Surprising news comes as Bungie confirms that Google Stadia Destiny 2 Crossplay will not be available for Google’s upcoming video game streaming service.


According to a recent FAQ session with Bungie, the Stadia version of Destiny 2 will not support PC crossplay.

In an answer given, Bungie states:

Stadia is its own ecosystem, just like current existing platforms. Stadia players will only be able to play with other Stadia players.

This comes as disappointing news since it was confirmed before E3 last week that the game would support cross saving between Xbox One, PC and Stadia, with Sony yet to confirm.

What this means is that while you can carry on your game from any of the supported devices, you won’t be able to play with friends using Xbox One while you fire up Google Stadia on your 4K TV.

Google Stadia is the new game streaming service being developed by Google which is set to launch in November.

It was confirmed that Destiny 2 will be a launch title for the platform available for subscribers.

At launch the new service will not be free, costing £9.99 per month, however a free version will be coming next year.

There are to be vast differences between the paid and free versions, however the service sounds like it could be excellent provided it is carried out properly.

As of time of writing, the service is said to have only 30 games currently confirmed to be available at launch and there is no list of said games.

Destiny 2: The Collection and Google Stadia will be available together in November this year.

    Hey Michael,
    This is altogether a new era of play game which I wasn’t aware at all. Hopefully, Google Stadia destiny 2 Crossplay, to be launched in November must be PC friendly though it would be charging £9.99 (getting this symbol made me search). And why not wait till the following year when the FREE Version will be available?

    You’ve given a good piece of information here.

    Thanks for sharing

      Hi and thanks for commenting.

      No PC crossplay is indeed a disappointment and I am now concerned about whether there will be enough gamers that adopt Google Stadia as a gaming service.

      Given that they aren’t offering any exclusive titles and that most people either have a PC, Xbox or PlayStation, I am doubtful whether this is actually going to work.

      Google are taking a big risk here and one that I believe won’t pay off, although it will set the precedent for the future of gaming, i.e. Gaming as a Service.

      Cheers,
      Michael.
