As its gameplay experience has evolved, Destiny 2 has become far less of a game confined to a story or platform and more of a prime example of the games-as-a-service model with continual seasons and updates. As such, Bungie took the opportunity following the recent Inside Xbox Series X livestream reveal to confirm that Destiny 2 would be coming to next-gen consoles to keep the MMO first-person shooter fun (and sometimes frustration) going for the foreseeable future.
Bungie announced its confirmation of Destiny 2 for PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X in a response to Xbox via the official Bungie Twitter on May 7, 2020. Immediately following the Xbox Series X game reveal livestream, Xbox announced that “Hundreds of titles are already in development for Xbox Series X thanks to our amazing partner community.”
Bungie took the opportunity to confirm that it was indeed one of those partners and that Destiny 2 would not only be coming to Xbox Series X, but all next-gen consoles as well (meaning we can certainly expect to see it on PlayStation 5 too).

Bungie has been taking Destiny 2 in wild directions since the developer split from Activision, taking the Destiny franchise with it. Since then, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep has launched, bringing both a free-to-play edition in the form of New Light, and also season of weapons, cosmetics, and new content, the current season of which is the Season of the Worthy. Destiny 2 hasn’t been without issue solely under Bungie, but the game continues to keep a strong and passionate community about it and it looks like they’ll be able to follow the game to new consoles at the end of 2020, for better and for worse.
