Activision Says Bungie's Destiny on PC Is a "Natural Fit"
But Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg also admits that "developing on PC is a different animal."

Bungie's upcoming shooter Destiny launches September 9 across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, but it sounds like another platform--PC--could be added in the future. Speaking with Polygon, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg acknowledged that Destiny sets up very well for PC, and even admitted that the publisher is having significant discussions about bringing the game to computer.
"It is [a good fit], and it's something we're talking about and looking at very carefully, and obviously it makes a lot of sense with the genre and the type of game it is," Hirshberg said. "No announcements, but it's something that's a heavy point of discussion."
Destiny is already confirmed for four platforms, and Hirshberg suggested adding another to that list would only create more complexity for the team at Bungie.
"You know, developing on PC is a different animal than developing for consoles and so we just want to make sure that we're putting one foot in front of the other and getting it right, and that it's of the highest possible quality," he said. "But obviously I see the same things about the natural fit."
Hirshberg's comments match up with much of what Bungie developers said in April about bringing the game to PC. At the time, Bungie COO Pete Parsons teased, "I look forward to our future conversations around PC. We love the PC. We hear it too. We ask the question ourselves."
Activision believes Destiny could become the company's next billion-dollar franchise. For more on the game, check out our coverage of Destiny this week from E3, including hands-on time with the game's much-anticipated competitive multiplayer mode.
