Bungie Details Next Gen Optimized Destiny 2 Launching December 8th


Bungie has finally provided details on what to expect from the version of Destiny 2 enhanced for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

While the game will be playable on the day the consoles release as backwards compatible with the added benefit of faster load times and cross-play within the same ecosystem, next gen owners will have to wait just a bit more to get the next-gen Destiny experience.

Bungie will be releasing the optimized/enhanced version on December 8th. This is to ensure a smooth experience on the new devices.

The good news, we are getting a FoV slider on the new systems.

Other notes:

  • We are offering Field of View customization on consoles for the first time. Our goal is to enable a FOV range similar to that on PC. We’re currently testing these settings to ensure smooth performance across each platform and will have additional details closer to launch.
  • There will be noticeable improvements to things like loading the game and inspecting character inventory. However, some load times are dependent on networking and matchmaking. So, loading activities still takes time while you search for opponents.
  • For cross-generation play, Xbox Series X|S players can play with Xbox One players. PlayStation 5 players can play with PlayStation 4 players.
