Death Stranding release date has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is an original genre called ‘Strand’ and the first game to the genre. Death Stranding is an action game developed by Kojima Production and distributed by Sony Interactive Entertainment for Play Station 4. It was released in PS4 in November 2019 and the Microsoft PC version was scheduled to be released on June 2 this year. But due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the entire gaming industry is having trouble releasing games. Though employees are working distantly yet the development work is being disrupted due to the communication gap, lack of motivation, logistic supports.
The PC version of this game will be distributed by 505 Games while the initial release on PS4 happened by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Through a tweet, 505 Games has declared this delay saying, “Due to the work from home orders in place at #KojimaProductions, we’ve made the difficult decision to delay the PC launch of #DeathStranding to July 14, 2020. This allows the development team more time to finalize and polish. Thank you so much for the support, keep on keeping on!”
