Destiny 2 PC Launch Coming After Console Release

The news that Destiny 2 is coming to PC has been received with much joy and praise. Sadly, it seems that PC players will have to wait longer than console owners to get their hands on the game. So far, there hasn’t been any official launch date announcement; the only thing that is certain is that it won’t happen before September 8th.

When will Destiny 2 come out on PC?

The Destiny 2 release date has been officially confirmed for September 8th. However, as it turns out, that’s when the console version will launch. The PC version doesn’t yet have a launch date. We only know that they’ll announce a release date “in the coming weeks”, according to Destiny 2 game director Luke Smith (via PC Gamer). He also said:

We’re not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we’re totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can. Our partnership with Blizzard and being on, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it’s a delicious piece of bread when it comes out.

Bungie’s partner in bringing Destiny 2 to PC, Blizzard, also doesn’t have anything concrete to say about the launch date. This news has PC players worried about their prospects of getting access to the Destiny 2 Beta. Sure, Bungie has stated that everyone will have a chance to give Destiny 2 a spin before launch. And sure enough, early access is still on offer for those that preorder the game, PC included.

However, as PC Gamer pointed out, this is no guarantee (as the Mass Effect Andromeda Beta has shown). All the retailer listings for Destiny 2 still say that the PC version is coming out on September 8th, and now we know that it’s little more than a placeholder date. All the details regarding the Beta are still TBD. We’ll all just have to wait and see what happens.
