Destiny won’t hit PC at launch as spreading Bungie too thin could hurt other platforms, says Osborne

Destiny is an online shooter with MMO sensibilities, so it seems like a natural fit for the PC market. However, Bungie community manager Eric Osborne has stressed that it’s not the focus right now as it would spread the studio too thin.

It comes as part of an IGN interview, during which Osborne revealed that Bungie added fantasy elements to Destiny so people wouldn’t confuse it with Halo.

PCGamesN picked up on this nugget, which saw Osborne commenting on the future of Destiny on PC.

He said, “It’s a huge challenge to ship four platforms and a massive opportunity to reach a new audience. We know there are a lot of people out there asking for PC and we know that there are a lot of gamers that would willingly give us money, but what we have to do is make sure we’re focused enough to bring a good experience to any platform that we ship on.

“What we 100 percent are not going to do is spread ourselves so thin that it negatively harms the other platforms. So right now we have the four platforms, which is a lot to focus on.”

Would this be of interest after the console versions are out the door? Would you like to see Destiny get a PC release?
