PC versions of games can be hit or miss, if they end up finding their way to PC in the first place. There’s no shortage of great PC exclusives, but sometimes when console games find their way over, they leave something to be desired. In the case of Destiny 2, the specs have been revealed and they’re showing some love to the PC, and planning to take their time to make it perfect.
Beyond the PC specs, we’ve got some new information about the game in general so make sure you make it all the way to the bottom…
It has been reported that Destiny 2 is going to be released through Blizzard’s Battle.net platform, and marks the franchise’s first venture onto the PC.

“We’re not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we’re totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can… Our partnership with Blizzard and being on Battle.net, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it’s a delicious piece of bread when it comes out,” revealed Luke Smith, the game director for Destiny 2, in an interview with IGN.
