Destiny 2 PC Will Trail Consoles; Has No Dedicated Servers

A Bungie interview on PC Gamer talks about the PC edition of Destiny 2, and how the shooter sequel will be "legit on day one" of its release. That day one reference is a little painful in light of a previous post they made on the topic saying the PC edition may well have a later release date than its console counterparts. "We're not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we're totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can," explains Bungie game director Luke Smith. "Our partnership with Blizzard and being on Battle.net, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it's a delicious piece of bread when it comes out." In other PC-specific news, they note that though multiplayer will be handled through the service formerly known as Battle.net, the game will not feature dedicated server support, with Bungie's David Shaw invoking the term "typology" seemingly at random: "It is a complicated typology. We do not have dedicated servers for Destiny 2 on PC."

Bungie has a pathetic track record on PC, lets translate this mess of an announcement into what will really happen:

  • Game will be delayed for some time on PC

  • Launch day will be a disaster with servers overloaded and bugs galore

  • Poor port quality. Locked 60FPS (or worse 30), no support for 21:9 aspect ratio or super-widescreen. Control schemes designed for controllers (mouse acceleration on by default, no options to disable)

  • Extremely limited graphics options/tweaking. Will probably need to do alot of it through .cfg/.ini files

  • Poor performance and driver instability

  • Multiplayer stability will be a huge problem, multiple patches in the first weeks will be needed to even get instances working. I doubt things like parties and joining on friends will work at all.

  • Incredibly overpriced! This game will retail for $59.99 and probably stay there for a good long time, with minimal sale prices, and equally overpriced DLC that adds marginal, copy+pasted content.


  • There, just saved you a lot of time and some money on another mediocre PC port. If you're really interested in a game like this and haven't played Borderlands, buy the entire series for half the price and have twice the fun.
