Ever since Destiny 2 was announced for the PC, there was the question of what store it would be hosted on. There was the possibility of the game coming to Steam or Activision’s own new client that would be made specially for Destiny 2. But it is quite recently been known that Bungie’s net shooter is going to be available on the Blizzard App which was known before as Battle.Net.
Blizzard’s client is already known to host it’s own games including World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone. This will be the first third-party game to feature on the client and it is a good choice from Bungie as well. Blizzard is an excellent platform to host Destiny 2 as it will give players assurity of a well trusted company to feature the game on it’s store.
Blizzard, being the creators of some of the first and finest MMORPGS, are experienced to the Destiny playerbase that will involve exploration, killing and the endless loot to trick out your character. Destiny 2 will be available via retail and also can be bought digitally exclusively from the Blizzard store (Battle.Net).
Mike Morhaime, Blizzard President, was the one to disclose this news about Destiny 2 being exclusive to the Blizzard App through a video message while finishing up Blizzard’s livestream show. Many people were definitely expecting a Steam release for the game and will be disappointed.
Steam is one of the most widely-used client in PC gaming and it also boasts the more popularity of the lot. People who have not used the Blizzard App before will be resistant to make the switch if they chose to get the game. The game previously being a console exclusive will be sure to have a smaller playerbase on PC this time around because of the lack of veterans that were enthusiastic for the first game.
Destiny 2 will arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 8th, 2017. Be sure to stay tuned for more!
