PC players will have to wait a little longer to play Hideo Kojima’s latest masterpiece, Death Stranding. Initially a PlayStation 4 exclusive, Death Stranding was confirmed for PC and was supposed to release in June. Unfortunately, the game has been delayed by one month and will now release on July 14, assuming there are no further delays.

The announcement was made via the official Twitter handle. The tweet also explained that the delay is because of the on-going COVID-19 outbreak, which has forced the company to adopt a ‘work from home’ policy. This, while being necessary, has hindered the development of the game. Many big companies have adopted this policy out of necessity including Nvidia, CD Projekt Red, and Ubisoft. A couple of weeks ago, CD Projekt Red promised that their upcoming title, Cyberpunk 2077, is still on track and is not going to be delayed.

“Following the temporary closure of KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS, we have had to delay the PC launch of DEATH STRANDING to July 14, 2020, to allow more development time amidst the current work-from-home orders in place," the tweet reads. "Thank you all for your patience and continued support!”

This is a little disappointing as many PC players, including myself, were looking forward to playing the game with that sweet 60FPS. However, we understand that this is the need of the hour and completely support the devs.

Not much information has been revealed about the PC port of Death Stranding. We can obviously expect better FPS along with some other PC tweaks. Here’s hoping for some extensive graphics options. The game’s system requirements have also not been revealed.

We do know that the PC version will have a much better Photo mode along with the appearance of a Half-Life headcrab. This is not the only PlayStation exclusive title that will be coming to PC this year. Horizon Zero Dawn should also launch on PC sometime in Summer 2020.

COVID-19 continues to affect the gaming industry, with many events and conventions being canceled. Several games are also being delayed. One more highly anticipated PS4 exclusive title, The Last Of Us Part 2, was also delayed indefinitely with no new release date in sight. We will keep you updated if anything changes.
