The Death Stranding IP is owned by Sony, and I don’t believe QD purchased back the rights for BTS or Detroit. They talked to Sony, and they agreed. Why? This’s what I wanna know.It'll depend on who owns the IP. So, in the case of Bloodborne, AFAIK that's Sony, and subsequently there's not going to be a PC port unless From buys the rights off them. This would also apply to the games produced by studios Sony own (so, no Uncharted, Last of Us or God of War) On the other hand, I understand that Death Stranding is an IP that Kojima Productions own, and indeed the initial plan was for a PC version after a period of timed exclusivity. (As far as I know, this is the only example of such a deal for a large-scale game) Indeed, the PC port process started with Quantic Dream buying the rights to their games back from Sony, with the plan for a PC port.
