After the PS4 and PC versions of Death Stranding, Kojima Productions’ latest work could release on the next-gen console of PS5. Akio Sakamoto was asked the relevant question in an interview.
Death Stranding first came on the market for the PS4. Today, the title will also join the PC platform. But what about the PS5? Is Kojima Production adopting the new console and developing a standalone PS5 version that goes beyond the simple downward compatibility of the next-gen console?
Technical Director Akio Sakamoto addressed this question and was asked about a possible PS5 version in an interview with Eurogamer. He initially emphasized that the developers initially want to concentrate on the PC version of Death Stranding. Only then a PS5 version could be possibly made.
The whole thing sounds like this: “Right now, we are really focused on the PC version of Death Stranding, so we can’t really say anything for the PS5,” said Akio Sakamoto. “But once we take a little breath after launching the PC version, we would surely like to look into it deeper, and hope to let everyone know once we come to some decisions.”
That sounds like players who may have been waiting for a PS5 version of the game can have hope. The PC version of Death Stranding will be released today, July 14, 2020. There are a few advantages over the PS4 version, which the director Yoji Shinkawa mentioned in an interview with Geoff Keighley.
Death Stranding is available on PS4. You can watch the launch trailer for the PC version below.
