Death Stranding has achieved sales over 5 million copies on PS4 and PC, which shows how Kojima Productions’ game has achieved very positive results on the market, also in consideration of its particularities in terms of structure and setting.
Also for this reason, the head of publishing of the team, Jay Boor, has defined himself optimistic about the possible sales performance of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut on PS5 , arriving in September. “With Death Stranding being the first title developed by Kojima Productions, we have to say that it has achieved quite positive results, from a sales point of view,” said Boor, obviously referring to the team as an independent company from Konami.
“According to data updated to March 2021 , Death Stranding has sold over 5 million copies worldwide on PS4 and PC”, which also makes us think positively about the performance of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, the new version announced for PS5 and coming September 24, 2021, as announced at Sony’s State of Play a few weeks ago.
According to reports from Boor, the PS5 version will also expand the multiplayer and social aspects of the original, or the particular Social Strand System that allows asynchronous interaction between players, creating a community linked to the game world.
Hideo Kojima has also criticized the name of the new version of the game, considering that “Director’s Cut” assumes that the original version was not designed according to the dictates of the author, which is not true.
