Death Stranding Coming To PC Next Year
The emerging strand genre adds another platform.
Death Stranding is just weeks away on PS4, which was believed to be the only platform it was set to release on. But it turns out that prior indications that it might also come to PC were correct. Hideo Kojima has announced that a PC version of the game is coming in Summer 2020. A more exact release date was not announced.
In an announcement, publisher 505 Games announced it will publish the PC version. Further details are said to be coming in the near future. The announcement didn't detail if it's coming to Steam or the Epic Games Store, but 505 has published games on EGS this year including Control.

"We are extremely excited and honored to be working with the supremely talented team at Kojima Productions and to bring Death Stranding to PC gamers around the world," 505 CEO Raffi Galante said in the announcement. "Death Stranding will take gamers through a completely original experience that will delight PC gamers everywhere."
With Death Stranding on PS4 coming so soon--it launches on November 8--many in the community are waiting to hear more about it. We know the review embargo lifts on November 1, so that's when we'll get our first complete impressions of Kojima's latest experimental gameplay.
The studio has been teasing special guest appearances from celebrities, most recently comedian and talk show host Conan O'Brien. The cameos include some video game developers too, but Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski says he passed on the opportunity.
