You won't need a PlayStation console to play Kojima Productions' Death Stranding. While Sony is still publishing the only console version of the game, due next month, Kojima Productions and 505 Games announced today they are collaborating on a PC version of the title, due in the "early summer of 2020."

That may come as a surprise to some, given the way Sony has marketed the title for years now. Death Stranding was first revealed with great fanfare as a part of Sony's 2016 E3 press conference (then again, Shenmue III got similar treatment in 2015 but is also coming to PC this year). At that time, a Sony press release announcing the game noted that the company "will continue to expand the software portfolio with an attractive title lineup and deliver entertainment experiences that are only possible on PlayStation" (emphasis added).

Before that, Kojima described his first Konami-free game as a "collaboration with PlayStation" in a video with Sony CEO Andrew House, adding that he was "thrilled to embark on creating a new franchise with PlayStation." And the game's baffling 2018 E3 trailer led off with a large "Only on PlayStation" banner, which seems pretty hard to misinterpret.
