Bungie Explains Why Destiny 2's PC Version Has Been Delayed
Earlier this week, Activision and Bungie announced a release date for the Windows PC version of Destiny 2, confirming that the PC release would be launched on October 24, which it’s about seven weeks later after it lands on PS4 and Xbox One.
During an interview with Polygon at E3, Bungie and Vicarious Visions revealed the reason why PC gamers have to wait a little bit longer than other players.
“The honest truth is we want it to land super solid,” Vicarious Visions’ Thomas Gawrys said at E3 today. “We want to meet the expectations of PC gamers — they have expectations for what they want and we want to make sure we hit as many of those as we can.”
“It really is as simple as ‘we want to get it right,’” said Bungie’s David Shaw. “That’s the reason there was no PC version of Destiny 1 is because we didn’t feel we could do it in a way that could honor the PC gamer and would really nail it. With Destiny 2, we had the team, we had the talent, we found great partners in [Vicarious Visions]. One more extension of being able to do it right is that we needed that extra bit of time.”
PC gamers will get access to the PC version’s beta sometime in August, Activision and Bungie announced this week.
