At E3 2017, Bungie and Activision announced the Destiny 2 PC release date and changed the game’s release date on consoles.
Initially slated for a release on September 8 on PS4 and Xbox One, publisher Activision now announced that the Destiny sequel will release on September 6th, 2017. The game’s beta early access period for those who pre-ordered on PS4 will begin July 18 at 6 pm BST, while early access for Xbox One players will begin on July 19th at 6 pm. Following the pre-order early access period, the console beta will open up to all PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players on July 21st at 6 pm BST and will close at 5 am BST on July 23rd.
In addition, Activision and Bungie revealed that Destiny 2 PC will be released on October 24, and is available for pre-order right now via Battle.net.
“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 6th” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “We are also hard at work with our friends at Bungie optimising 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.”
Destiny 2’s PC beta is slated for late August, and more details will be released later on. Meanwhile, here’s a new story trailer.
