Destiny 2: Cross-Save is Coming to All Platforms, Including PS4

Destiny 2: Cross-Save is Coming to All Platforms, Including PS4

Soon you can move your Destiny 2 save file around freely.

Bungie is hosting a livestream today to reveal the next chapter of the Destiny 2 saga. But before the actual show, Bungie director Luke Smith and Destiny general manager Mark Noseworthy announced that cross-save is coming to all platforms later this year. Yes, even on PlayStation 4.

Dataminers discovered a banner earlier this week that seemed to indicate that cross-save is coming to Destiny 2. That means players can transfer their characters and progress from one console to the other. So, if you've been playing Destiny 2 on the Xbox but want to play on PC, you can carry over your entire progress with cross-save.

Earlier reports suggested that cross-save for Destiny 2 would only be coming to PC, Xbox, and the newly announced Stadia. But Noseworthy confirms that PlayStation 4 will also support cross-save. So if you've played Destiny 2 and all of its content on PS4, you can bring that save to any other platform. The official PlayStation Twitter account even tweeted about it.

This is great news for console players, as Destiny 2 didn't launch on PC until months afterwards. So even if they wanted to play on PC, they may have chosen to play on console just to play it early. But with cross-save, you can make it so that you're not stuck on console, or vice versa.

Cross-save is coming to all platforms on September 17. There will be more info on how cross-save will work later. Bungie's livestream today will also discuss its new Shadowkeep expansion and the decision to bring Destiny 2 to Steam.
