Destiny could easily be mistaken for a PlayStation 4 exclusive title, I mean, in Japan it sort-of is, but elsewhere it seems that Bungie have been giving Sony’s consoles the preferential treatment what with the handful of exclusive content, the early access Alpha, and the upcoming Beta. But according to community manager David Dague, they’re not ostracising Xbox with the exclusivities.
In an interview with the Angry Joe Show, Dague assured viewers that everything coming to PlayStation will eventually appear on Xbox at some point. Sadly he didn’t reveal any estimations as to when, but according to the PS4 listing for Destiny on Amazon US, Xbox isn’t going to get the exclusive content until the Fall of 2015, that’s a year after the games release.
“Well, we’re making a game for the Xbox guys,” said Dague. “Any suggestion that we’re ostracising or alienating the Xbox community – I mean, we are making a game for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.”
“We’re immensely proud of our legacy with the Bungie community and the Halo games. We absolutely want them to join us in the world of Destiny. The exclusives we have announced will be available to them on a long enough timeline. I don’t know if that timing has been revealed yet, but everything you’re going to see in this game will be available to all some day.”
Destiny is set for release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 9. The PlayStation version of the game is set to come with exclusive content such as a handful of new ships, a co-op Strike map, a competitive multiplayer map, the Monte Carlo assault rifle, Hawkmoon hand cannon and new armour sets for all three classes.
