Destiny for PC: When It Will Be Released Still Uncertain
Destiny, the online first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie and published by Activision, was released September 9 to the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. Despite numerous rumors, Bungie has not officially confirmed that it will be developing a Destiny PC version anytime soon. Erik Hirshberg, the CEO of Activision Publishing, told Polygon during E3 that "developing on PC is a different animal than developing for consoles and so we just want to make sure that we're putting one foot in front of the other and getting it right, and that it's of the highest possible quality. But obviously I see the same things about the natural fit."
Eric Osbourne, senior writer at Bungie, also told IGN: "We haven't said yes, and we haven't said no. The more platforms we take on, the more work it ultimately becomes, and what we don't want is to compromise the core experience on any platforms. We have a lot of people who play on PCs. We have a lot of appetite to build that experience. We haven't announced it yet, but we're looking forward to talking more about that kind of stuff in the future." So it seems, unless the developer can be certain that the "core experience on any platform" will not be compromised, it won't be going beyond the talking stage just yet when it comes to the development of a Destiny PC version. As noted by Game Rant, "no PC version at all would be better than just another bad console port."
The Destiny gameplay is essentially an online and multiplayer contest. Having it ported to PC will require Bungie to provide not only additional technical support for the extra platform but also additional infrastructure in the form of new dedicated servers for the PC players since it has to be always connected to the "once central world" through the Internet. Presently, Bungie may not have the resources to cover these hard requirements for the development of a Destiny PC version. "But," says Polygon, "it's safe to say that one day in the future, PC gamers will get their Destiny."
