Despite the somewhat mixed reviews (you can read ours here), 'Death Stranding' is one of those games that you will think about long after you've played it.
In fact, 'Death Stranding' had that same thing that 'Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty' had, in that it was eerily prescient. In the latter, it talked about the rise of fake news and echo chambers, whereas in 'Death Stranding', people were trapped in colonies and society had effectively walled itself off for protection, not unlike the pandemic.
Anyway, in a recent interview with IGN Brazil (and picked up by Eurogamer) promoting the final season of 'The Walking Dead', none other than Norman Reedus said that he thinks a second game is on the way and that it's currently being negotiated. Reedus was joined in the cast of the game by Lea Seydoux and Mads Mikkelsen, so expect a similarly intriguing cast for the second game.
So far, neither Hideo Kojima nor Sony have publicly commented or confirmed what Reedus is saying, but given the sales figures for the game and the fact that Hideo Kojima is the equivalent of an A-list director in the gaming world, it seems like this is a given if everyone wants it tot be.
A PS5 update, titled 'Death Stranding: Director's Cut', is due for release on September 24th, which will feature improved graphics with 60 frames per second, and new items to help with the drudgery of walking longggg distances. Yes, that's the point of the game, but come on, who's got that kind of time anymore?
