‘Death Stranding’ Arrives for PC Later than Expected – The New Release Date

Death Stranding is an open-world action game released for PS4 consoles last year in November, and it’s now awaited for PC as well. Fans were worried that they would never see a PC version of the game, but it turns out once again that life is full of surprises. The developers from Kojima Productions did a pretty good job by making Death Stranding as “an all-new, genre-defying experience”.

Death Stranding was scheduled to arrive at the fans as a PC version starting June 2nd, but Kojima Productions temporarily closed their office from Tokyo. And yes, you’ve already guessed the reason for the closure: the COVID-19 pandemic.

New Death Stranding release date: July 14

The release date gets postponed for over a month due to the harsh situation from Japan. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced the country to enter a state of emergency, and therefore many activities are getting closed or reduced.

The development company itself was the one that made the unpleasant announcement on Twitter:

Get the game via Steam

The game is already available for pre-purchasing on Steam, as the developers will keep working at it from their homes despite the pandemic. Priced at only 59.99 euros, Death Stranding has the following description:

“From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying experience. Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the disconnected remnants of our future in his hands, he embarks on a journey to reconnect the shattered world one step at a time.”

Hopefully, things in Japan will get better soon. Worldometers.info provides some info about the situation in the Asian country regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, there are over 11,000 people that got infected with the virus, while 1356 were recovered. Unfortunately, 281 infected people lost their lives.
