E3 2017: Destiny 2 PC Release Date Confirmed For Almost Two Months After PS4/Xbox One

PC players will be in for a bit of a wait.


When we began to learn the details of the PC version of Destiny 2, it sounded as if it might not arrive at the same time as the console versions. In addition to announcing that it had moved up the release date for the console versions earlier this week, Activision revealed a different--later--release date for the game on PC.

Destiny 2 launches for PC on October 24. That's just under two months after it's due out on PS4 and Xbox One; those versions are now scheduled for release on September 6. Additionally, details of the beta were confirmed for consoles. The PC version will be getting a beta, but a precise date was not shared--we only know it's due out in "late August." Bungie has since explained why the PC version will take longer.

Now Playing: Destiny 2 Darkest Hour Story Trailer - E3 2017

Sony's E3 press conference brought with it a new trailer for Destiny 2, which you can check out above. It also revealed the PS4-exclusive items that will be available--there's a Strike, multiplayer map, and other content that will only be on PS4 until at least Fall 2018.

Although the wait is unfortunate for those on PC, the computer version sounds as if it may be worth the wait. It supports higher resolutions and framerates and will operate off of Blizzard's Battle.net platform.
