Death Stranding: Director’s Cut may soon be available on PC as well. This is suggested by a series of internal updates visible in the Steam Database portal, which unofficially confirm the development of a patch of important dimensions. NVIDIA had anticipated the release of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut on PC with the leak in the GeForce Now database. Now we know for sure that Kojima Productions is back after a ten-month hiatus to work on the game’s PC version.
According to a Reddit user, the work began on September 1, 2021, three weeks before the game’s launch on PlayStation 5. The latest update dates back to today, October 13, 2021, so the studio is still working on the update. Of course, it could be another Cyberpunk 2077-style crossover, but the timing is rather curious, and production times suggest a rather substantial update.
Death Stranding: Director’s Cut is the definitive and improved edition of Death Stranding, the first game from the independent studio of Hideo Kojima. The upgrade has a low cost, equal to about € 10, and introduces new game mechanics, a new area to explore, and some improvements to the quality of life.
Death Stranding’s PC market proved to be quite profitable, with at least half a million copies sold over the first eight months of launch on Steam. However, the Director’s Cut had been presented as PlayStation exclusives, so it will be interesting to find out if Sony intends to get so close to PC users or not.
