Death Stranding Has Sold Over 5 Million Copies

Death Stranding was launched on November 8, 2019 … and in little less than 18 months, it has amassed well over 5 million copies sold!

Taken from Engadget … Whatever you think of Death Stranding as a game, it was apparently a commercial success. Kojima Productions publishing head Jay Boor told GamesIndustry.biz in an interview that the sci-fi courier game has sold five million copies across PS4 and PC.

That’s not as strong as Metal Gear Solid V, which moved six million copies in just the first few months after its September 2015 debut. However, Death Stranding was also a brand new franchise that leaned mainly on Kojima’s reputation (plus some big-name actors) to reel players in. Five million sales is no mean feat in that context, especially when other legendary game developers have sometimes struggled without the support of their best-known development teams.

The timing for these figures isn’t a coincidence. The studio is using the sales numbers to build hype for the Death Stranding Director’s Cut coming to the PlayStation 5 in September. At the same time, they suggest Kojima Productions isn’t going away any time soon — at least, so long as Kojima’s fan base (and his keen eye for cinematics) remains intact.
