Destiny 2's PC version will launch after consoles

It's not going to be a new beginning for the thousands of players who spent most of their gaming time shooting each other in the original Destiny.

From the recent presentation for Destiny 2 on PC, fans can expect the first-shooter video game to reflect a tonne of similarities to the first instalment.

Just for reference, it costs $20/£15 to buy a single WoW Token from the in-game shop, with it then being redeemable for $15/£9.99 of Battle.net balance. People seem to love the console games. So, if I'm not in Clan, I can still push a few buttons and get matched up with a group that's doing one. 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. This was one of my biggest issues with Destiny and it looks like everyone will be able to have access to every piece of content.

On Blizzard's official website, the company shared that their focus in terms of supporting non-Blizzard games is exclusively around Destiny 2 and they now have no other short- or long-term plans to support other third-party titles on Battle.net. Now many might say that this is typical for Blizzard since none of their games are on Steam either, but Destiny 2 isn't being developed by Blizzard... it's being made by Bungie.

Blizzard's client is already known to host it's own games including World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone. Instead of using the two different team sizes from the original Destiny, 3v3 and 6v6, Destiny 2 will feature teams of four across all the available PVP game modes. Blizzard says making a brand new PC launcher/network client "would needlessly extend the development period for the game". In the new installment of the franchise, players will be fighting to retake Earth's Last City from a hostile alien force and defend the game's iconic Traveler - a sentient life form that safeguards the Earth in the distant future. Call of Duty is a game where multiplayer is king, but when you have a game like Destiny, people want the experiences and of course, the loot. For now, we don't have a clear answer.

So, what features do you want to see in Destiny 2?
