It seems Blizzard has a destiny too – with Destiny 2

In an unusual move, Blizzard, the company responsible for World of Warcraft and Overwatch, has announced they will be including a non-Blizzard game in their launcher app for the first time ever – Destiny 2.

Destiny 2, developed by Bungie and Activision, will soon make it’s appearance on PCs around the globe, and be accessed through Blizzard’s launcher, previously only used for Blizz’s own games. What does this mean for Blizzard? Are they merging companies? Are will more third party games show up in the launcher? As of right now, no. Destiny 2 will simply be able to enjoy the benefits of Blizzard’s global internet infrastructure, communications, chat functions, and friends list. Bungie will still be maintaining the servers for the game itself, but they would have spent additional time developing a launcher for their first PC game, and everyone involved in this decision just wants to play.

I still own most of the old-school consoles and collect games for them, own a PC dedicated to gaming, and have been an avid World of Warcraft enthusiast for over 10 years. When I'm not playing video games, I can usually be found playing tabletop games such as Werewolf: The Apocalypse (20th) or D&D 5e, or just the random board game with friends. My other hobbies include collecting Sailormoon merchandise, ball jointed dolls, and cosplay.
