Bungie’s newest game Destiny may or may not see a PC release, according to Bungie senior writer and community head Eric Osborne while speaking with IGN. The main reason why a PC version of Destiny might not happen is because developing for more platforms means more work and Bungie doesn’t want to put more effort into one platform than another.
“We haven’t said yes, and we haven’t said no,” Osborne said. “The more platforms we take on, the more work it ultimately becomes, and what we don’t want is to compromise the core experience on any platforms. We have a lot of people who play on PCs. We have a lot of appetite to build that experience. We haven’t announced it yet, but we’re looking forward to talking more about that kind of stuff in the future.”
Since Destiny is a multiplatform game (appearing on the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS4), IGN asked if saved files will transferable between all consoles. Osburne responded by saying there are some “complexities” that must be resolved first before that can happen.
“For us, [platforms] are purely agnostic,” Osborne said. “Any data on our back-end servers and services, like Bungie.net, are ours. We control it, we can do a bunch of fun stuff on that side. So for us, we want to absolutely do the right things for players. But there are some complexities we have to solve that are outside our control. But we’re absolutely pushing to solve some of those things. We don’t have anything to announce, but hopefully in the future we will.“
