Death Stranding coming to PC in summer 2020

Kojima Productions: "Furthermore, KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS is happy to announce that DEATH STRANDING will be coming to PC in early summer of 2020!!"

The story is too old to be commented.

It was expected, but announcing it before the launch is surprising.

It's the fair thing to do. I doubt it'll have much of an impact on sales. At least people that absolutely want the PC version, now have the choice between waiting and double dipping.

DaReapa643d ago

They did a better job of announcing this than Rockstar did RDR2 PC.

I'll wait for PC version, too many games to try and get through across consoles and PC (even my backlog has a backlog) to double dip.

ps3rider643d ago

basically it tells PC owner. now you know its coming summer do still want to buy it on PS4

sprinterboy643d ago (Edited 643d ago )

I don't think the pc crowd would not play it because they now know its coming to pc nxt summer.
Imo it's one of them games which is day 1 was cause come nxt summer some article or d/head would have spoilt it by then with spoilers.
Edit: plus its one of them games like heavy rain that once you know the ending it'll spoil the game.

I was certainly not considering a PS4 for this game. Why waste the money?

SkatterBrain643d ago

cross buy ? that would be cool

I think this was not expected at all by many of this games most dogmatic defenders. I still have no plans to purchase it outside of maybe being able to critique it, but this announcement did make me laugh a bit.

"I still have no plans to purchase it outside of maybe being able to critique it, but this announcement did make me laugh a bit"

How can you be a critique if your not gonna play it by judging the game watching a youtuber? Like wtf is the world coming too

@sprinterboy

"I still have no plans to purchase it OUTSIDE of maybe being able to critique it"

Is the logic of that sentence lost on you or are you just pretending to be stupid? Do you not understand that I'm saying I don't have much of an interest in it, but I might purchase and play it in order to offer a critique? Do you interpret sentences that literally? If so you've got this glorious gem in your own comment:

"Like wtf is the world coming too"

@Vegamyster

Thank you for linking to the thread. Seems like the people putting up all the disagrees want to revise history a bit.

I always expected it, and I have quite a bit if faith in it.

Expected by the reasonable folks yes, but so many on this site and others were outraged at the suggestion or simply went around ridiculing people who felt it would have a PC release.

Not sure why they were so adamant it was a Sony exclusive as Kojima did say it would come out on PC at some point and, afaik, its original conception was prior to partnering with Sony for development but I could be mistaken.

Besides, Kojima just left a company that was apparently restricting his freedom so I doubt he'd have jumped into bed with Sony if it meant less gamers got their hands on his first, most independent project.

Now if only it will come to Stadia, please let it happen!

wheresmymonkey643d ago

Might do. I mean Stadia is pretty much just a bunch of PCs streaming games. It would all be down to what kind of contract Kojima has with Sony.

rainslacker643d ago (Edited 643d ago )

Stadia does not run on pc hardware. They run on data servers, which can vary in architecture, and they use their own high level api

Sony, or GG would have to specifically build a stadia version of the game unless google somehow makes it so pc releases can run on the service

MasterCornholio643d ago

Just play it on your PS4 or PC if you want the superior experience.

beulahland643d ago

PC is the only superior experience.

MasterCornholio642d ago

@beu

That isn't true. Any system that can play a game natively is superior to a streaming service. The addition of input lag and compression is what makes streaming services inferior.

Hope it never does. Stadia needs to fail in the sake of gaming.

TLG1991643d ago

Sad how just mentioning you want to play a game on 1 platform gets so downvoted. Same though, I have a PS4 PRO, a high end PC and i'm still getting stadia. I'm a dad and finding time is hard to game. Stadia will help me out with it a lot so F**k me for wanting to still take part in the hobby i've done my whole life.

sprinterboy643d ago

Maybe twds the end of ps5 gen but I wouldn't count on it, but money does talk and Google would surely try and pay over the odds.
Example; would Sony turn down 500m for the game to be on stadia say summer 2021/22?
Thats enough money to make another studio, buy out a studio, or put it twds 5 AAA 1st party games?

This is going to look even more breathtaking on PC
