Destiny 2 developer, Bungie has said in a recent interview that the PC requirements won’t be huge and will be reasonable for most PC gamers. When asked if PC gamers would need to invest in expensive hardware to play Destiny 2, Bungie stated: “You absolutely won’t have to buy the latest and greatest hardware to be able to play the game and have a fun, quality experience.”
The PC version of Destiny is not actually being developed by Bungie, but Vicarious Visions is the team leading it onto the platform. This move raised a few eyebrows and stark memories of the Batman Arkham Knight move to hand over responsibilities to another dev team, but Bungie has assured PC gamers that the game will not be neglected.
One of the key factors we looked at when coming to PC is that we don’t want anybody looking at the game as a console port. We wanted to make sure that it feels like a PC game, it plays like a PC game.
So we kind of have embarked on an interesting situation. We’re not outsourcing it. Instead, we’ve developed this true partnership with Vicarious Visions in Albany, New York. We look at them as an extended part of the dev team.
Sadly, with the news that the PC release of the game will not be at the same time as consoles later this year. Destiny 2 is due to release on PC in early 2018. At least this means all of the day-one bugs/patches should be ironed out in time for the PC release. It was also revealed last week that Destiny will also not be on Steam, but actually apart of the Blizzard popular launcher, BattleNet. Destiny 2 releases on PS4 and Xbox One on September 8, 2017.
