News | Hideo Kojima Sends Cryptic Tweet After Death Stranding 2 Leak

After Norman Reedus says Death Stranding 2 is in the works, director Hideo Kojima sends out a tweet referring to Reedus

Actor Norman Reedus, who plays Death Stranding lead character Sam Porter Bridges, reported that production on Death Stranding 2 has “just begun.” There is no confirmation from director Hideo Kojima, but he is not denying anything yet. In a recent tweet, he seems to be responding to Reedus’ statements.

What Kojima exactly means by the tweet below is unclear. “Go to your private room, my friend,” it reads, followed by a thumbs up and heart eyes. The tweet is accompanied by three photos. The first photo shows Kojima with the ‘Lucille’ baseball bat from The Walking Dead; in the second photo, Norman Reedus is on his knees in front of Kojima, while the Japanese game director appears to be about to lash out with the bat. The third photo shows the two as friends again.

Back in 2020, Reedus said he was teaming up with Kojima again on a new game, and in August of that year, he reported thinking Death Stranding 2 was coming. Even before Death Stranding, Reedus would work with Kojima, while still working with publisher Konami, on a new game in the Silent Hill series, directed by Kojima and Guillermo del Toro. However, that game was scrapped by Konami.

News | Kojima shares photo of work on new project

Death Stranding and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima shares a photo of work on a new project on Twitter.

The photo shows people in a studio. Fans suspect that the person in a white sweater is actor Norman Reedus. Reedus is best known for the series The Walking Dead and also starred in Kojima’s most recent game, Death Stranding. He would also star in Kojima’s canceled horror game, Silent Hills.

In the tweet, Kojima says that he is making changes to a script and is experimenting. However, there are no details about the project.

By the way, Geoff Keighley, the organizer and host of The Game Awards, responded to the tweet with the eyes emoji. While that doesn’t have to mean anything, Keighley and Kojima are known to have a good relationship. Fans therefore hope that the new Kojima project will be unveiled during The Game Awards. That show will be broadcast on the night of December 9 to 10.

Earlier this week it was announced that Kojima Productions has opened a new studio in Los Angeles. This studio focuses on making films and series.
