That’s right, PC players, Death Stranding is coming to a rig near you - unless... it isn’t. As with everything else about Death Stranding, it’s all a bit of a mystery.
Now, as we know, some PC players have a tendency to be a little… judgmental towards their console-gaming brethren. Can’t we all just happily share our passion for gaming with each other, without being snide about the system we choose to play on? Well, no, of course, we can’t. The fact is that a top-quality gaming rig is the most powerful gaming system available, and those who own them do love to remind the rest of us of this fact.
Still, each gaming system has its own advantages and disadvantages, and there’s really no need to get into all of that. When it comes to releases, this also holds true: sometimes PC players miss out, and other times console gamers do. Good news, PC gamers interested in Hideo Kojima’s mysterious Death Stranding: it’s coming your way too - or at least it seems to be.
Nothing’s set in stone with this one, of course. Recently, Hideo Kojima had been having too much fun posting bizarre teaser-tweets about the game to provide us with any actual details. Finally, though, a long trailer dropped, which gave us a little insight into the distinctly Metal Gear-ish gameplay and a release date: November 8, 2019.
Death Stranding is a title that has been heavily linked with PlayStation, of course, but as Redditors are keen to remind us, it’s also (supposedly) coming to PC.
As evidence, the post points towards an intriguing press release regarding an agreement between Sony and Kojima Productions. It clearly states that Death Stranding will be a PS4 console exclusive, but will come to PC an undisclosed amount of time after the PS4 launch. What we’re looking at, then, seems to be a Nier: Automata situation.
How long will PC players be waiting to get their hands on Kojima’s latest after its launch on PlayStation? There’s no saying, and there are still no guarantees. Until we know anything concrete, we can only speculate.
