Hideo Kojima’s current project Death Stranding has been a more unique and vague project that many fans have been anticipating since the game’s reveal back in 2016. As more information continues to release on what the plot is revolving around the upcoming game, it also continues to fuel the joke of understanding the story less with each new detail.
As it was previously reported that the development for Death Stranding might be behind schedule for the game’s unannounced timeframe, more recent news have emerged possibly revealing that the forthcoming title could be just on the horizon for the next generation console from Sony.
Upon the news that broke today circulating around the official specs for Sony’s PlayStation 5 from Wired, the exclusive article also detailed that Kojima’s first self-published game could share the title’s release with both the current and upcoming PlayStations.
Here’s the excerpt sharing that Death Stranding could be coming to both of Sony’s platforms:
As in many other generational transitions, this will be a gentle one, with numerous new games being released for both PS4 and the next-gen console. (Where exactly Hideo Kojima’s forthcoming title Death Stranding fits in that process is still unconfirmed. When asked, a spokesperson in the room repeated that the game would be released for PS4, but Cerny’s smile and pregnant pause invites speculation that it will in fact be a two-platform release.)
This isn’t a confirmation on the game’s official release, but this does set a foundation for when players could expect the highly anticipated title. Since the game continues to share only glimpses of what’s to be available in the full version, it’s difficult to determine when Kojima is fully prepared to officially drop the title.
Death Stranding currently does not have a set launch date, but the title is currently listed for PlayStation 4.
