Ahead of the game’s migration from Battle.Net, Destiny 2 on Steam and Stadia has been announced for an Autumn schedule with characters and progression saves.
It has been announced that the super massive online RPG Destiny 2 will be making it’s way to Steam and Google Stadia.
The game’s developer Bungie, also known for the Halo series, have confirmed that Destiny 2 is heading for a Steam release in September.
The great news is that they have also confirmed that characters will be transferable from the current Activision system Battle.Net to the Steam platform.
Since Activision and Bungie had a very public split, the fate of Destiny 2 was a little uncertain, but Bungie have made it clear that the game is here to stay, albeit with a new home.
Bungie have also confirmed that all character gear and game progression will move with the characters and they have stated that the move should be a smooth one.
Destiny 2 is the second game in the Destiny series, an extremely popular and very large online RPG action game.

Speaking about the releases on Steam and Stadia, Destiny 2’s Production Designer Scott Taylor has confirmed that cross saving will be available between Xbox One, PC and Stadia with Sony still to confirm the feature for Playstation 4.
However given Sony’s attitude towards cross platform features I would not expect it to be available.
Speaking of Destiny 2 and PlayStation 4, the Sony console is to lose it’s Destiny 2 exclusive content.
Any new content released will be available for all platforms however Bungie have not confirmed when this is to begin.
Destiny 2 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC with Steam and Google Stadia to follow this September.
