Kojima Productions may be working on an Extended Edition of Death Stranding coming out for PS5 and PS4 in the foreseeable future. At least that’s what a so-called insider claims.
At the moment the rumor is roaming the internet that Death Stranding will be released again as an Extended Edition. The PS4 and PS5 consoles could serve as target platforms.
The rumor was triggered by a statement in the Resetera forum. There the insider “Navtra” emphasized that those who have not yet played Kojima’s Death Stranding would be well advised to postpone the purchase a little.
“If you’re interested in Death Stranding but haven’t played it yet, it might be worth it to wait a lil bit,” says Navtra. When asked whether he was referring to a Death Stranding Extended Edition for PlayStation 4 and PS5, the insider only answered with a short but clear word: “Yup”.
Navtra also indicated that the Extended Edition will come up with new story content. A possible upgrade for the PS5 will therefore likely be chargeable. “Even if there’s an upgrade path I think it will be paid since there’s new story content in this version,” the insider said.
Such statements naturally raise hope in all those players who did not play Hideo Kojima’s rather strange project from 2019 but want to change this fact.
Elsewhere in the same thread, Navtra mentioned a possible PS5 patch for The Last of Us Part 2, which is allegedly on the plan or supposed to have been. He added that he would be surprised if Naughty Dog’s masterpiece didn’t get an upgrade.
“I know a patch was in the work at some point but I’m not sure if it’s still happening or when,” Navtra said when asked about a possible TLOU2 PS5 patch. “I’d be surprised if it doesn’t get a patch, though.”
Of course, with such rumors, it should always be noted that they do not have to have much to do with reality. However, PS5 versions of Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part 2 sound like something we can definitely expect in the coming months.
