Destiny 2 PC Release Date Isn’t Set Yet, But Does Have Lots Of Options

Unlike the PS4 and Xbox One versions, which were dated back in March, the PC version does not yet have a release date.

That’s according to director Luke Smith, who told PC Gamer, “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.”

As we learned today, Destiny 2 on PC will run through Blizzard’s platform. Smith noted that Bungie wants to make sure it gets everything right for Destiny’s PC debut. “Our partnership with Blizzard and being on, 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 explained.

Smith said that we might get some further clue as to when the PC version will launch in the “coming weeks,” but there’s no telling if we’ll get an exact date then or not.

Until now, it had been assumed to this point that the PC version would launch at the same time as the PS4 and Xbox One versions, so this news will come as a disappointment to fans. That said, some of the other PC details shared today were encouraging, like the fact that it offers support for 4K and uncapped framerates. In an interview with GameSpot, project lead Mark Noseworthy also detailed some of the things Bungie is doing to “give it the love and attention it deserves to be a great experience.”

“We’re PC fans ourselves, and we know PC players want the bells and whistles and they want all the sliders, they want all the things that are going to let them customize their experience,” he said. “We have a really robust options screen with tons of graphics options, and we’re going to support changing FOV, multiple aspect ratio resolutions–of course 16:9, 16:10, but even things like 21:9 are going to be supported.

“Remapping the mouse and keyboard is super important to players, so we’re supporting that. If people want to play on PC with a controller, because that’s how they grew up playing games and that’s how they want to play, so we’re going to support controllers as well, and hot plug-and-play between it and mouse and keyboard.”

Destiny 2 launches for consoles on September 8, with a beta to come before that. In light of this news regarding the PC version’s release date, we don’t know when a beta will arrive for that version, but we’ll report back as we learn more.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
