydoux’s character, Fragile, as she is chased by armed characters as she tries to escape with her baby. We also see Norman Reedus’ Sam Porter Bridges, though he looks quite old this time around, or just dyed his hair gray. The duo team up and it looks like their adventures could take them out to sea, as we see a giant ship rise out of the water.

We also see a mysterious masked character, and a BB Pod strangely hosting a tentacle rather than a baby. What happens then?
Appearing onstage at the ceremony, Kojima explained that he wanted to leave things open for fans to speculate and interpret for now, rather than telling us exactly what’s going on.
The legendary director also said on stage that he actually rewrote the game’s story in 2020 after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, after many people noted similarities between the 2019 original and the real world events of two years ago.
“I also didn’t want to predict the future, so I rewrote it,” he joked.

In addition to Reedus and Seydoux, the game also features Maleficent and Greatby Elle Fanning, and Deadpool 2 actress Shioli Kutsuna, while Troy Baker is also back from the first game.
Death Stranding 2 is currently in development for PlayStation 5. The first game was released on PC as well as PlayStation, so a PC port for the sequel wouldn’t be too surprising. Considering Reedus said they “just started” working on the game in May, it could be a while.
