Destiny 2 For PC May Come After Console, Bungie Says

Destiny 2 is getting released on September 8, but there is a chance that may be just the console version. The PC version is being listed as "coming soon" by Bungie.

"Bungie is committed to doing the PC version right, more news down the road on release date," Geoff Keighley tweeted from today's Destiny 2 event. He said that Bungie is saying the PC version is "coming soon," which may mean after September 8.

PC Gamer got a bit more out of Destiny 2 director Luke Smith: "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. 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." 

That is a pretty interesting twist for PC players, who are already having to digest the fact that the game is coming to the Blizzard Launcher service exclusively and will not be available on Steam. But at least that means you might not have to shell out any actual cash if you play World of Warcraft.

The other PC news is what players can expect when they finally do get their hands on the game (via VG24/7), namely:

  • 4K Resolution Support (3820×2160)
  • Uncapped framerate
  • Full mouse and keyboard support with custom key mapping
  • Text chat
  • Adjustable Field of View
  • Detailed PC settings screen
  • 21:9 monitor support

At today's event, PC's running the game had:

  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2Ghz
  • 16GB Ram/500GB SSD/Windows 10

The game was shown on 27" monitors, with Razer peripherals.

Of course, we will probably get more details at E3, and then as the game gets closer to launch. There will be a beta this summer, although with the current word on a delayed PC release, a PC beta may come after the console version, if at all.
