Destiny 2 is coming this year

During the Activision Blizzard quarterly results conference call today, the publisher confirmed that Destiny 2, the sequel to Bungie's 2014 online FPS, will be out this year. 

Rumors of Destiny 2 on the PC first came to light last September, when a guy who knows a guy who works at Activision said on NeoGAF that words the "PC version" are being internally communicated to employees. 

But it seems almost a sure thing: Support for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms have been dropped, yet the earnings call slideshows states that the sequel will "broaden the franchise's global reach." That sounds very much to me like a move to PC is all but inevitable. We'll keep you posted.
