Destiny 2 is coming to PC exclusively via Blizzard's Battle.net

Kayla Schwartz | 19 May, 2017, 20:00

According to GameZone, a NeoGAF user who goes by the name of ThatsMytrunks has started the latest rumor on the thread, focusing mainly on the big "Destiny 2" gameplay reveal event this week.

This isn't necessariliy unheard of, especially among larger game development companies, but it's still interesting to note in light of how fundamentally similar Halo and Destiny can seem - a similarity that Barnes says was not originally intended.

Will Destiny 2 offer the same cross-game social features that Blizzard titles now have? Titan, Io, Nessus and Earth, which didn't feature almost as much we think it should have in the original game, are all part of Destiny 2.

To make your life even easier, we've embedded the Twitch player above, so simply head back here at 6pm BST on 18 May 2017 to watch the Destiny 2 gameplay reveal live.

The broadcast included a variety of other details about the Destiny 2 launch.

Sturridge delighted to play his part
Defender Winston Reid said: "In the last few weeks we've been doing well". It was a big pressure game but the way we dealt with it was superb".

The Destiny 2 livestream kicked off with a heavy emphasis on giving as much access to all the content to as many players as possible. Namely, Destiny 2 will feature a way for more people to experience the end game content via use of officially supported Clans and Guided Games. Players will also be able to add friends and form parties the same way Blizzard gamers can.

Read our Destiny 2: Things you need to know article to find out what we know so far. If true, is a very surprising development especially given Microsoft's cross-platform parity between Xbox LIVE on Windows 10 and Xbox One consoles.

Interestingly enough, Bungie has confirmed the team is actually playing Destiny 2 from the comfort of their own homes. We look forward to sharing additional information later this year.

And what about customer service?

Razer, a force to be reckoned with in the gaming peripheral arena, today announced a new partnership with Bungie.
