Death Stranding PC Release Delayed

Developer Kojima Productions, based in Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan, announced the delay on Twitter, stating its offices had temporarily closed in response to government orders. Staff continue to work from home, allowing progress at a rate slower than in-person work had afforded.

Kojima Productions and Sony Interactive Entertainment released Death Stranding for PlayStation 4 in November 2019 to widespread critical acclaim. The PC version is being published by 505 Games.
