Hideo Kojima discusses possible Death Stranding 2: ‘I would start from zero’
Designer could work with Norman Reedus again in the future
Hideo Kojima has suggested he could create a follow-up to Death Stranding in the future.
The designer told Vulture that he could work with actor Norman Reedus again, perhaps in a sequel to the PS4 open-world game.
However, the Metal Gear creator added that if he did create Death Stranding 2, he “would start from zero.”
Kojima has recently indicated that his immediate focus could be on a new horror project.
In a message posted on Twitter in November, Kojima wrote: “As to make the scariest horror game, I’ll watch the scary movies in order to awaken my horror soul.”
The Metal Gear creator famously announced a horror game – Konami’s Silent Hills – once before, but that title was ultimately never released.
Announced in 2014, Silent Hills was to be directed by Kojima and Guillermo del Toro, with Norman Reedus in the starring role. The project was cancelled by publisher Konami following the release of a playable teaser called P.T.
The Metal Gear Solid creator subsequently left Konami and the publisher disbanded Kojima Productions, but Kojima later reformed the studio as an independent company.
Both Reedus and Del Toro went on to star in Kojima’s next title, Death Stranding.
VGC’s Death Stranding review was published ahead of release.
A PC version of Death Stranding will launch in summer 2020. Publisher 505 has confirmed that Death Stranding PC will release for both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
VGC analysis has revealed that of the some 120 core developers who worked on the game at Kojima Productions, more than half also worked on Kojima’s final Konami title, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
