Coronavirus (COVID-19) has thrown a wrench into just about everything, leading to untold delays in every industry. The latest piece of media to feel the effects of this is the PC port of Death Stranding.
“Following the temporary closure of KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS, we have had to delay the PC launch of DEATH STRANDING to July 14, 2020, to allow more development time amidst the current work-from-home orders in place. Thank you all for your patience and continued support! #keeponkeepingon” Writes Kojima Productions on Twitter.
While disappointing for those angling for the release, the delay is relatively short and completely understandable given the conditions.
At the time of writing neither of the two linked storefronts above have changed the release date on their platform, but we assume that will happen in short order as Kojima Productions made their announcement very recently.
Strangely enough Death Stranding has been doing the rounds for a completely different reason today. You may have seen this image or video on your feed recently showing off what appears to be a test of an exo-skeleton being used for deliveries, complete with a tower of packages on a man’s back, much like the way Sam Bridges chooses to deliver things.
There’s also the whole meta aspect of the fact that Death Stranding kind of mimics most people’s current lives. as we’re all sheltered away and are seemingly only connected by deliveries, but let’s not get into that here.
While we all wait for the PC release and for the ability to leave our houses again, check out our Death Stranding PS4 review.
