Launching September 6th for Consoles, October 24th on PC

Launching September 6th for Consoles, October 24th on PC - MMORPG.com

It's official. The PC version of Destiny 2 will be shipping on October 24th, 2017, roughly 6 weeks after it arrives on PS4 and XB1 on September 6th. Beta for the PS4 and XB1 begins on July 21st, with a PC beta beginning in August. Pre-orders are now live for the Battle.net PC version as well.

Our thoughts? Well, I played it on both PS4 and PC at the show. It's clear the PC version is immensely more playable, but for sure Sony and Microsoft will be happy they have a 6-week lead on the PC version (which I think will wind up being the bigger seller thanks to the built-in Battle.net support).

Check out the PS4 exclusive content trailer below:

Some quotes from the big-wigs:

"Everyone always says that they can't wait for fans to get their hands on their game. But we really mean it. Destiny 2 looks so awesome, I'm thrilled to announce that we are moving the release date up to September 6," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. "We are also hard at work with our friends at Bungie optimizing Destiny 2 for the PC, which we will be releasing in all its glory on October 24. And tonight, we are taking a deeper look at Ghaul, our villain in Destiny 2, who the world is going to love to hate. It's going to be a big week for Destiny fans." 

Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said, "For all of us at the studio, this is a humbling year to see the vision of the Destiny universe welcome its sequel, and for us, the most exciting part is to see what stories this amazing community will tell once it is in their hands."  He added, "We had an industry-defining moment at our Destiny 2 gameplay reveal in May, and at E3, the team is expanding hands-on to showcase a new subclass and will continue to highlight the vast variety of hands-on experiences that appeal to both solo and multiplayer gamers."
