The air of mystery surrounding Hideo Kojima’s long-awaited Death Stranding sequel continues to build. Despite having actors actively recording dialogue for Death Stranding 2: On The Beach, Kojima remains tight-lipped about concrete story details.
This unconventional approach leaves performers like the Japanese voice actor for protagonist Sam Porter Bridges completely in the dark, forced to record lines devoid of narrative context.
Kojima Nondisclosure Agreements Leave Actors Clueless
In a recent episode of HideoTube, Kojima’s YouTube series making its comeback after a nearly ten-year hiatus, the Sam Porter Bridges Japanese voice actor admitted his complete lack of knowledge regarding Death Stranding 2’s plot.
Though assured the storyline would make sense when recording begins in earnest, the actor currently possesses no information about the game outside of the cryptic State of Play trailer showcasing new characters.
This cone of silence around Death Stranding 2 extends even to prominent figures like Norman Reedus, who admitted during Tokyo Game Show 2022 that he remains confused about what’s happening.
Kojima is playing his cards extremely close to the vest, unwilling to provide clarity even to those actively working on the project. All will apparently become clear in due time.
Sequel Details Still Shrouded in Mystery
With recording underway, concrete details can’t be too far off. But for now, the gaming world continuesleft guessing about Death Stranding 2’s story beats. The State of Play trailer shows Sam embarking on a new mission to connect settlements outside the Central Knot region, but other tantalizing details remain shrouded in signature Kojima mystique.
One thing’s for certain – when Death Stranding 2: On The Beach launches in 2025 as a PlayStation 5 console exclusive, it’s sure to be another signature mind-bending entry in the Kojima catalog. And his approach to secrecy means audiences are in for a thrilling, unconventional ride into the unknown.
