Dead stranding 2 was officially revealed at The Game Awards in December, following a series of teases from Kojima Productions. It started with a few teasers featuring actress Elle Fanning, and it seems she was chosen for a reason: the sequel’s story revolves around her character! The news was revealed by Geoff Keighley on an episode of Kojima’s Brain structure podcast. The podcast also revealed that Kojima has long been a fan of Fanning’s work, although she wasn’t very familiar with video games before she started the project! Apparently, director Nicolas Winding Refn connected the two.
Unfortunately, very little additional information about the game has been provided. From the first trailer, we know that Sam Porter Bridges, Norman Reedus’ character, will be returning, though it remains to be seen in what capacity. The game’s existence was actually revealed by Reedus long before the game was officially revealed, leading fans to wait months to actually see it confirmed. In addition to Reedus’ return, Troy Baker will also reprise his role as Higgs Monaghan. Fanning will not be the only newcomer, because last year actress Shioli Kutsuna was also part of the cast. Like Fanning, Kutsuna appeared in multiple teasers before we officially knew Kojima Productions was developing a sequel. Kutsuna is probably known to Marvel fans as she played the role of Yukio in dead pool 2.
Hopefully, Kojima Productions will have a lot more information to reveal about the game in the near future! It is not clear how far it is exactly Dead stranding 2 is, but we probably won’t see it on PlayStation 5 until sometime in 2024. That has yet to be confirmed, but it’s been suggested by a recent leak. The original Death stranding has found great success on PC and PlayStation platforms, and fans are sure to be excited to see how the sequel will expand into that world!
