The news that Destiny 2 was coming to PC would have been a delight to many players on that particular platform. With good news comes better, as a release date for when the PC version will be released, with the launch set for October 24th, just over a month after its release on consoles.
For PC gamers who opt to purchase the highly anticipated sequel on Windows, you’ll be waiting 46 days for the privilege to play Destiny 2 on the only platform which supports both visual customizations and unlocked frame rates. The release date for the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 meanwhile has been brought forward, now releasing on September 6th in stead of September 8th.
For console players, the beta will be available from July 21st at 10am PT for those who don’t intend to pre-order the game. Pre-ordering Destiny 2 will grant you access a couple of days earlier on July 19th on Xbox One and July 18th on PlayStation 4. Either way, you’ll be granted 60 hours of free beta time to play around with. PC players meanwhile will be granted a beta period, though Bungie hasn’t confirmed what date it’ll be available.
The PC version of Destiny 2 simply won’t be ready in time for its launch on consoles as previously stated after the game’s announcement, something that was confirmed by Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision:
“We are also hard at work with our friends at Bungie optimizing Destiny 2 for the PC, which we will be releasing in all its glory on October 24”
