This could be a fun game. I played D1 on the PS4 for a little bit. And it will be using Battle Net.
 

 

Destiny 2’s PC version will come to Blizzard Entertainment’s Battle.net, the platform that serves as the “central nervous system for Blizzard games,” Bungie, Activision and Blizzard revealed today.

 

Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, and Mike Morhaime, president of Blizzard Entertainment, announced during a livestream today that Destiny 2 will be available “exclusively” via Battle.net on Windows PC.

“We thought it would be a great opportunity to bring the Destiny community and the Blizzard community together,” Morhaime said.

Traditionally, Blizzard’s Battle.net platform has been the sole domain of the developer’s own games: World of WarcraftHearthstone, StarCraft, Diablo and Overwatch. The tech serves a number of functions, including multiplayer matchmaking, voice chat and game purchases. Blizzard dropped the Battle.net branding earlier this year after more than 20 years, though Morhaime continued to refer to the platform by its previous name, presumably due the brand’s familiarity.

 

Destiny 2 will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept. 8. The game’s Windows PC version does not have a confirmed release date.

Update: In an official news post, Blizzard revealed more details about its partnership with Bungie.

“Being on Battle.net will allow Destiny 2 to plug in to our existing global network, freeing up the developers at Bungie to focus their energy and resources on making the best and most fun game they possibly can,” Blizzard said. “This also means Destiny 2 players will have access to our online social functionality, including chat with friends, the ability to see which of their friends are online in Destiny 2 or in Blizzard games, and the ability to stream gameplay directly to Facebook.”

 

The addition of Destiny 2 to Battle.net does not necessarily mean Blizzard is opening up its platform to other third-party games, according to the company. “Our focus in terms of supporting non-Blizzard games is solely around Destiny 2,” Blizzard said.

It does mean, however, that Battle.net users will be able to use their Blizzard Balance — which players can currently spend on things like World of Warcraft time and Overwatchloot boxes — to purchase Destiny 2.

I'm very excited for it. Currently playing D1 again and trying to fill up my Age of Triumph. I was only a casual player for this but Destiny 2 might have me hooked.

 

With it being on PC, I wonder if the guild is gonna try to make a presence? Do we do FPSes? :P

Destiny 2 is freaking fantastic. If you were a fan of the original, you are in for a treat. If you were on the fence, this will push you over. If you dislike Destiny, you will love this. I am definitely gonna pick up a copy for PC.
