The PC version will be published by 505 Games, who confirmed its involvement following Kojima Productions' Tweet.
The question of whether or not Kojima's latest would arrive on PC has been on many people's minds. When Hideo Kojima went independent, he announced a partnership with Sony that would see his then-unnamed next project arrive on PS4 and PC. Since then, references to the PC version have seemingly been scrubbed from the internet, leaving us to wonder if the deal had been changed.
Sony's official messaging about the game also hasn't been clear - likely intentionally. Death Stranding has been referred to as an exclusive in some cases, and a console exclusive in others. Indeed, some official PlayStation product pages do not list it as an exclusive at all, which is what recently caused an uptick in questions about Death Stranding's true status.
We're just days away from the game's November 8 launch on PS4. Look out for our review on Friday.
