Activision and Bungie are creating Destiny 2, and it’ll arrive this coming September. It is going to be an important release for a variety of reasons. Before the game launches though, the two will be testing the shooter to make sure it’s ready for this fall’s 2017 debut.
As everyone expected, a Destiny 2 open beta is coming later this month. Those who pre-order the game on PS4 and Xbox One will receive early access to the beta. PS4 gamers will gain access on July 18, while Xbox One gamers will gain access only one day later on July 19.
The Destiny 2 open beta will take place on consoles from July 21 through July 23. Folks are expecting the PC beta to run sometime next month. I highly expect a PC open beta to take place in August, as that pacing would fit with the fact that the game is releasing on PC one month after console. One month later for PC’s launch, one month later for PC’s beta.
Activision’s Destiny 2 open beta will feature a number of diverse activities for gamers to check out. Players will be able to experience the opening story mission of Destiny 2‘s campaign. Additionally, cooperative and competitive gameplay modes will come to the beta, though none were specified. To celebrate the announcement, Activision released a new trailer below.
Destiny 2 will make its PS4 and Xbox One debut this coming Sept. 6. The original launch date was moved up from its initial mid-September date. PC gamers will have to wait a bit longer for the game to arrive. Activision says the PC version of Destiny 2 will debut on Oct. 24.
This will give Bungie a bit more time to optimize the experience for PC gamers. I had the chance to experience Destiny 2 on PC at E3 and I’m happy to say things are looking great. More information on the game will surface in the coming weeks. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Destiny 2.
