Destiny developer Bungie has posted a job listing on their website asking for a “Compatibility Tester,” fueling speculation that the wildly-popular, massively-multiplayer shooter title could be migrating the PC platform. Currently exclusive to console, Destiny has been considered as a title for PC since the game launched back in 2014.
According to the job listing, Bungie is looking for someone who “will evaluate PC hardware-specific features and ensure various systems work together across multiple PC configurations to provide a great experience.” While Destiny isn’t specifically mentioned anywhere in the job listing, it is pretty much the only game Bungie is currently working on, giving PC players hope that Destiny could one day grace their monitors.
While Destiny has not been confirmed to ever actually be coming to PC, it hasn’t been ruled out either. In a 2013 interview with IGN, Bungie head of community Eric Osborne told the site that it isn’t something they haven’t completely said “no” to a PC version, and he also elaborate,d stating that there may be some information in that regard in Destiny’s future.
“We haven’t said yes, and we haven’t said no. The more platforms we take on, the more work it ultimately becomes, and what we don’t want is to compromise the core experience on any platforms. We have a lot of people who play on PCs. We have a lot of appetite to build that experience. We haven’t announced it yet, but we’re looking forward to talking more about that kind of stuff in the future.”
While the job listing has definitely made some news, Destiny has been in the throes of announcing new content and changes coming to the game via its Taken King expansion due out next month. As reported previously by the Inquisitr, Destiny: The Taken King will bring swords to the player’s arsenal. While there has been at least one instance where the player has had to use a sword for a quest, this brings them into the player’s standing arsenal should they choose to use them or not. Also, leveling has been retooled for Destiny “Year Two,” even if you didn’t purchase the Destiny: The Taken King expansion. Lastly, everyone’s favorite Destiny weapon, “Gjallarhorn” will not be upgradeable in Year Two, meaning that it will no longer been one of the coveted guns in Destiny as others take its place.
For PC players clamoring to play Destiny, the job listing is far from anything concrete regarding an official announcement. However, it gives players hope that one day Destiny will be playable on their high-end rigs, thus allowing all players the chance to play the role of a Guardian in Destiny, regardless of console or platform.
