Death Stranding Could Also Release On PS5 - Report
Death Stranding could be a PS5 game.
Update 2: We now know when Death Stranding is coming. A new trailer has revealed that the game's release date is set for November 8 on PS4. Whether it'll also come to PS5 one day remains to be seen, but it's exciting to know that Kojima's latest game will be playable this year.
Update: When we asked Sony whether Death Stranding would come to PS4, PS5, or both, the company avoided answering the question directly and simply listed the game as one of many that "PlayStation fans have ... to look forward to on PS4." Original story follows.
Death Stranding could be making the jump to PlayStation 5, according to a new report. Wired state that PS5 (and PS4) lead system architect Mark Cerny implied the upcoming PlayStation 4 game might instead release on both that console and the next-generation PlayStation.
While talking about PS5's backwards compatibility, Cerny says the transition from PS4 to next-gen will be "gentle," with many games launching on both platforms. When Wired asked how Death Stranding fits in to all this, Cerny reportedly smiled and didn't reply, before a spokesperson merely repeated the game would come to PS4.
The much-anticipated game is the next project from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima. It's an open-world action title that includes an optional online multiplayer component. Revealed at E3 2016, Death Stranding has become a game of much interest to fans of both PlayStation and Kojima himself, but we're no closer to knowing even a vague release window.
The game sees you play as Sam Bridges, an employee for a mysterious organization who embarks on a journey to reunite a shattered world filled with dangerous invisible enemies of unknown origin. His profession seems to be that of a delivery man of sorts, but the nature of the parcels he delivers remains unexplained. For more, check out everything we know about Death Stranding.
