Destiny 2, the much anticipated sequel to Destiny, has already been given a release date of September 8. Unfortunately, that release date seems to only be for the console release, and the PC release will come sometime after the console version of the game hits shelves. Of course, when exactly it will be released is still a mystery.
Destiny 2 director Luke Smith has confirmed this delay and has admitted that the PC release date has not even been set as of yet.
“We’re not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we’re totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can,” Smith said. “Our partnership with Blizzard and being on Battle.net, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it’s a delicious piece of bread when it comes out.”
He also added that while he cannot confirm exactly when the PC version will drop, he hopes to have the date set “in the coming weeks.”
Even scouring the web you will be hard pressed to find much information about a potential PC release date. Even Blizzard’s official FAQ only says, “We’re excited to work with Bungie to bring the PC version of Destiny 2 to every region Blizzard currently operates in. Bungie is actively working through the global details. We look forward to sharing additional information later this year.”
While this is disappointing news for PC gamers, it’s not unheard of. It seems lately many games will drop for consoles first before they come to the PC. Hopefully, in the case of Destiny 2, we won’t have to wait too long.
Destiny 2 is an upcoming online-only multiplayer first person shooter that is being developed by Bungie as the official sequel to Destiny. The sequel was first mentioned back in November 2014. Unlike the first version, Destiny 2 will be getting a PC release and it was confirmed back in March 2017, even though we know now that we will have to wait for it to come out.
Check out the trailer below:
Unlike the first version, Bungie plans on making it much more of a social activity. You will be able to form groups in a lobby instead of having to look to third party sources in order to access some of the content. This is a bonus to solo players who had difficulty finding groups to access some of the content in the first game.
What do you think about the news about this new sequel to Destiny. Are you disappointed that the PC version of the game will be delayed or are you glad they are taking the extra time needed to develop the game for the PC platform?
Tell me your thoughts and whether or not you plan on playing Destiny 2 in the comments below. Personally, I’m okay to wait a little while to get it on PC. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait too long.
