The action game – which is the first game from director Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions after their disbandment from Konami in 2015 – was released for PlayStation 4 in November 2019, and was due to get ported to Windows PC systems in June this year.

However, the PC version of the game has now been delayed until July 14, after Kojima Productions were forced to send all of their employees home to work remotely in March, when one employee tested positive for COVID-19.

In a tweet, Kojima Productions apologised for the delay but stressed that the decision was made as a result of work-from-home orders and the change it brought about.

Developers wrote:

“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 (sic)”

‘Death Stranding’ was announced for the PC earlier this year, and will feature higher frame rates afforded by more powerful PC hardware, ultra-wide monitor support, and a photo mode.

The PC version will also include some crossover content with the ‘Half-Life’ franchise, with protagonist Sam Bridges – played by Norman Reedus – wearing a Headcrab in the announcement trailer.

The recently released ‘Half-Life: Alyx’ – which is a virtual reality (VR) game, and the first game in the franchise since ‘Half-Life 2’ in 2004 – also features a ‘Death Stranding’ easter egg.
