Hideo Kojima „Punishes” Norman Reedus for Leaking Death Stranding 2

Norman Reedus has reason to be concerned. Hideo Kojima isn't thrilled that the actor spilled the beans about Death Stranding 2. Fortunately, the director just kidding (at least for now).

Hideo Kojima doesn't seem to be thrilled by Norman Reedus' indiscretion, after he revealed a few days ago that a sequel to Death Stranding is in the pipeline. The creator of the game published a Tweet in reaction (below), in which, like an angry parent, orders the actor to go to his "private room" - referring to the resting place of the protagonist (played by the said artist) in the game. The post also features Norman Reedus (so there's no doubt who he's referring to), including Kojima swinging a baseball bat (so Reedus is aware of the gravity of the situation).

Of course, all of this "scaring" of Reedus is just a joke, though some will probably take it as confirmation of recent information revealed by the actor. As a reminder: the actor playing the main role in Death Stranding revealed that work on a sequel to the game has already begun.

The fact that Kojima, instead of denying the words of his "unruly" colleague or simply ignoring them, responded in such a manner provideds food for thought - at least for speculation enthusiasts. For now the Japanese developer did not mention a word about the second part of Death Stranding and probably this will not change in the near future. Especially if work on the game has really only recently begun.

He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
