The highly-anticipated title launches on PS4 in just under two weeks on Friday 8th November, and is the first effort from legendary Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima’s new production company, Kojima Productions, since his acrimonious split from Konami back in 2015. The game was first announced back at E3 2016 and will feature The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus as Sam Porter Bridges, and has been described as “a completely new type of action game” by Kojima.
While Sony Interactive Entertainment will be publishing the PS4 version of the game, 505 Games will be dealing with the PC version. Although there has been no announcement regarding which storefronts the PC version will be available through, the involvement of 505 Games has caused a lot of players to speculate that the PC version of Death Stranding will be an Epic Games Store exclusive following the recent news that Epic Games paid 505 Games parent company, Digital Bros, a whopping £8.38 million for exclusive rights to their recent release, Control. It’s safe to say that has caused some backlash from players, but it’s all speculation for now, so we’ll have to wait and see.
Death Stranding will launch for PC in the “early summer of 2020”. No exact date was announced, but we’ll keep you updated as and when that information becomes available.
