Good news for all Windows PC gamers: Bungie has officially confirmed that Destiny 2 will arrive on PCs on September 8. This much-anticipated sequel takes players on an epic journey across the solar system. Humanity’s last safe city has fallen in the hands of the brutal Red Legion. The city’s Guardians no longer have any power, and survivors have fled.
As a player, your mission is to reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to defeat the Red Legion.
Now that we know that Destiny 2 will be available on PCs this fall, there is still one question that remains unanswered: will Bungie and Activision release the game as a Play Anywhere title?
Destiny 2 — an Xbox Play Anywhere game?
Xbox Play Anywhere is a new Xbox Live feature that allows you to digitally buy your favorite game once and play it across Xbox One and Windows 10. Your progress, game add-ons, and achievements will be saved on your Xbox Live account and then shared across both platforms at no additional cost.
Bungie has not yet confirmed whether Destiny 2 will be released as an Xbox Play Anywhere title or not, but many fans hope this will happen.
With Destiny 2 announced for PC to it’d be huge if Microsoft pushed for it to be a Play Anywhere title
Sony can keep the exclusives, but being able to buy a digital copy of the game and play either on pc, Xbox or Scorpio when it’ll come out would be huge!!!Is there any way this could happen? Or anything that would contrast it? I’m not talking about cross platform gaming, just the play anywhere option. Even being able to keep my character / loot / progress while switching on between Pc and Console would be amazing! Just sing in with same gamer tag.
Actually, many players said that they would only buy Destiny 2 if it’s a Play Anywhere title. However chances that the game supports the Play Anywhere feature are pretty slim to none. First of all, Destiny 2 is a major title, and Sony won’t give up its exclusivity deals and the chance of being the premier platform of choice.
As some players already pointed out, Activision would prefer players to buy the game twice. There are many gamers willing to switch platforms to play with friends. Also, the Windows Store is not exactly the most popular game store.
Moreover, other players don’t think that releasing Destiny 2 as a Play Anywhere title is a good idea, suggesting that PC players with their mouse and keyboard controls would have the upper hand in the game.
What do you think — what are the chances of Destiny 2 arriving as a Play Anywhere title?
