There is quite a following behind each of Hideo Kojima’s releases. After the split between Hideo and Konami, the famed developer started his own development studio with Kojima Productions. Their first big release was Death Stranding, a title that starred actor Norman Reedus. It’s gained quite a bit of well-received reception, and following this release, Hideo Kojima charted out a sequel. Now it looks like a new tease from Hideo Kojima could indicate that Keanu Reeves may also be featured in this game.
The reason so many are jumping to this cameo is the fact that Hideo Kojima posted a few images on Instagram. Within these images, we have Norman Reedus and Keanu Reeves together, prompting all the speculation. While we know Norman Reedus is involved with Death Stranding 2, we have yet to see any confirmation that there will be a character in which Keanu Reeves will be portraying. Of course, we won’t be surprised either if Keanu Reeves is featured in the upcoming Death Stranding 2.
Hideo Kojima had quite a few cameo appearances from celebrities in the first game. Likewise, the famed developer is also a big movie buff, so having some of these talented individuals in the game is not a stretch. Unfortunately, the images showcased don’t look to be featured in any studio but in some outdoor locations. So, for now, we can continue guessing as to if Keanu Reeves is being featured in Death Stranding 2 or not. After all, this wouldn’t be the only other celebrity that popped up with Hideo Kojima that sparked speculation. Earlier this year, we even saw actor Nicolas Cage appear at the Kojima Productions headquarters.
Likewise, we can continue to ponder about what exactly Death Stranding 2 will feature. It wasn’t long ago that news broke of Hideo Kojima rewriting the storyline during the pandemic. Likewise, we also learned earlier this year that this storyline was crucial for actress Elle Fanning to be involved. With so much potential star power in this upcoming game, it will be interesting to see if this new installment does even better than the initial installment release. For now, you can view a trailer for the upcoming Death Stranding 2 in the video we have embedded below. Currently, the game does not have a release date attached quite yet. Meanwhile, we know that Keanu Reeves will make a return in the video game industry with the upcoming release of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. This expansion will see Keanu Reeves once again step back into the iconic role of Johnny.
