Walmart Canada has commented on the recent Death Stranding release date rumor that cites a launch next year.
Death Stranding is rumored for The Game Awards which will start on December 6. The release date being mentioned is also one of the rumors for the game, but there is no official confirmation about it.
Walmart Canada had recently listed Death Stranding’s release date as June 30, 2019. This appears to have been a simple placeholder as confirmed by Walmart Canada in a new tweet.
The tweet made by Walmart Canada was in response to a user which was asking confirmation of the release date. Of course, it is likely not going to come from Walmart, still, they stepped up and clarified that this was a mistake on their part and this is supposedly a placeholder release date for Death Stranding.
Sorry, our mistake. That date is a placeholder, there is no release date for this product.
