We don't talk about Death Stranding very much here at PC Gamer because, as far as we know, it's going to launch as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. We hold out hope that it will come our way eventually—never forget that a 2015 Q&A released when Kojima Productions opened its doors said that the then-unnamed project would come to PC after a stretch on PS—but for now, well, it seems like a distant dream.
It may be slightly less distant than it was a few days ago, however. As noticed by vestan over on the Resetera forums, Death Stranding is no longer listed as a PS4 exclusive—and yes, it used to be: The Wayback Machine indicates that as recently as May 26, it was in the list of PS4 exclusives.
Beyond that Q&A from long ago, there are wispy threads of optimistic finger-crossing suggesting that Death Stranding will come to PC sooner rather than later, which we dove into a few months ago. On the whole, it relies pretty heavily on wishful thinking, at least as far as an imminent PC announcement goes, but on the other hand:
