Death Stranding: Sales of over 23 million euros on the PC

Death Stranding

In July 2020, Death Stranding was released for PC after Hideo Kojima's new game was available exclusively for the PS4 for some time. Publishing of the PC version was done by 505 Games. Thanks to the latest figures, we now also know how much revenue the Death Stranding PC port made.

The financial report from Digital Bros, the parent company of 505 Games, now shows that Death Stranding will be able to sell until December 31st .21 has turned over 23 million euros. This enabled the game to achieve higher sales than Control or Ghostrunner, which were also published by 505 Games. There are still no official sales figures from Sony of the PS4 version. Most recently, the company described the franchise as "record breaking". How many units are meant by this, however, remains unclear.

Numerous rumors surrounding Kojima Productions have surfaced in the past few weeks. Among other things, there was speculation about a PS5 version of the title, which should offer not only improvements, but also a story expansion. So far, however, there has been no confirmation of this. In addition, Hideo Kojima and his team should already be working on the next project, which could possibly be announced soon - at least if someone in charge of the development studio has its way. As a publisher, Microsoft is said to be under discussion. Kojima Productions might now switch to the Sony competition after Death Stranding.

Death Stranding Did Very Well On PC, Earning $27 Million

Death Stranding first found success as a PS4 exclusive, but the game has evidently done very well on PC, as well. Publisher 505 Games' parent organization Digital Bros has shared the game's impressive revenue figures in its latest financial report, and it dwarfs the company's other games.

For the year ending December 31, 2020, Death Stranding managed to earn more than €23 million, which is over $27 million. This is despite the game only releasing in July of that year, and put it significantly above the company's other major AAA games like Control and Ghostrunner for the year.

However, Control actually performed slightly better back when it came to PC in 2019, making slightly more money in a shorter amount of time. The difference is that Control released on PC at the same time as other platforms, meaning those who wanted to play the game on PC could do so right out of the gate. With Death Stranding, hardcore fans needed to get it on PS4 if they wanted to play right away, reducing their need to get it again when it did come to PC.

PC was Digital Bros' biggest digital platform in 2020, and it wasn't even close. It was responsible for more than 66% of its total digital revenue that year, with the PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo platforms only adding up to about 28% in total.

It remains to be seen what's next for Hideo Kojima and his team. One big change for the next game will be its composer, as veteran Kojima Productions composer Ludvig Forssell left the company in March following a 10-year stint that included work on Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
