Destiny 2 PC Will Be Releasing on Battle.net

Steam release won’t be happening it seems.

Instead of heading to Steam, Bungie’s Destiny 2 will be heading to Blizzard’s Battle.net service on PC. This will make it the first non-Blizzard game to use the service and require the launcher to play.

This announcement was made during the Destiny 2 reveal with Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime making an appearance by video. Right now, it’s still unsure whether the game will make use of dedicated servers like Blizzard’s Overwatch, Diablo 3 and various other titles. One thing’s for sure though – if you wanted it on Steam, it doesn’t appear to be happening.

From an Activision standpoint, this decision makes plenty of sense. Blizzard has a clear foothold in the PC market and using its own PC-centric service for Destiny 2 will allow for easier control.

Destiny 2 will be releasing on September 8th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. An open beta will arrive later this Summer so stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

    Does this mean cross-play between PS4 and PC? Don’t know if Destiny had cross-play before.
