The PC release of Death Stranding has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The game is now scheduled to release on July 14. The news was announced in a tweet from Kojima Productions saying that the delay would “allow more development time amidst the current work-from-home orders in place.”
Following the temporary closure of KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS, we have had to delay the PC launch of DEATH STRANDING to July 14, 2020, to allow more development time amidst the current work-from-home orders in place. Thank you all for your patience and continued support!#keeponkeepingon pic.twitter.com/euOmebcdQj

It's not an enormous delay: the original release date was June. But it is another minor link in the chain of spooky coincidences that connect Hideo Kojima's latest and the world's current crisis ('Death Stranding Makes More Sense Now Than Ever'). I mean, at first I thought the parallels were just amusing, as well as showcasing Kojima's rather incredible prescience about the modern world.
