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.

Released in 2017, the game takes place in a multiplayer shared world environment with a main story arc that characters can play through.

Video game websites scored the game excellent with outlets such as Gamespot and IGN giving the game 8 out of 10 and 8.5 out of 10 respectively.

Since release, Destiny 2 has been given three expansion packs, all of which expand on the myths and lore of Destiny with new missions, NPC’s and content.

The game has also received multiple awards including Best PC Game of 2017 from Game Critics Awards 2017 and Best Online Game plus Best Multiplayer Game from Gamescom 2017.

It has also been announced today that Destiny 2 will be coming to Google Stadia as a launch title.

Titled Destiny 2: The Collection, the game will come with all previously released DLC plus an upcoming DLC and an Annual Pass.

The game is expected to be free to play via Stadia Pro, Google’s upcoming subscription based game streaming service.

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.

    I never played Destiny but I checked out Destiny 2 when it became free through PS Plus. I had a lot of fun with it and see why its a very successful game and continues to do well. I’m not too familiar with the new game subscription service that Google is offering, but as long as the transition is a smooth as they claim, it shouldn’t be an issue for fans of the game. Thanks for the news on this development, very helpful!

      Hi Dereck.

      Thanks for commenting.

      Destiny is a good game but I always felt it could have been more.

      Destiny 2 Collection coming with a Stadia subscription is a good incentive however.

      Stadia is launching in November this year for £9.99 per month.

      This will provide access to the full roster of games, 4K graphics, 5.1 surround sound, monthly games added and discounts on game purchases.

      A free version will be launching in 2020 with limited capabilities.

      Thanks,
      Michael.
