Will Destiny 2 come to PC with lovely 4K support and uncapped framerate after the console release?

Destiny 2 is set for a September 8 release date and this time around it’s coming to PC, but a couple of tweets from Geoff Keighley have got people’s hackles up about the PC release.

Keighley quotes Bungie as saying that Destiny 2 is “coming soon” to PC, and in a second tweet he says, “Bungie is committed to doing the PC version right, more news down the road on release date.”

As of press time, Bungie hasn’t discussed much regarding the PC version, which is playable on the event floor.

Here’s what the firm was willing to share, though:

PC Features

  • 4K Resolution Support (3820×2160)
  • Uncapped framerate
  • Full mouse and keyboard support with custom key mapping
  • Text chat
  • Adjustable Field of View
  • Detailed PC settings screen
  • 21:9 monitor support

PC players are already split over the news that Destiny 2 will be exclusively available on Blizzard’s Battle.net service, so I doubt this will be go down well with them either.

What do you think? Will the PC version release after the console version? Is it more important to get it right than working toward a simultaneous release? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
