Death Stranding will not make its June 2020 release date on PC. Kojima Productions announced on Twitter that the studio had to close during the COVID-19 pandemic which caused major delays during the production pipeline. Luckily the game has only been delayed by one month.
While the developers at Kojima Productions still worked at home during the outbreak, it did slow down the development of the PC version.
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

Kojima Productions has yet to reveal the Death Stranding PC requirements. The game was already a visual showcase on PS4 so there will no doubt be massive improvements to the PC release including higher frame rates and resolutions. The Death Stranding PC requirements may dip into the high-end specs but we will have to just wait and see what happens.
We reviewed the game last year on PS4 and loved it. We gave it a 10/10. You can read our full review here and watch the video review down below. We also know that the game will launch on Steam with Half-Life content including some cosmetic items like a headcrab.
