Destiny 2 on PC is Migrating From Battle.net to Steam

Don't worry, everything should make the move over.

Bungie's newfound independence comes with a new home for its PC players. Announced during a livestream today, Destiny 2 on PC will be migrating from Battle.net to Steam, with its upcoming Shadowkeep expansion being a Steam PC exclusive.

Game director Luke Smith and general manager Mark Noseworthy discussed some of the changes. Anyone currently playing Destiny 2 on PC will be able to migrate all their information and possessions. As Noseworthy says, they want the transition to be "really seamless."

"They're gonna be able to come over to Steam free of charge," says Noseworthy. "They're gonna continue their accounts, all their possessions are gonna move over, any licenses they had, any DLC, whatever. It all comes over."

Destiny 2's PC migration is just some of the news revealed in today's big Destiny status update. Cross-save is coming to all platforms, meaning whatever box you play on will let you progress the same character whenever, wherever. Destiny 2 is also coming to the Google Stadia, Google's game streaming box launching in November.

And most notably, Destiny 2 is going free-to-play, with all "foundational modes" made open and a new starting experience Bungie is calling "New Light." That means raids, strikes, and other content won't be gated, and there will be "no more exclusives" in terms of gameplay, armor, and weapons. Things might have been rocky, but now it looks like a big year for the freshly independent Bungie and Destiny 2.
