Destiny 2, the sequel to the popular first person shooter is coming to PCs, unofficial sources from within Bungie confirmed the same.
The information was first spotted on the NeoGaf forum where an employee who works with Bungie revealed the news. He added that the announcement was made during an internal meeting and the team is encouraged to put down their best for the PC version of the game.
The first iteration in the series, Destiny was exclusive to the consoles. It was available only on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. However, Bungie is not so happy keeping it only on the consoles and are keen to expand its horizons on a platform that is best fit for first person shooters. They also believe that it will give them great scope to cater the game to a whole new audience that will boost sales and longevity of the game.
Instead of trying to make a sequel that looks exactly like the previous iteration, the developers team is planning for a completely new game. It is supposed to feel unique and in the process they may also ditch some of the characters from the original game. Destiny 2 is expected to be similar to the Taken King expansion pack.
A lot of issues and glitches found in the original Destiny will be fixed with the new game. Bungie is keen to reboot the franchise by leaving the activities, characters and maps in the first game so that they could bring their vision to life. The overhaul will be big, confirmed reliable inside sources.
At the same time, the team is also supposed to offer something valuable for players who spent hundreds of hours playing Destiny on the Playstation 4, Xbox One among other consoles. They may not be able to carry the character progression to the next version of the title but an equivalent solution is to be made.
Bungie’s workforce with more than 750 employees will be working on the new game along with High Moon studios and the Vicarious Visions. Titles like Destiny 2, Halo 5 Guardians are best experience on a PC with a mouse and keyboard. They were constrained in the console platform for so long and we really hope PC gamers could enjoy such amazing titles on their favorite platform.
While Microsoft is not going to bring Halo 5 to Windows 10 PCs anytime soon but Destiny 2 is coming for sure.
