Here’s some good news for Death Stranding fans who were disappointed about the games platform exclusivity. Sony’s no longer referring to Kojima’s, well, whatever it is, as a Playstation 4 exclusive. How do we know this?
Sony has an official list of PS4 exclusive titles on its international websites. A user over on the ResetEra forums noticed that Death Stranding is no longer on the list. You can see the exclusives list right here. If you use Wayback Machine to go back to the website as it appears at the end of May, you’ll see Death Stranding listed there, next to Driveclub, Days Gone, Derecine, Doki-Doki Universe and all the other exclusive D’s (wow that sounds weird). But take a look at the website right now and Death Stranding is no longer on the list.
Death Stranding is due a new trailer and some announcements on August 19th, shortly before Gamescom. Considering that it’s been delisted from Sony’s list of exclusives, it’s very much possible that we’ll see an announcement about its elusive PC version then.
If you remember, way back when Death Stranding was first announced, Kojima Productions didn’t rule out a PC version. However, we saw references to non-Sony platforms disappear soon after, as Kojima and Sony collaborated more closely on the game. If there is going to be a multiplatform announcement though, we’d bet it’s just PS4 and PC. Kojima continues to have a good working relationship with Sony so it’s hard to see Death Stranding coming out on Microsoft’s console too. You never know, though.
