Destiny 2 has finally been announced last week for consoles, and the game will also mark the PC debut of the series. In the game's reveal trailer, however, there was no mention of Steam, leading to speculation that Activision is planning to launch its own client alongside the highly anticipated game. Thankfully, it seems like this won't be the case.
According to a report from Gadgets 360, Destiny 2 won't require an Activision client to run, as the game in development by Bungie will release on Steam. There's still no news on a possible Windows Store client, so there's still a chance that Destiny 2 could be an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
Last week, a GameStop employee shared a document by Bungie used by the developer to inform the retailer about the game. Bungie plans to fully reveal their vision for the new game in their own event dedicated to Destiny 2.
