The Death Stranding PC release date hasn’t yet arrived, but it already looks like a sequel could be on the cards. Game director Hideo Kojima has talked about the possibility of another Death Stranding, and while it’s far from confirmed as a project, he has said if he made it, he “would start from zero.”

Vulture reports that at a recent event Kojima discussed the prospect of working with actor Norman Reedus – who portrays protagonist Sam – again in the future. Potentially, this could be on a sequel to Death Stranding. While the director didn’t confirm that he would make a Death Stranding 2, he explained that should he ever do it, he “would start from zero.”

It’s not entirely clear what he means by this, but it perhaps suggests that a Death Stranding sequel wouldn’t necessarily follow on from the events of the first game, which released for PlayStation 4 on November 8 and is due to head to PC sometime next year on both the Epic store and Steam.

The game sees Sam – and all of humanity – catapulted into a post-apocalyptic world, in which he must ferry packages back and forth between isolated colonies of survivors, helping to keep them connected.
