Death Stranding did well for itself despite being divisive among critics and players. More than 10 million people have played the studio's first game, which was released three years ago today. The PC Game Pass is included in the milestone. It makes me happy to know that there are over 10 million Sam one players around the world.

It might seem obvious that a game from the creator of Metal Gear Solid would be successful, but it wasn't always the case. The film was a flop when it first came out. According to one ResetEra post from 2020, Sony was unhappy with the game's sales, with the author of the post claiming that 3 million copies of DeathStranding were sitting in warehouses as of March of that year. The critical re-evaluation of the game began after the Pandemic and the arrival of the PC. A lot of people found an experience that helped them make sense of a world that had changed overnight and the game had sold 5 million copies.

In an interview, actor Norman Reedus said that a sequel is in the works. The studio has begun teasing a game that will feature two actors.
