It was reported earlier that Destiny 2 will be moving to Steam starting in October 2019. But people were unsure of what that means for Battle.net. \n \nNow, all those questions have been answered. \n \nIn an announcement posted on its website, Bungie said that they are gearing up for the transfer of Destiny 2 on Steam. Players are asked to help move their characters, rewards, purchases, and gear from Battle.net to Steam. \n \n \n \nThe process will start on August 20, where Bungie will link players accounts to enable the transfer. Players are given a two-week window to ensure their Guardians are sorted and ready for the Oct. 1 launch. \n \nThe move is no longer a surprise considering the split between Bungie and Activision after an 8-year-long partnership. The news was reported back in January this year, and it gave Bungie exclusive publishing rights over Destiny 2. \n \nBungie and Activision inked a partnership in 2010 for the developer to deliver four games and another four expansions. However, development suffered several delays, and shipment was set back for about a year. Destiny was released in September 2014 while Destiny 2 debuted in September 2017. \n \nThe two companies, however, vowed to continue to work together to make the transition as smooth as possible. \n \nHowever, after an exclusivity on Battle.net, Bungie is veering away from that model as far as possible. Destiny general manager Mark Noseworthy said their vision for the game is for it to be played across multiple platforms. \n \nThey are not closing their doors on partnering with Epic Games so Destiny 2 can be offered at its store. \n \nDestiny 2’s transfer to Steam will coincide with the release of Shadowkeep, the fourth DLC for the game. With the Shadowkeep, there’s something sinister stirring up on the moon. \n \nThe hunter Eris Morn, the remaining survivor of the fireteam, is back. But she woke up a malevolent force that even she could not rein back. It’s an ancient specter that has taken shape and summons nightmares that were thought to have been long gone. Now, prisoners, warlords, disciples, and mercenaries are possessed with this dark power that thrives on fear. \n \nFor Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, there would be new quests and missions, as well as new dungeons and destinations. There will also be a new raid, as well as a season pass for the Season of the Undying. \n \nYou can pre-purchase Destiny 2: Shadowkeep on Steam right now.
