Destiny 2 on PC will run through Steam
New reports this week indicate that Destiny 2 on PC will be released through the Steam client, as opposed to a new dedicated system under Activision.
There was speculation that the publisher could be set to launch their own platform, much in the same way Blizzard employ Battle net for the likes of Diablo 3, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone and Overwatch.
Fans should note that this isn’t an official confirmation from Bungie or Activision and should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt.
It wasn’t until the official announcement trailer was launched by Bungie last month that we finally found out that Destiny 2 would not be a console exclusive.
Bungie have spoken more on the Destiny 2 launch, confirming that beta access will also be included.
“Destiny was the biggest launch of a new console video game franchise ever. Along with our incredibly talented partners at Bungie, we are focusing on making Destiny 2 even better, with state of the art first person action, an awesome new story, great characters, and thoughtful innovations that make the game more accessible to all different kinds of players," said Activision CEO, Eric Hirshberg.
“We're also bringing Destiny 2 to the PC platform for the first time. Destiny 2 will make an already great game franchise better than ever.”
Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said, “The past three years have been incredibly inspiring and rewarding for Bungie.
"To know that millions of players around the world have forged lasting Destiny memories and even made it their hobby is truly humbling and we can’t wait to continue the journey.” He added,
“We are looking forward to sharing a fresh, inviting story, and with the upcoming Destiny 2 Beta slated for this summer, we are eager to get feedback from millions of players around the world who will get a glimpse of the new adventures that will unfold for all of us.
"Together, with our partners at Activision, we are thrilled to get Destiny 2 in the hands of players in September.”
