An upcoming PS4 game could arrive on PS5

The upcoming popular game that could arrive on both PS4 and PS5 is "Death Stranding." The information comes from an article by Comicbook where well-known analyst Michael Pachter makes the bold claim that instead of the game being an exclusive, it will be a PS5 game as well.

There has been no date for when the game will arrive, for now, some guess 2020 or 2019. The game certainly looks intriguing with its brand of horror attached to it that the studio is known for. This would not be the first time that the analyst has predicted the PS5 release as he has been adamant about it. Michael Pachter also believes in an article by Express that the "Xbox One X 2" is likely to release around the same time as the PS5.

All of these are rumors and are not 100 percent fact. Many have been thinking that a release is on the way for both systems because of the time.
