Destiny PC Release ‘Not A Focus’ – Bungie
Bungie has suggested that any PC owners hoping to get their hands on Destiny are going to have to wait a while. That is, if they ever get a PC release of Destiny at all.
Speaking to IGN, senior writer and community manager, Eric Osborne, said that the console versions of Destiny are the focus for Bungie.
“It’s a huge challenge to ship four platforms and a massive opportunity to reach a new audience,” said Osborne.
“We know there are a lot of people out there asking for PC and we know that there are a lot of gamers that would willingly give us money, but what we have to do is make sure we’re focused enough to bring a good experience to any platform that we ship on,” Osborne continued.
“What we 100 percent are not going to do is spread ourselves so thin that it negatively harms the other platforms. So right now we have the four platforms, which is a lot to focus on.”
It’s possible then, that we won’t see a PC version of Destiny at all.
Having said that, if the game is successful, then you would imagine that Bungie would find it worthwhile to release a PC version, after the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Destiny are out the door.
Osborne also responded to a question asking whether the developer are planning to implement micotransactions in Destiny.
“We’ve not announced anything on the microtransaction front but our goal is to absolutely make sure that when we deliver a game for $60 that’s a great experience no matter what type of player you are,” said Osborne.
“So we’re not looking at any pay-for-power type stuff. That’s what I hear as a player when people say they’re worried about models and schemes that nickel and dime people; we’re not going to do that.”
Despite being pretty evasive on the subject, that sounds very much like a “yes” to us.
