Xbox Might Be Teasing Death Stranding for PC Game Pass

The secret could lie in a new social media profile picture.

xbox might be teasing death stranding for pc game pass

Xbox's official PC Game Pass Twitter account may be teasing the arrival of Death Stranding on PC Game Pass.

Earlier today, the account changed its profile picture to a foggy landscape featuring grassy hills and rocks. After changing the photo, the account posted, saying, “sometimes we just like a good landscape picture #NewProfilePic”.

This afternoon, some eagle-eyed fans believe they've already uncovered the location within Death Stranding that the new profile picture was taken from, with user @naven0m posting the area in a reply… along with an image from the game of Sam Bridges urinating.

Most seem to agree that this is the correct location featured in the profile picture, meaning PC Game Pass is likely teasing a Death Stranding release on the service.

After originally launching exclusively on the PlayStation 4 in 2019, both the original Death Stranding and the Director's Cut have already come to PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Sony Interactive Entertainment did publish the PS4 version, but the PC version was handled by 505 Games. Inclusion on PC Game Pass would mark the game's first appearance under the Xbox umbrella.

Death Stranding is the first project from Kojima Productions following Hideo Kojima's breakup with Konami. The game stars Norman Reedus' Sam Porter Bridges, who trudges across a post-apocalyptic America delivering packages. Reedus seemingly leaked the existence of Death Stranding 2 earlier this year, although it hasn't been officially announced yet.

While the true meaning behind Xbox's tease isn't officially confirmed, we do know that Kojima and Xbox are working together for a project separate from Death Stranding. Earlier this year, Kojima announced a partnership with Xbox to create “a game I have always wanted to make.” We don't know much about the game yet, other than that it will include Microsoft's “cutting-edge technology”.
