Death Standing’s PC Release Delayed A Month Due To COVID-19 Precautionary Measures For Development


Fans of Kojima Productions’ PC version of Death Stranding will have to be patient for just a little longer. Due to the circumstance involving the novel coronavirus urging companies to issue work-from-home alternatives across the globe, this new precaution has resulted in partial delay of development for upcoming games. However, this prolonging of efforts sourced from the taken measure results with anticipated projects shifting their release dates to a later time.

This can be said more specifically for Death Stranding with was initially slated to arrive this coming June, but has now been ushered to the following month of July to properly capture the vision the team envisioned for the respected port to PC.

This happens to be a direct outcome that was established by the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who declared that all businesses be required to adopt working from home for all employees for the duration of a month. This then trailed to an announcement from the Computer Entertainment Rating Organization (CERO), Japan’s ESRB essentially, which disclosed that the group will be unable to properly rate upcoming projects for the affected timeframe.

Not only will the new announcement from Kojima Production potentially withhold the respected PC iteration of Death Stranding from fans, but it will also interfere with the previously announced Photo Mode for the game on PlayStation 4 as well. The feature was introduced from the upcoming keyboard & mouse port, so it was expected the implementation would arrive simultaneously as the PC release.

In other PC-related news for Sony Interactive Entertainment, a slew of fake leaks broke out recently telling that games like Days Gone, Persona 5: The Royal, and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection would be arriving to PC via Amazon France. You can read the full debunking by heading here.
