Destiny is an interesting game which has a lot of MMO mechanics and what’s strange is that it is not available on the PC… yet. One might assume the PC will be a good fit for this type of a game considering the range of MMO-type experiences available on the platform, but the lack of a Destiny PC port could have been a good decision from Bungie.
We have to take into account that the developer takes ages to release an update or content to the already content starved game, and that’s mainly due to their tools which are convoluted. A PC version poses lots of challenges as evident from a similar type of game like The Division which has been butchered by hackers on PC.
However, that’s not a reason to not release the game and Bungie could benefit from additional sales as a lot of dollars has been pumped into Destiny by Activision.
Developer Bungie didn’t rule out a PC version in an interview with Gamespot and gave a typical non-answer by saying, “No updates on that today, but we’re always looking at what platforms make sense for Destiny.”
There could be a chance that Destiny might be finally released on the PC with all the DLCs, or they might do that with Destiny 2 which is slated for release in 2017.
Also, majority of the Destiny players, which is around 90%, now play the game on PS4 and Xbox One, so supporting the last-gen consoles does not make any sense for Bungie. The latest expansion Rise of Iron will be releasing on the next-gen platforms.
It kinda feels like Bungie has mismanaged the game but Destiny players are extremely loyal and they will be back once a new content drop happens. Destiny raids are beautiful and amazing to play with friends. The Taken King expansion for Destiny showed Bungie is on the right track.
