Destiny 2 on PC: Release perhaps delayed, exclusive to Battle.net


Good news and bad news.

Destiny 2 has been confirmed for PC, but that doesn’t mean the title will launch at the same time as on Xbox One and PS4.

As part of an early morning reveal, Bungie announced that the PC version may lag a big behind console releases. The developer did stress that Destiny 2‘s PC version will have full keyboard and mouse support alongside custom key mapping and adjustable field-of-view settings. Up to 21:9, 3820×2160 monitor support will also be offered.

More interesting is that Destiny 2 will be the first third-party title available through Blizzard’s Battle.net service on PC. In fact, the title will be exclusive to Battle.net on PC.

Destiny 2 is expected on 8 September for Xbox One and PS4, though it’s not clear when the PC version will go live.

“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,” reads an FAQ on Blizzard’s website.

Users who pre-order the title will receive access to a beta; digital purchases will not receive a code for the beta, but you’ll be good to go when it’s available.

Stay tuned for more on Destiny 2.
