Those of you that loved Mads Mikkelsen in Death Stranding hoping to see him in the upcoming sequel are about to be quite disappointed.
If you’ve followed Hideo Kojima on Twitter since at least before Death Stranding, you will have seen the numerous images he shared of him with Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen, and his attempts to be as cool as the Danish actor. Mikkelsen was one of the several celebrities to appear in the walking simulator, even voicing his own character, Cliff. But during last week’s State of Play, where we got to see a lengthy bit of Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, as it’s now known, Mikkelsen was nowhere to be seen. According to Kojima, though, we won’t be seeing Cliff in the upcoming sequel.
“We have received many enthusiastic messages from you saying, ‘I want to see Cliff in DS2 too!’ However, Mads is not appearing in Death Stranding 2: On the Beach,” wrote Kojima on Twitter. That’s obviously going to be sad news if you love his character (or just love him), but Kojima did have more to see on it a bit later on.
