Activision and Bungie waited until after their Destiny 2 presentation to put out some further details about the PC version. At the event itself, there was just the news that the game will be using Activision-Blizzard’s Battle.net platform.
However, in a more text-heavy press release issued after the show, there’s a decent summary of what we can expect in the PC release. It’s an encouraging list, confirming many of the features PC players expect from a major release.
Expect an “uncapped frame-rate” and 4K (3820×2160) support. Ultra-widescreen users are taken care of too, as 21:9 support is specifically mentioned. No need to worry about the painfully narrow Field of View (FOV) shown in the Destiny 2 footage so far, because there’ll be an “adjustable FOV” too.
The game will also have custom key mapping and will, of course, be playable on mouse and keyboard. “Text chat” is in there as well. There’s also mention of a “detailed PC settings screen,” though no further specifics there just yet. Still, that’s a positive indication that the game will scale to different hardware to some degree.
It’s a list of features that says the right things so far. Destiny 2 has a release date of 8 September. It was assumed the PS4/PC release date would be simultaneous, but there now seems to be some doubt about that. We may be in for a delayed PC release.
