It turns out that Death Stranding may not be exclusive to the PS4 after all. Sony has removed the Hideo Kojima-directed title from its list of PS4 exclusives. This was discovered by eagle-eyed members of popular gaming forum ResetEra. With the Death Stranding PS4 release date of November 8, it’ll be interesting to see if a PC release is planned somewhere down the line.
”Death Stranding was originally announced for PS4 and PCs, here’s an archived official press release from Sony THEMSELVES prior to the game’s announcement (when they announced their partnership) in Dec 2015 just so you know I’m not messin,” claims ResetEra member Vestan who discovered this change.
Considering Epic Games has not shied away from moneyhatting PC exclusivity, we won’t be surprised if Death Stranding finds its way to that storefront in the event this does come to fruition.
Right now however, if you want Death Stranding, the PS4 version is the only one you can pre-order.
