Destiny 2 is a game that lives up to all the promise of the first Destiny.
New Destiny 2 features have gaming fans in a frenzy.
"We're not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we're totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can", Destiny 2 Director Luke Smith told PC Gamer following the first gameplay reveal for the title. Here are some of the biggest announcements and take aways from the event.

"It's still Blizzard Launcher", a Blizzard rep said of the online service. Special thanks to Lars for taking the time to chat with us! We will update this story with all of the details once the livestream has wrapped up. So, if you haven't played the original game, you shouldn't have much trouble jumping into this one. And you can do that on their Twitch channel, or on the Destiny site. "We're going to change a bunch of parameters to focus on giving people better networking experiences".
