E3 2017: Destiny 2 PC Release Date, and Scummy PS4-Exclusive Content
Destiny 2 will be making its way to PC on October 24, which is sooner than expected, so good for you, PC nerds.
As for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, they have been moved up to September 6. A pretty odd move, but I'm not one to complain about getting a great looking game sooner than expected.
However, I am one to complain about the scummy exclusive PS4 content release strategy. PS4 players will get the Lake of Shadow strike, new gear, a new weapon, and a PvP map a full year before they come to Xbox One or PC. Pretty lame.
I prefer to play my third-party games on my Xbox One, and will continue to do so with Destiny 2, but that's pretty lame of Bungie, Activision, and Sony to make a move like that. It's one thing when Call of Duty DLC comes out exclusively on one platform for 30 days, but to hold content back for a year is a really low move. By the time that content is out on Xbox One, I'll more than likely be done playing Destiny 2 until the next expansion when they inevitably make a similar move.
It's lame, it's very anti-consumer, but what can you do. These companies are trying to run their businesses, and sometimes that includes bending your fans over a bit. It's not the end of the world, just a scummy move.
Anyways, Destiny 2 does look super good. Check out the new trailer that was shown during Sony's conference.
