Kojima Productions has announced an impressive milestone on the third anniversary of the release of Death Stranding, which has seen 10 million players step into the wretched boots of protagonist Sam Porter Bridges, along with the Death Stranding director’s cut.

Death Stranding first launched on PlayStation 4 on November 8, 2019, and arrived on PC on July 14, 2020. The extended Director’s Cut received an original PS5 port, which arrived on the platform on September 24, 2021, as did this version. Earlier this year, on March 30, 2022 on PC. It’s worth noting that the 10 million number takes into account players able to access the game as part of subscription services like PlayStation Plus and PC Game Pass, which is nothing to take away. Accomplishment, probability is an important number.

With such a strong reception, a sequel seems inevitable, and speculation has hit a fever pitch in recent days. This is especially impressive when you consider the nature of the game, a post-apocalyptic delivery simulator with a mechanical focus solely on walking, a task most gamers take for granted. Then consider the fact that the game was launched on the eve of the COVID-19 pandemic and the specific themes we will all know well, such as loneliness and the desire for connectivity.
