Rumour: Death Stranding Release Date Leaked By Walmart Canada

By Sam Quirke, 8 months ago
Walmart Canada kicked up a hype storm earlier in the year by leaking a whole bunch of games that were eventually announced during E3. It seems they might be at it again ahead of The Game Awards. We've been promised more than 10 game announcements and some game updates, and if the Walmart leak is anything to go by one of those is going to be Death Stranding's release date.

We will publish a full list of DEATH STRANDING Trophies once they are revealed.

According to Walmart's pre-order page (which, at the time of writing, is still showing the date), Death Stranding will be with us on June 30th, 2019. However things are slightly confusing as the Pre-Order button itself suggests that the ship date will be the following day, July 1st.

Either way, it looks like The Game Awards Geoff Keighley is either in on this "leak" or just made a very coincidental and unfortunate tweet:

Whether this is a planned piece of theatre or a genuine goof, it certainly now seems likely that we are getting a Death Stranding announcement at this year's Game Awards which take place on December 6th.
