PC gamers, your delayed shot at Destiny 2 has finally been pegged with a date: October 24. Should you opt to buy the “connected-world shooter” sequel on Windows, which will be the only platform to support unlocked frame rates and other major visual customizations, you’ll have to wait exactly 46 days after the console versions launch.
If you’ve just started counting your fingers and feel confused, it’s okay. That’s 46 days, not 44, because Bungie and Activision added a tiny bit of salt to the PC gamers’ wait on Monday by simultaneously bumping all console versions’ release dates two days earlier. Destiny 2‘s launch on all Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles is now happening on September 6, not September 8.
Additionally, if you want to sample Destiny 2‘s beta without pre-ordering the game, you will be able to do so starting July 21 at 10 a.m. PT on both consoles. You’ll get nearly 60 hours of free beta time this way, as the console beta period expires at 9 p.m. PT on July 23. (Pre-order on Xbox One to jump into the beta earlier, on July 19, or on PlayStation 4 to start on July 18.) Destiny 2 PC players will get a beta period, as well, but Bungie did not confirm a time range (other than “late August”) or how exactly pre-orders will affect that access period.
