Hideo Kojima has been teasing the upcoming game Death Stranding for a few years. We’ve seen several trailers and teasers for the game so far, but as far as a release date for the game itself, that remains a mystery. Though many seem to be hopeful that a 2019 release is happening.
But Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter thinks differently. Speaking to GamingBolt, Pachter seems to believe that Death Stranding might launch in 2020 and be released for both the PS4 and PS5, and also that it could end up being a game that bridges both console generations. The PS4 and PS5.
Pachter says, “It’s hard to know with Sony. Their [E3 2018] showcase was really hard to figure out, and they didn’t talk at all. My bias is that they [the PS5] will also launch in 2020, so no reason to announce any current generation exclusives other than the ones announced so far. Death Stranding will likely be a cross-generation title.”
Sony has kind of acknowledged that they are already working on the PS5, and that the console is at least 3 years away. So it could arrive in 2021 at the earliest, so who knows. We are just going to have to wait and see what happens.
