Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding is now just a few months away from launch, and it seems that the rumours of the game coming to PC might have a grain of truth to them after all…
The supposedly-PS4 exclusive is no longer listed on the PlayStation website’s list of exclusive games, suggesting that a PC release may be on the cards for the future.
The anomaly was picked up by ResetERA user vestan, and you can check out the current official PS4 exclusive titles here.
This isn’t the first time the idea of DS on PC has cropped up. Earlier this year, another known leaker took to ResetERA to say the same thing.
Antonio Fucito: "Death Stranding is a PS4 timed exclusive, will come to PC at a later date"https://t.co/KbTsKJiGdT— NESbot (@NESbot_feed) May 30, 2019
Antonio Fucito, the same person who correctly leaked the game’s release date, said back in May: “The PS4 cover didn’t have the ‘Only on PS’ label because DS it’s coming to PC at a later date, that’s the deal signed between Kojima and Sony, the game will be a timed PS4 exclusive and will be available on PC later on (won’t be available on Xbox), I don’t know if it’s a 6 or 12 months exclusive.”
There’s even more fuel to add to this fire, because when Kojima Productions first set up, a 2015 Q&A mentioned a then-unannounced project that would start on the PS4, migrate to the PS5 and then head on over to PC [via PCGamer].
Only time will tell with this one, but it’s looking pretty hopeful for all you PC gamers out there.
In case you missed it, here’s the official plot of Death Stranding:
“Begin your quest to save civilisation in a broken world rife with supernatural dangers.
“Arm yourself and take aim at a variety of objectives in your mission to reunite a broken nation, while balancing under the weight of your cargo as you travel. Protect your supplies from wild bandits, and stay safe from the terrifying Beached Things… or face failing those who depend on you.
“Death is not the end – There is no traditional ‘game over’ state in Death Stranding. Lose your life during combat and you’ll find yourself in an upside-down realm, searching for a way back to the living. Choose your combat methods carefully, as killing your foe is almost never the solution – and every death carries a consequence.
“Assist other players – Help other travellers without ever crossing paths via asynchronous online gameplay. Send supplies, share safe houses and walk in the footsteps of fellow couriers to reunite civilisation.”
Death Stranding launches on PS4 in November.
