Death Stranding's PC Version Delayed to July

Death Stranding's PC Version Delayed to July

Delayed by just over a month.

Death Stranding was meant to be launching on PC in early June, coming to both the Epic Games Store and Steam. Today, Kojima Productions announced that the release date of the PC port had been delayed to July 14.

You can see the announcement from Kojima Productions in the tweet just below from earlier today. This comes in light of the "work from home orders" put in place across Tokyo, and Japan at large, allowing the team at Kojima Productions more time to prepare for the PC launch of their game as they transition to working from home.

The news unfortunately doesn't come as a huge surprise. In the past few weeks, Sony has indefinitely delayed the launches of The Last of Us Part 2 and Iron Man VR, and hasn't provided a revised release date for either title. Looking to later in the year, CD Projekt insists Cyberpunk 2077 is still on track for release in September, having just recently been submitted to ratings boards around the world.

It's worth remembering that Japan's CERO (Computer Entertainment Rating Organization) rating board was recently shut down indefinitely. Being the sole ratings board for the entire country, you've got to wonder how this will affect games launching in Japan for the foreseeable future, which Death Stranding on PC fits squarely into.

When Death Stranding does launch on PC, it'll come to both the Epic Games Store and Steam. You'll have access to the new photo mode on both platforms, but you'll get a special Half-Life Headcrab if you purchase through Steam.
