Death Stranding maybe gets a release on PlayStation 5, according to a new report. Wired revealed that PS5 (and PS4) lead system architect Mark Cerny mentioned the upcoming PlayStation 4 game might rather release on both that console and the next-generation of PlayStation.
While talking about PS5’s backwards compatibility, Cerny says the transition from PS4 to next-gen will be “gentle,” with many games launching on both platforms. When Wired asked how Death Stranding fits into all this, Cerny reportedly smiled and didn’t reply, before a spokesperson merely repeated the game would come to PS4.
The much-anticipated game is the next project from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima. It’s an open-world action game that comes with an optional online multiplayer component. Revealed at E3 2016, Death Stranding has become a game of much importance to fans of both PlayStation and Kojima himself, but we’re no closer to knowing even a vague release window.
The game sees you play as Sam Bridges, an employee for a secret organization who starts on a journey to meet a shattered world filled with deadly invisible enemies of unknown origin. His profession seems to be that of a delivery man of sorts, but the nature of the packages he transports remains unexplained.
