Destiny 2 PC release exclusive to Battle.net platform
Activision locks into the Blizzard ecosystem, PC release date not confirmed
Blizzard has announced that they are partnering with Bungie and Activision to release the PC version of Destiny 2 exclusively via Battle.net.
Being on Battle.net will allow Destiny 2 to plug in to the existing global network, freeing up the developers at Bungie. This also means Destiny 2 players will have access to Battle.net online social functionality, including chat with friends, the ability to see which of their friends are online in Destiny 2 or in Blizzard games, and the ability to stream gameplay directly to Facebook.
Bungie will maintain Destiny 2’s servers; Blizzard’s servers will be used for features related to the Blizzard platform, such as login and social functionality. Destiny 2’s gameplay customer service will be handled by Bungie; Blizzard will handle customer service for platform and shop issues specific to our service.
Other PC-specific details include a promise for 4K support, adjustable FOV, unlocked framerate, and more.
Blizzard is working with Bungie to bring the PC version of Destiny 2 to every region Blizzard currently operates in. However, this means that the PC release may potentially be different from the announced September launch for consoles. More details are promised soon.
