Destiny 2 PC Version Release Times, Recommended Specs Revealed


While console players have been enjoying Destiny 2 for the past month and a half, PC owners have been (patiently) waiting for their turn to take a crack at the game. Well, relax – you’ve only got a few days left, and then it’s all yours.

To help alleviate the pain a little bit, Bungie has revealed when you’ll be able to get your hands on the PC edition through The catch is, though, that it won’t be set for a midnight launch.

Instead, it looks like Destiny 2 for PC will be launching mid-day on the 24th of October, set to go at 1 PM EDT in New York, and 10 AM PDT in Los Angeles. You can probably figure out the other time zones from there, but it’s an interesting time to launch the game – even by Destiny standards.

As you can see from the map below, other time zones have been revealed, with London, Berlin and Moscow getting the game later on the 24th, and other cities like Tokyo, Sydney and Singapore not even getting Destiny 2 until October 25th. Still, it’ll be pretty wild for a worldwide launch, and players will be jumping in in droves.

Bungie has also provided specific specs for Destiny 2 on PC, with both minimum and recommended settings for your laptop/desktop set-up. You’ll find those below:


CPU: Intel

Intel Core i3-3250 3.5 GHz or
Intel Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz
