The PC rumor first popped up on NeoGAF today. This afternoon, a GAF poster named benny_a wrote that a friend at Activision had told him that Destiny’s much-anticipated sequel will indeed be on PC. The publisher informed employees about the news during an internal presentation today, according to benny_a. He added another interesting tidbit: that the Activision-owned studio Vicarious Visions is also helping out on Destiny 2. Although that isn’t public knowledge, I had heard the same thing a few weeks ago, which adds credence to benny_a’s report.
Earlier this year, I’d also heard from a person familiar with Bungie’s plans that Destiny 2, which is currently slated for a late 2017 release, will be on PC. This isn’t a shocker. Releasing Destiny’s sequel on PC will give Bungie access to a giant new potential audience, one that wasn’t around for the first game. Ditching last-gen consoles, which Bungie has already done for the recently released Rise of Iron expansion, ensures that they no longer have to worry about antiquated memory restrictions.
Twitter user @SenSnowy recently posted a photo of a receipt of sale for a pre-order for a Limited Edition of Destiny 2 for the PC, pre-ordered from GameStop Germany (via Reddit). The pricing for the same is about €110, which translates to about roughly $120. The same person has also stated that there may also be a separate Collector’s Edition.
We’ll find out for sure when the official announcement comes, of course, but this seems authentic.
Destiny 2 Limited edition PC 17th sept. 2017. 110€
