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.
