At Apple’s WWDC 2023 presentation on June 5, 2023, Hideo Kojima appeared to announce the Death Stranding: Director’s Cut Mac port. After the game porting technology Apple is working on was announced, the head of Kojima Productions appeared with his reveal. There’s no release date yet for it beyond the latter half of 2023, however. Kojima also stated, “This is just the beginning, and we are actively working to bring our future titles to Apple platforms.”
Here’s a screenshot showing Kojima committing to future games, perhaps like Death Stranding 2, also coming to Mac like Death Stranding: Director’s Cut.
When discussing the port of his game for the Mac, Kojima also talked about some of the technology that will be used. He referenced Apple silicon and Metal 3, and specifically mentioned how they used MetalFX Upscaling.
As a reminder, Death Stranding debuted on the PS4 in 2019. PC and PS5 versions followed in 2021, with the Director’s Cut adding new content. There’s new equipment for Sam and new actions he can take while fighting. There’s also a roadster car to drive, either while traveling or on the new race track, and it added a Ruined Factory location.
Death Stranding is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and the Director’s Cut will come to the Mac later in 2023.
