Kojima Productions has announced that the PC port of Death Stranding has been delayed due to the temporary closure of its Tokyo office. The game is now slated to be launched on 14 July 2020, more than a month later than its initially planned release on 2 June.
With Japan recently entering a state of emergency due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the temporary closure of Kojima Productions was inevitable. However, the studio assures fans that staff members are still continuing on Death Stranding PC’s development from their respective homes in order to meet its new release date.
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. Thank you all for your patience and continued support!#keeponkeepingon pic.twitter.com/euOmebcdQj

As previously reported, the PC version of the studio’s first video game title will support ultra-wide resolutions, higher-frame rates, and also a photo mode. Death Stranding will be released digitally on both Steam and Epic Games Store platforms.
The game is priced at RM239 and eager gamers can also opt to pre-ordered it. Exclusive in-game items as well as its original soundtrack will be rewarded to those who’ve pre-ordered Death Stranding on PC.
