Destiny 2 is coming – and it’s coming a littler earlier than anticipated. Usually, games are delayed, but Bungie’s sequel is coming before it’s meant to. You’ll be able to play Destiny 2 on consoles from September 6, and on PC from October 24.

“With our partners at Bungie, we’re delighted to be welcoming players to Destiny 2 early.  The game looks and plays great, and moving the launch date up allows us to provide the best possible day one experience for our console players around the world.” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “Bungie is also optimizing Destiny 2 to take full advantage of the PC with specific features like 21:9 monitor support and will be in player’s hands on October 24.”

Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said, “For all of us at the studio, this is a humbling year to see the vision of the Destiny universe welcome its sequel, and for us, the most exciting part is to see what stories this amazing community will tell once it is in their hands.”  He added, “We had an industry-defining moment at our Destiny 2 gameplay reveal in May, and at E3, the team is expanding hands-on to showcase a new subclass and will continue to highlight the vast variety of hands-on experiences that appeal to both solo and multiplayer gamers.”

With that also comes news of the game’s beta dates. Those who pre-order the game get earlier access, kicking off on July 18 on PlayStation, and July 19 on Xbox One. They go in to open beta on July 23. PC Gamers get to jump in in August.

To sum:

  • July 18: PlayStation 4 Pre-Order BETA
  • July 19: Xbox One Pre-Order BETA
  • July 21: Open BETA for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
  • July 23: Console BETA End-date
  • Late August: PC BETA

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
