It looks like Bungie is taking Destiny 2, it’s sci-fi looter shooter on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and is going the free-to-play route with it. According to a now removed article from the Engadget, the base game and the content from its Year 1 expansion is going free-to-play, and will be renamed the Destiny 2: New Light. Meanwhile, future expansions will also be sold separately and at a price.

Meanwhile, the article also confirms cross-save is coming, like a leak from yesterday said it is, but it will only be for Xbox One and PC.
The article also claims the game is coming to the Steam, meaning it won’t be exclusive to Battle.net on the PC platform anymore. Further, it will also no longer have platform-exclusive weapons, armors, or activities.
Of course, take this with a grain of salt like any leak, but this also seems to be legit. Engadget isn’t just a random site, which is where most of these type of leaks usually happen. Clearly they were made privy to this information early, and then to hit publish too soon. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long until word comes officially from Bungie, because it’s expected to reveal the future of Destiny 2 via a live stream later today.
Release Destiny 2
The Destiny 2 is currently available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
“Destiny 2 is a case study in how to make a shared world game,” reads a snippet from our other review. “While our earlier impressions made us believers, our time spent with it since has only cemented our humble adoration. Destiny 2 is also the best cooperative experience you can have on current-gen consoles.
Review: Destiny 2
“From its very easy-to-follow story, to its well-acted characters and the balanced skill classes, there’s no reason for players to get bored anytime soon. And with multiple expansions, Raids, and more on the way, we’re very sure to be playing this until rumbles of a Destiny 3 starting to surface.”
