Last month, the title was already listed as a multi-platform game by the Australian Rating Board. More interestingly, back in 2015, Sony even acknowledged that the game would also be released on PC, but the blog post in which Sony mentioned this was later deleted. In addition, the FAQ section of this particular post mentioned that the Death Stranding was "planned" to become available on PC following the PS4 version.
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today announced that it has signed an agreement with Kojima Productions, a newly formed studio by the acclaimed game designer Hideo Kojima, to develop its first software title as a console exclusive to the PlayStation®4 (PS4™) computer entertainment system.
Death Stranding will be released globally next month on November 8 for PS4. The 'stranding' game was officially announced by Hideo Kojima during Sony's 2016 E3 press conference.
