Could a PC version of Destiny be coming in the near future?
Recently, Destiny game developer Bungie posted a job opening on their official website. According the job posting, the game company is currently looking for a Compatibility Tester, with skills required and preferred focusing on PC gaming. Here is their job post description:
“Are you kept up at night by the fear that your drivers might be out of date? Do you get more excited than it’s seemingly reasonable about good cable management in a computer case? Do static bags and zip ties have a calming effect on you? If the answer is a resounding “YES!”, then I believe we have a job for you at Bungie.
Testers at Bungie are grouped into teams, responsible for ensuring that an area of the game is ready to ship. 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. This is a challenging area to test, so we are only looking for the most resilient and technically minded testers. If you love solving new problems on a continuous basis with an eye for detail, you will love PC Compatibility Test at Bungie.”
While the job post did not point out any specific project that the new Compatibility Tester would be working on, people in the gaming community have been quick to speculate that this could mean that a Destiny PC port could be coming sometime soon.
Talks about a PC version for Destiny is not anything new at all, since the news of the possibility of such has been hanging in the air for years now. Bungie even hinted at the possibility of it way back in 2013.
“We haven’t said yes, and we haven’t said no,” Bungie senior writer and head of community Eric Osborne previously said, in an interview with IGN. “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.”
