Bungie announce Destiny 2 crossplay coming in 2021
Crossplay has only been expanding over the past couple of years. Today, Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would be receiving this feature in 2021.
A few years ago, no one thought it would be possible for Xbox, PC, PlayStation, and Switch fans to play with and against one another in a given video game.
Games like Fortnite, Rocket League, and Call of Duty opened the door to this reality, and more developers are getting in on the newly-united platforms by bringing crossplay to their games.
Destiny players have long been asking for crossplay. The feature always seemed inevitable with the cross-save feature, but it hadn’t been fully realized – until now.
On December 8, Bungie released a Developer Update blog that went into the team’s plans for the upcoming year.
Assistant Game Director, Joe Blackburn, covered a ton of gear, Power, and gameplay features and updates coming to Destiny in the future.
Hardcore Destiny players will want to read the whole blog post. There’s a lot of exciting content on the horizon. More casual players scrolled down to see what might be the most interesting new feature covered with one bullet point: “Crossplay is coming in 2021.”
This was the only mention of crossplay within the whole blog post, so it’s safe to assume that it won’t be included in Destiny 2 for some time.
Cross-save is already a feature, however, which was a hurdle that other developers – such as Respawn with Apex Legends – had to clear.
Beyond Light was a massive update to Destiny 2, and it doesn’t seem like Bungie are slowing down anytime soon. We’re excited to break the barriers of platforms and see what else 2021 has in store for this game.
