Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima’s ambitious yet confusing action game, has been confirmed for PC. The game was initially announced for PlayStation 4, but no announcement regarding other platforms was ever made. After months upon months of speculation, Kojima Productions confirmed today that Death Stranding will see a PC release in the summer of 2020.
Death Stranding releases for PlayStation 4 on November 8th, but PC players will have to wait. Fortunately, publishing of the PC port will be handled by 505 Games, a studio renowned for their work on Control. Currently, the independent developer has only shared a release time frame of “early summer”. This means that Death Stranding will stay a PlayStation 4 exclusive title for at least a couple of months.
Death Stranding is director Hideo Kojima’s first project after his departure from Konami in 2015. If you’ve been keeping up with the game, this announcement shouldn’t really come as a surprise. A few months ago, the game was stripped of its title as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, giving rise to lots of theories about an incoming PC release.
While details about Death Stranding’s gameplay are scarce, we know of several celebrities who will make an appearance in the game. Of course, there’s The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus who has been there since the beginning, but there are a lot more familiar faces. Mads Mikkelsen, Troy Baker, Lindsay Wagner, and even famous television host Conan O’Brien have a cameo.
PC players who have been wanting to play the game will be glad to hear the news. However, if you can’t wait a couple of months, Death Stranding will be available to play on PlayStation 4 next week on November 8th. Personally, the confusing and zany teasers of the game have peaked my curiosity, and I’m interested to see what the game is actually about.
