Death Stranding: Game Coming Soon to Xbox Game Pass

Yesterday afternoon, the page of PC Game Pass on Twitter published an image that has left many people intrigued. The post in question was concerned with the exchange of profile image on the network, and apparently it may be an indication that Death Stranding is on its way to the subscription service catalog.

“Sometimes we just like a good landscape image”, says the post on the social network, accompanied by a screenshot. Twitter users didn’t take long to discover that such a landscape can be found in the PlayStation exclusive — which seems to be a strong indication that the game may even reach PC Game Pass. Why else would Microsoft post an image of a rival exclusive, right?

Below you can see the exchange of messages on the social network:

Still without any confirmation, fans are trying to understand the situation. After all, at least in theory, Death Stranding is owned by Sonywhich owns the title’s copyright alongside Kojima Productions.

As the post was made specifically on the Game Pass profile for PC, without any mention of Xbox, it is possible that the game will be added to desktop service catalog only. That way, Hideo Kojima’s game would remain a PlayStation exclusive on consoles.

In April of this year, journalist and insider Jeff Grubb posted the following screenshot of the PC version of the game on Steam, signaling who has the rights to the product.

As seen in the image, Sony owns the rights to Death Stranding alongside Kojima Productions and Hideo Kojima, with distribution of the game on computers being handled by 505 Games. It is worth remembering that the Xbox Game Studios announced in June that it had closed a partnership with Kojima’s studioso it is possible that the launch of the title on Game Pass is the result of this collaboration.

As Hideo Kojima Confirmed at Gamescom 2022, hopefully we will have more information on the subject in the coming days. The event will take place between August 24th and 28th in Cologne, Germany.

Originally released in November 2019, Death Stranding has versions for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC.
