Rumor: Destiny 2 Coming to PC

Rumor: Destiny 2 Coming to PC

According to a new rumor circling neoGAF, Destiny 2 will be coming to PC, and both Vicarious Visions and High Moon Studios will be working on it alongside Bungie, also, Raid matchmaking will be included. Adding credence to this rumor is Kotaku's own Jason Schreier who claims that he has also heard about Destiny 2 coming to PC, along with the information about Vicarious Visions work on the title.

In his post, neoGAF user benny_a states that he knows someone who works at Activision, and that they saw a presentation on another person's laptop regarding this news. Alternatively, Jason Schreier heard earlier this year from a person familiar with Bungie's plans that the unannounced title was slated for the 2017 calendar, that it would be coming to PC, and that it would feel like a new game, stating:

Over the past few months, I’ve also heard that Bungie’s leadership wants Destiny 2 to feel like a proper sequel, even if that means leaving old planets, characters, and activities behind. In conversations with me, people connected to Bungie have made comparisons to Blizzard’s Diablo 2, which iterated on the first game in some incredible ways but didn’t carry over characters or content from Diablo. I don’t know exactly how much will change in Destiny 2, but all signs point to the developers starting from scratch. “D2 is a completely different game,” said one person familiar with development. “The Taken King was a reboot for Destiny 1 to fix small things. This is the overhaul to fix big things.”

One of the terms we’ll be hearing often with Destiny 2, according to sources, is “play-in destinations”—a new activity model that will revamp how Destiny’s world functions. The plan, from what I’ve heard, is for Destiny 2's planets to feel more populated with towns, outposts, and quests that are more interesting than the patrol missions you can get in Destiny.

Other rumored information coming from Jason says that characters from the original game will not carry over to Destiny 2, however Bungie may have some way to reward players who played Destiny 1.

Neither Bungie or Activision have yet to respond to these rumors.

really hope it is just a rumor, leaving Destiny (player) characters behind would be a bad move.

since they first started talking about the "TEN" year plan. since day one of that they have said your Guardians would follow you into all versions of destiny.

not too worried about a PC release, but think they should expect a massive backlash from the PC community if the game has the same limits as it does now. also think that 60fps or higher might even break the game. will have to wait and see i guess.

It's true pc gamer's have much higher standards, 60-144-165hz/fps, 4k, 21:9, multi monitor support, and the different hardware, But i actually think it would do well on pc, I actually think there is a nice open spot waiting for it.
