Death Stranding's PC release date has been delayed due to a Kojima Productions employee testing positive for COVID-19. The developers' office has been shut down as a precautionary measure, and employees are now working from home. The game will be available for everyone to play on July 14th.

After making its debut on consoles earlier last year, Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding was all set to make its way to PC on June 2nd this year. However, the game's release date has now been pushed back to July 14th due to an employee in the development team testing positive for COVID-19.

The information comes via the official Kojima Productions' official Twitter handle. The Tweet states that the studio had shut down due to the employee's condition. The company is in touch with local health authorities about reopening its studio, but it will be a while before that happens. In the meanwhile, employees have been directed to work from home, which, in turn, has delayed Death Stranding's PC release.

Death Stranding joins the long list of games that have had their release dates pushed back due to the ongoing pandemic. Thankfully, we still know when the game will be out. The same can't be said for a lot of titles such as the highly-anticipated The Last of Us II.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I got my first writing gig at the age of 19. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry and a few other publications like Wccftech before joining Notebookcheck in November 2019. I cover a variety of topics including smartphones, gaming, and computer hardware.
