Destiny 2 PC players this is going to affect you so read up!
Blizzard announced that the Destiny 2 will be moving off the Battle.net platform to Steam October 1st. So if you are a current owner of this game you will need to link your accounts so it will transition over. Follow this link for more information https://www.bungie.net/PCMove. From everything we have read, both Blizzard and Bungie are working to create a seamless transition over to Steam for those who already own this game on the battle.net platform.
What does this mean for other Bungie games going forward and why leave Blizzard platform?
The Windows version was initially distributed exclusively through the Blizzard Battle.net, marking the first non-Blizzard Entertainment title to be distributed via the platform. In January 2019, Bungie and Activision amicably broke their publishing agreement, leaving Bungie as the game’s publisher for the PC version. Blizzard and Bungie partnered up back in 2010, after Bungie sold its Halo rights to Microsoft and started its next project “Destiny” (2014). According to the terms of the deal Bungie would develop”Destiny” for Activision for 10 years.

“When we first launched our partnership with Activision in 2010, the gaming industry was in a pretty different place. As an independent studio setting out to build a brand new experience, we wanted a partner willing to take a big leap of faith with us,” the studio said in a statement. “We had a vision for Destiny that we believed in, but to launch a game of that magnitude, we needed the support of an established publishing partner.”
Now with the announcement of Bungie moving to Steam Platform, what will this mean for the Destiny Franchise? Will they see an uptick in players? The first tes will be with the next DLC. Bungie has announced that late October the next installment will be launched called “Shadowkeep”.
