If you've been waiting for Death Stranding to hit PC, you may have to wait a little longer. Kojima Productions' idiosyncratic open-world delivery adventure has been delayed on PC until July.

This news comes via Kojima Productions' official Twitter account. Kojima Productions says that since it's had to temporarily close, the PC launch of Death Stranding has been delayed. This will, the company hopes, allow for more development time "amidst the current work-from-home orders in place". Earlier this month, Japan declared a state of emergency over the coronavirus epidemic, which has meant many developers and gaming companies closing their doors. 

 
 

Death Stranding was originally slated for release on PC on June 2nd. It was due to simultaneously launch on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and at retail. The PC version will include new features such as a photo mode, support for high frame rate options, and ultra-wide monitor support. At the same time as the release date was announced, Kojima Productions also revealed that the PC version of Death Stranding would include a crossover with Half-Life. You can check out the trailer for that crossover below:

Death Stranding is now slated for release on PC on July 14th. As far as we know, it'll still be launching on Steam and the Epic Games Store, as well as at physical retail. Of course, there's every chance that the game will be delayed again if Japan chooses to extend its state of emergency. We'll keep you posted.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
