Rumor: Destiny 2 Will Come to PC, Totally New and Different Game
According to numerous sources and rumors, it seems that Destiny 2 will make its way to PC, in addition to the PS4 and Xbox One.
A NeoGAFF user benny_a reports that he knows someone from Activision, who just had it confirmed that the Destiny sequel will be on PC. The rumor also indicates that Vicarious Visions is aiding in development. This could make sense, seeing as Activision really only uses the VV team to help with Call of Duty games theses days, so why not do the same with Destiny?
This rumor lines up with another set of rumors that Kotaku just reported on. According to their sources, Destiny 2 will not only have the help of Vicarious Visions, but High Moon as well. The goal is to make Destiny 2 feel like a completely brand-new experience from the first game. Rather than overhaul the game in the way the The Taken King expansion did, Destiny 2 will change everything about the game, even if it means leaving behind some planets, characters, or additional content from Vanilla Destiny.
Destiny 2 is said to have what are being referred to as "play-in destinations", which will essentially make worlds more open and lively. Rather than going somewhere like the tower to take quests and interact with others, players will now find themselves in small hub worlds within planets to add a greater sense of liveliness and exploration.
Whats really important is to keep an eye on is how Bungie handles transferring player progress from the original game to the sequel. Back in 2014, when the game first launchd, Bungie made it clear that players would be able to bring their characters over for future installments. This may not be the case anymore, as it seems plans for Destiny 2 has been somewhat overhauled. Either way, Bungie will have to figure out something to satisfy longtime players, otherwise they'll probably face the backlash of the not-so-forgiving internet.
