Death Stranding is easily the biggest PS4 exclusive to launch this year. However, following a sequence of updates to Sony’s official websites, the game might be coming to additional platforms like Xbox One and PC.
Many of PlayStation’s regional sites include extensive lists of PS4 exclusives. Ever since its original announcement, Death Stranding has been included on these lists. However, within the past few weeks, it has been removed from PS4 exclusive lists across all official PS4 websites. This suggests that Death Stranding may not remain exclusive to PS4 for very long. With this information, a future re-release of the game on PC or Xbox One no longer seems impossible.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Death Stranding has suggested a multiplatform release. All the way back in 2015, a community manager for Sony revealed that Death Stranding would come to PC following timed exclusivity on PlayStation. The statement has since been deleted, but the appropriate excerpt from the original Q&A can be found below.
