Destiny 2 Will Ideally Receive Updates On PC and Consoles Simultaneously

Bungie is keeping the option to tune individual platforms, though.

Now that Destiny 2 is officially available on both consoles and PC, some players have worried that Bungie might favor the latter version over the former, especially since it’s usually easier to push updates and patches through on PC than it is on consoles. Fortunately, Bungie has promised that its overall goal is to keep both the PC and console versions of Destiny 2 in the same cadence when it comes to releasing updates, though the studio also wants to make individual tweaks when needed.

Speaking with PC Gamer, Bungie’s PC lead David Shaw said that, while some initial events have seen a staggered release on PC (like the Leviathan raid and Trials of the Nine), the overarching goal is to simultaneously release updates, patches, and DLC on both PC and consoles:

"It's funny, people are like 'is that real? It's honestly easier for us to ship them all together than it is to try and separate anything out. For us our intent is 100 percent to keep all our platforms equal."

However, in a follow-up statement to PC Gamer, Shaw also clarified that, if the need arises, Bungie is keeping the option open to make individual tweaks to the PC version of Destiny 2:

"That work we did, we don't want to get stuck in the lurch like 'oh god I wish we could tune this one rocket launcher separately', we built stuff that will allow us to diverge if we need to, our intent is to stay as similar as possible, but we'll see what happens."

Destiny 2 is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
