As one of the most highly-anticipated titles for the fall, all eyes are on Bungie and Activision for the upcoming debut of Destiny 2, with some new developments on the title set to bring it to console owners a little earlier, while PC gamers are no longer in the dark on when they can play it.

In a press release, Activision and Bungie confirmed that the console release for Destiny 2 has been bumped up to September 6th, 2017, two days from the originally-planned release that was announced for September 8th, 2017.

Alongside the new shift in release dates for the console versions, Bungie also confirmed that the game’s PC version will officially release on October 24th, 2017, with pre-orders for the title available now on Battle.net (where the PC version will officially call its home). While it’s going to be a bit longer of a wait for PC players that wish to enjoy the game, it won’t be too much longer than what some might have thought.

Bungie has also confirmed in its announcement that the game’s console beta will kick off starting with PS4 owners on July 18th, 2017 at 10am PT, while Xbox One owners can jump into the game starting on July 19th, 2017 at 10am PT in an early access period for those that pre-ordered the game. After that, an open beta will be available to all PS4 and Xbox One owners starting on July 21st, 2017 at 10am PT and will conclude on July 23rd at 9pm PT. The PC open beta will debut sometime in late August 2017.

Destiny 2 will release for PS4 and Xbox One on September 6th, 2017, followed by its PC release on October 24th, 2017.
