Today, during the livestreamed presentation of Destiny 2, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg talked about the partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment on the game.
After mentioning that the game plays even better than he looks, and expressing his pride for the work put into the title by the team at Bungie, he shifted the topic on the work done alongside Sony.
“Doing all this, bringing a vision and an undertaking ambitious and huge as Destiny 2, it takes more than just the great talent we have at Activision, the great talent we have at Bungie, it takes partners who also can see the vision and believe in the vision as much as we do, and we have a partner just like that in Sony.
They have been by our side since really before day one, and these guys are legit. Some of the hardest-core Destiny players I know, are on the team we work with at Sony. They’ve been hugely supportive every step of the way of Activision, of Bungie and of the Destiny vision.”
Hirshberg also confirmed that a beta for the game will launch later this summer, letting players go hands-on with the game. PS4 players will also get timed exclusive content that will be revealed at a later date.
If you want to see more from the reveal, you can check out the official gameplay trailer, a new story trailer, a developer diary focused on features, one on the planets and the spectacular first mission of the game. Last, but not least, there is a metric ton of spiffy screenshots.
Destiny 2 will be released on September 8th for PS4 and Xbox One. A PC version has also been announced, but no specific release date has been confirmed yet.
