Destiny 2 Updates Will Arrive Simultaneously for Consoles and PC
Destiny 2 is scheduled to finally release for PC tomorrow, about two months after the highly anticipated sequel launched for consoles in early September.
The gap between the platforms made it natural to assume that future updates are going to arrive first on consoles. However, Bungie has clarified that such will not happen.
Speaking with PC Gamer in a recent interview, lead developer David Shaw confirmed that Destiny 2 will receive updates simultaneously on all platforms from here on. There will be no exclusivity period of any kind.
“Beyond that, once we get through that window of intentional staggering of content, when DLC 1 comes out, when DLC 2 comes out, all of those will be day and date with PC,” Shaw revealed.
Trials of the Nine had to be delayed because of a glitch but it will return to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the same day, November 3, when it comes to PC for the first time. The parity across all three platforms is welcoming because one set of players will not have to wait it out before accessing content that others are already enjoying.
Elsewhere, community manager David “DeeJ” Dague confirmed earlier today that Festival of the Lost will not be taking place this year for Destiny 2. The ongoing season is currently focused on the launch and the special in-game events will begin with The Dawning in December.
Destiny 2 is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The sequel releases for PC in a matter of hours, armed to the teeth with exclusive features that depend on the power of your desktop system.
