Bungie details Destiny 2’s next-gen future, including free PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrades

Destiny 2 is coming to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, and today Bungie has given additional details on just what that transition will look like when the ports release this holiday season.

First off, Bungie is promising the next-gen versions of Destiny 2 will support 60fps and 4K resolution on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, marking a significant jump from the 30fps / 1080p version of the game on current-generation consoles.

Despite those improvements, Bungie is promising that the cross-generation versions will still be fully compatible with each other: PlayStation 5 owners will be able to play Destiny 2 with friends on the PS4 version, and Xbox Series X customers will have cross-play with the Xbox One version. More importantly, Bungie also teased that it was working on cross-platform play for sometime in 2021, which would finally make it possible for Xbox and PlayStation players to enjoy Destiny 2 together.

As part of that commitment to supporting Destiny 2 on both current-generation and next-gen consoles, Bungie has also announced that current Destiny 2 owners on PS4 and Xbox One will get free upgrades to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game for all existing content.

The Xbox version will rely on Microsoft’s Smart Delivery program (which offers cross-purchasing for the two console generations for participating titles). But the news is particularly notable for PlayStation fans, as it marks the first developer commitment toward offering some sort of similar cross-buy program for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
