Destiny 2 Will Launch on Blizzard's Battle.net for PC

A surprise annoucement brings Bungie's shooter to Blizzard's online portal.

Destiny 2 was previously announced for the PC to join alongside the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, but now it's been announced that Destiny 2 will be available through Blizzard Entertainment's Battle.net services in a surprise partnership.

Activision CEO Eric Hersberg took the stage at the world premiere event for Destiny 2 in Los Angeles today to announce that Bungie and Activision will be partnering with Blizzard to bring Destiny 2 to PCs through Blizzard's battle.net services which currently hosts Blizzard games like Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch.

This is a surprise announcement that makes sense given that Activision is related to both Blizzard via a merger, and Bungie through their Destiny partnership.

This is a developing story and we will update accordingly. Until then, check out everything we know so far about Destiny 2.
