There's a chance that they could pull out of the Sony deal now MS own them.

There is absolutely no chance of that.

There's nothing to stop them from sticking it straight into PC Game Pass, is there? 

Dunno. Is there also some epic store exclusivity?

Death Stranding didn't come to PC until later. That might be because of the size of the team developing it (being able to fully focus only on one version), but after the PC version was accidentally announced Sony sure was quick to remove any and all mention of PC shenanigans. It sure looked like they wanted temporary exclusivity across all platforms including PC, so that might also be the case in the Deathloop deal. Who knows.

Can I stream from my PC to my Xbox yet?! :-D

Or just use your smart TV and download the steamlink app and pair your Xbox controller to your TV. Tried this in my ageing Sony TV in the lounge and worked a treat. Although best using wired network connections although to be fair worked well enough on 2.4ghz WiFi.

(I have a steamlink lying around, and my PC is currently plugged into my TV: it was quite tongue in cheek).

Alas, this has been delayed:

 

 

Here's hoping the "while ensuring the health and safety of everyone at Arkane" means "we're pushing back the launch date to avoid crunch"!

Aw man, that's fairly disappointing. I basically spent the first quarter of the year desperately scrabbling about for a PS5 so I could play this. 

:lol:

 

But yeah, hopefully as Wiper says this means a better working environment for the employees. And I can just about wait another couple of months if it means people actually get to see their families.

Getting on for a year after the initial planned launch. Clearly nowhere near ready, and the right decision has been made to delay it again. Take as long as you need.

It’s a story we will hear again and again thanks to COVID. 
 

it’s been hell, imagine all the coders working at home with young kids and the like. If it’s anything like my lockdown, I’ll be impressed if it even compiles. 
 

give them the time.

So many games are being released buggy and broken at the moment, that it's difficult to be upset about this. It looks like a game that they have to precisely balance the difficulty and design if you're going to be maddening to play through scenarios again and again.

I nearly pre ordered it last night because I’ve decided to go on an Arkane binge to see if I can find the genius so while I had this down as a purchase for may I don’t mind waiting. Glad I didn’t pre order.
