What you need to know

  • Death Stranding is a major new game from Kojima Productions.
  • We have confirmation that Death Stranding is coming to PC.
  • Death Stranding is set to come to PC sometime in early summer 2020.

Death Stranding is a major PlayStation 4 exclusive that is finally getting ready to launch in just over a week. If you don't have a PlayStation 4 however, you will eventually be able to play it on your PC. Kojima Productions confirmed on Twitter today that Death Stranding will come to PC sometime in early summer of 2020.

A couple of months ago, we reported that the game had been removed from Sony's list of PlayStation 4 exclusives. Additionally, when a partnership between Kojima and PlayStation was first announced back in 2015, the language used for the game was "console exclusive" indicating that while it wouldn't make its way to other consoles, PC remained a possibility.

According to Gematsu, the PC version of Death Stranding will be published by 505 Games. Given how many games 505 Games has recently published on the Epic Games Store, it's a strong possibility that it will be a timed Epic Games Store exclusive title on PC, though obviously this hasn't been confirmed.

Death Stranding is shaping up to be, at the very least, an interesting game, with features like a cameo from Conan O'Brien, who gives the player a sea otter hat. If you'd like to see more footage from Death Stranding, you can check out the trailer and gameplay footage from Tokyo Game Show 2019, as well as some clips revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live. We'll be sure to provide an update when the full release date is announced.
