We’re pretty much done for the year, with big releases. Battlefield, Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed having released. A few other games are on the way, but they aren’t as high profile as those examples. 2014 is where we pick up again, and Destiny is the big name game that I have my console eyes on. Pity PC gamers won’t get to experience it.
Destiny is already shipping on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4, but it won’t be shooting up on PC next year as Bungie Community Manager Eric Osborne explained via IGN that doing so would thin the team out to dangerous levels.
We know there are a lot of people out there asking for PC and we know that there are a lot of gamers that would willingly give us money, but what we have to do is make sure we’re focused enough to bring a good experience to any platform that we ship on.
What we 100 percent are not going to do is spread ourselves so thin that it negatively harms the other platforms. So right now we have the four platforms, which is a lot to focus on.
Personally, I don’t see Destiny not coming to PC. I just don’t see it happening in 2014, as Bungie has their hands full right now with the other platforms, which will also require extensive after-launch work to keep that universe running.
