Fans of the “Destiny” franchise will have to wait a little longer for the release of its sequel on PC.

In an interview with PC Gamer, “Destiny 2” director Luke Smith said they still don’t have a date for the game’s release. “We’re not committed to a PC date yet, but at Bungie we’re totally committed to making a PC build as great as we can,” shared Smith.

He explained that they are making sure that the PC version will come out the way it should. He likened it to piece of bread that “needs to bake in the oven” to come out “delicious” when it does. With the announcement, only players with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles will get to play the game in September.

Smith said, however, that the company will come out with an update in the coming weeks about the PC release. Furthermore, Bungie also released some key details of the game like its uncapped frame rates and 4K support.

“We’re PC fans ourselves, and we know PC players want the bells and whistles and they want all the sliders, they want all the things that are going to let them customize their experience,” shared project lead Mark Noseworthy.

In addition, they also released the default keyboards and mouse controls information to give the fans an idea of what to expect once the game comes out. Noseworthy also pointed that the game is also supporting mouse and keyboard remapping, which he notes as “super important to players.” He also said that the game also supports controllers, since some gamers are more comfortable using them instead of the keyboard-mouse set up.

The PC version will likely run on a with a Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz, 16GB RAM, and a GTX 1080Ti. The game ran on these specs during the demo.

“Destiny 2 ships on September 8 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
