Bungie has posted a job advert looking for a PC Compatibility Tester, sparking fresh rumors that Destiny will be making its way to PC.
As far as anyone on the outside knows, Bungie isn’t currently working on anything other than Destiny. It may have been released nearly a year ago, but Bungie’s commitment to its new franchise is in no doubt. It recently banned “hundreds” of cheaters from playing multiplayer, a special Destiny themed PS4 is due for release soon, and at last count had over 500 people working on the game’s sequel and various DLC packages 3 months after release. And let’s not forget that the third expansion, The Taken King is due to arrive soon.
Assuming that Bungie isn’t working on anything else, posting a job advert looking for a PC Compatibility Tester would seem to point to Destiny gracing the PC format sometime in the future. Describing what its would-be employee would be doing, Bungie says “The PC Compatibility Tester will evaluate PC hardware-specific features and ensure various systems work together across multiple PC configurations to provide a great experience.”, confirming at the very least its desire to do something on PC.
Of course, one possibility is that Bungie isn’t looking to port Destiny to PC, but rather its sequel – it’s already in development, after all. However, a port with all of the existing DLC for the original Destiny is also something Bungie may be considering.
Kyle Barrows reviewed Destiny for Continue Play, and is living proof of just how divisive Bungie’s first post-Halo game is, awarding it a score of 6/10.
“Bungie built an amazing and unique universe for us to explore, but filled it with the most uninspired and standard content possible,” Kyle wrote in his Destiny review, shortly after the game launched.
“If Bungie could have delivered on even half the promises it made, Destiny could have been something great. Instead, we are left with the skeleton of good game – and not much more.”
