is now available for preorder on both Steam and the Epic Games Store, confirming that it won’t be a platform-exclusive for either store.
It was announced for PC last week with a release window of “early summer 2020,” which lines up with the “Summer 2020” temporary release date listed on Steam and the “2020” date on the Epic Games Store.
As previously revealed as well, Sony will not be publishing Death Stranding on PC, with it instead being published by 505 Games. No rating or system requirements have been listed on either storefront yet.
Death Stranding releasing on both platforms comes in the midst of tensions between the two stores. Epic has been leaning heavily into a strategy around game exclusivity on its store, while Ubisoft recently said Steam’s business model was “unrealistic” for developers. That said, EA announced late last month that it would be returning to Steam.
