Announced last week, the arrival of Death Stranding on Game Pass for PC couldn’t help but resonate with PlayStation players. However, it turns out that Sony has nothing to do with this decision.

Microsoft has been teasing for days that Death Stranding’s arrival in the Game Pass catalog for PC was finally officially announced by the publisher late last week. And if this news did not fail to please people, then it also caused a lot of ink among PlayStation players who do not understand why Sony allowed this when the license belongs to them. But in reality, it turns out that everything is a little more complicated.

Reaction to Death Stranding coming to Game Pass

Indeed, it is worth remembering that if Death Stranding was indeed developed in collaboration with Sony for the PlayStation version, then this is not the case for the PC version, which is published by 505 Games. In other words, everything that is directly or indirectly related to the latter depends only on Kojima Productions and 505 Games, and not on Sony, which “has nothing to do with this promotion,” as a Push Square representative could confirm.

True, this situation causes some bewilderment. But it does explain why the game created by Hideo Kojima is coming to PC with Game Pass on August 23rd (and not Xbox). However, this does not mean at all that other games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, God of War or Marvel’s Spider-Man will suffer the same fate in the future. The latter are proprietary to Sony in their own right and will obviously not be offered as a competing service.

So, see you tomorrow on the Microsoft platform to discover Death Stranding. Please note that this will only be the standard edition of the game and not the Director’s Cut released earlier this year with various additional content.
