At WWDC 2023, Hideo Kojima took the event to announce Death Stranding: Directors Cut coming to macOS, for later in 2023.

Kojima-san mentioned how he had been an Apple user since 1994, and he was excited to bring gaming to the Mac.

For those unaware, Kojima-san was at Konami for over 30 years, before being fired once Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was completed back in 2015. After creating Kojima Productions, Death Stranding was its first project, first released on Sony's PlayStation 4.

With Death Stranding 2 already in the works, Kojima-san clearly sees an opportunity on the Mac here.
