Bungie Explains the Confusion Behind Destiny Currency On Steam

Bungie finally reveals the mystery behind Destiny's Silver currency appearing on Steam.

on August 17, 2017 7:30 AM

Earlier this week, Silver, the in-game currency used in Destiny, randomly showed up on Steam. When word got out, many gamers started speculating whether Bungie intended to port over the original Destiny to Valve’s PC gaming platform.

Sadly, this was not the case- Bungie community manager David “Deej” Dague explained on Twitter that the Silver that appeared on Steam’s website was an error, although Valve has yet to make a public statement. Fortunately, those who purchased the microtransaction currency will be issued a refund.

After the Silver was removed; many PC gamers were still curious to know whether or not the first installment would ever see the light of day on PC. To which Dague explained that, although it is not out of the realm of possibility, the chances of it happening soon or at all are slim to none, which makes sense since Activision holds the publishing rights to the Destiny IP.

As confirmed during the Destiny 2 reveal event back in May, the PC version will be released exclusively on Blizzard Battle.net. For those of you unaware, Battle.net is an online service/store that provides games made by Blizzard, including Hearthstone and Overwatch.

Destiny 2 is set to be released on September 6th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the PC version is set to launch on October 24th. A Destiny 2 PC beta is set to begin on August 28th for those who have pre-ordered the game, while everyone else will receive access on August 29th.
