Destiny developer Bungie has assured PC gamers that it is looking at the format and that it is also considering the possibility of cross-platform saves for its MMO shooter. Don’t get too excited, as nothing is concrete yet.

Speaking with IGN, Bungie senior writer and head of community Eric Osborne said of a potential PC release, “We haven’t said yes, and we haven’t said no.

“The more platforms we take on, the more work it ultimately becomes, and what we don’t want is to compromise the core experience on any platforms. We have a lot of people who play on PCs. We have a lot of appetite to build that experience. We haven’t announced it yet, but we’re looking forward to talking more about that kind of stuff in the future.”

On the issue of cross-platform saves, Osborne added, “For us, [platforms] are purely agnostic. Any data on our back-end servers and services, like Bungie.net, are ours. We control it, we can do a bunch of fun stuff on that side. So for us, we want to absolutely do the right things for players.

“But there are some complexities we have to solve that are outside our control. But we’re absolutely pushing to solve some of those things. We don’t have anything to announce, but hopefully in the future we will.”
