Currently, the world is battling against coronavirus. It’s a deadly health pandemic that has put plenty of people on edge. From orders to stay at home and keep in isolation to certain jobs navigating towards working at home positions, there is plenty of video game studios being affected. We’ve seen the likes of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part 2 get delayed due to the virus despite development wrapping up on time to Square Enix being forced into launching their Final Fantasy 7 Remake early into certain markets around the world.
Now it looks like Death Stranding is the latest title to get forced into being delayed. Kojima Productions, the studio that was crafted up by Hideo Kojima after leaving Konami, have already released their debut title into the market. Death Stranding is available on PlayStation 4 but it’s slated to be released on PC within the summer.
Originally, it looked like it was going to hit the digital marketplace within June of this year. However, because Kojima Productions has transitioned into working from home, the studio has announced that the developers need more time to work on the game while away from the studio headquarters.
Announced through the official Twitter account for Kojima Productions, it has been unveiled the new release date for Death Stranding is on July 14, 2020. We’re curious to see just what all the PC port of this game offers in comparison to the PlayStation 4 release. Either way, if you have yet to try the game out and already own a PlayStation 4, then we suggest looking at our Before You Buy episode down below.
