It’s not entirely unusual for a game, particularly one that’s highly anticipated, to spike in the Twitch views for a few days. But it seems that the latest game from Hideo Kojima, Death Stranding, has really blown the hinges off that door, as it managed to double the amount of views of the most constant highest streamed game in the land.
At one point, Death Stranding had over 182,000 viewers on the popular service. That puts it at almost double the current viewership for League of Legends, which is consistently the most streamed game on the service. Of course, this is likely to change quickly, especially since Death Stranding is a single player game with, as of now, no planned expansions or ongoing content, but it really goes to show the name power of Kojima and the hype surrounding this title that it managed to reach such a high number, even if it’ll only last a brief period.
Death Stranding is available now for PlayStation 4, and will launch in 2020 for PC. The PC version of the game actually just went up for pre-order, which you can read all about through here.
