Destiny on PC is 'a natural fit', says Activision exec

Non-console version "is something that's a heavy point of discussion"

Activision is still considering whether to release a PC version of Bungie's Destiny.

The Destiny release date is September 9 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, while a PC release has yet to be confirmed.


However, Activision Publishing CEO Erik Hirshberg told Polygon: "It is [a good fit], and it's something we're talking about and looking at very carefully, and obviously it makes a lot of sense with the genre and the type of game it is.

"Again, no announcements, but it's something that's a heavy point of discussion. And you asked how are we dealing with the complexity of developing for so many platforms, how about one more on top of that?

"Developing on PC is a different animal than developing for consoles and so we just want to make sure that we're putting one foot in front of the other and getting it right, and that it's of the highest possible quality," Hirshberg added. "But obviously I see the same things about the natural fit."

PlayStation Plus subscribers were recently granted access to a first-look alpha for Destiny, while Activision will launch the Destiny beta on July 17 for PS3 and PS4 players.
