Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding caused strides across the gaming community back when it launched. Though most people were divisive over whether to call it a “walking sim” or not, one cannot deny the game to not have brilliant characters and story. Part of that credit, of course, goes to the star-studded lineup of actors.
However, the title never made its way to anything Xbox, which makes sense seeing PlayStation helped to create the title and market it, while 505 games took care of the PC version. A new tweet by the PC Game Pass Twitter account indicates that things are about to change.
Earlier yesterday, the PC Game Pass Twitter, posted a very vague tweet, informing everyone that they “just like a good landscape picture,” which I respect. Everyone loves a great landscape picture. What makes this tweet strange is that right along with it the account changed its profile picture to a landscape picture.
sometimes we just like a good landscape picture #NewProfilePic

A closer look at the profile picture will make anyone believe that the image is from a shot in Death Stranding. The colour tone, landscape, and even the stone look very eerily similar to the game. One Twitter user in the comment also pointed this out with a side-by-side image comparison.

It is interesting to note Death Stranding’s IP, copyright, and trademark is owned by Sony, as pointed out by Jeff Grubb. So, we are yet to see whether the game will make its debut on PC Gamepass or not.

Recently, Hideo Kojima has been busy editing a trailer for something. Maybe in anticipation of the PC Gamepass release announcement? The only thing we can do is wait and watch as things slowly unfold.
Earlier in June, Hideo Kojima announced his partnership with Xbox Studios for his next game. Gamers can currently play Death Stranding on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
