A while back Death Stranding caused confusion after the game was not listed as a PS4 exclusive across its official boxart as well as the special and collector’s editions of the game. We know Kojima plans on releasing Death Stranding on PC at some point but now everyone is even more confused after the “PS4 exclusive” sign has been put back onto the game’s marketing.
At Gamescom, Kojima revealed three new trailers for the upcoming game and soon after, Kojima posted a photo on Twitter standing in front of the game’s banner. The “only on PS4” sign is quite clear. Now, this could mean a few things. It could be old marketing before the previously-removed versions were published. It could also mean it is a PS4 console exclusive meaning no Xbox version.
It could also mean the game is now a PS4 exclusive but we doubt it. Chances are this banner is just old material and the game will indeed be releasing on PC at some point.
Sony could also be publishing it on PC themselves as the company began releasing PC games a while back with ReadySet Heroes being a recently-announced title to hit the Epic Game Store for pre-order. The game is also a PS4 console exclusive and a PC game. This being a similar situation as Death Stranding.

Whatever Kojima Productions are planning for Death Stranding, we know the game is releasing on 8 November only on PS4 first. If the title is in development for PC, it will be a while before we see it land on the platform. Perhaps even a year or so? We know the game will never release on Xbox as it is being built with Sony’s help as the publisher and the console maker has no plans to publish games on Microsoft’s platform.
