Many fans have been voicing their want and, for some, need of a PC port for the FPS game, Destiny. Will they finally be getting it?
Bungie has refused to say anything about a PC version of Destiny, however, it now appears they might be readying themselves to develop for PC. The studio is hiring a ‘PC compatibility tester’. Spotted on Bungie’s career page, the PC compatibility tester will be primarily responsible for assessing a games quality on computers. The job sounds fairly similar to other QA jobs, except this one specifically focused on making sure a game works on PC.
The PC Compatibility Tester will evaluate PC hardware-specific features and ensure various systems work together across multiple PC configurations to provide a great experience
the description explains.
This is a challenging area to test, so we are only looking for the most resilient and technically minded testers. If you love solving new problems on a continuous basis with an eye for detail, you will love PC Compatibility Test at Bungie.
It’s been a long time since a Bungie game has come to PC, Halo 2 being the most recent title that made the cross to PC. It was ported by Microsoft Game Studios and it ran exclusively on the Windows Vista operating system.
The job description, however, suggests that Bungie is making a PC game in-house. And of course the most logical(?) explanation we could come to for this position is that Bungie is finally working on a Destiny port for PC. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking. If we’re right then it shouldn’t be much of a shock as publishers Activision said that the game is a ‘natural fit’ for PC back in June 2014.
It will probably be a while before we hear anything more about this as Bungie is currently working on a big new expansion for Destiny called The Taken King. It launches in September this year and you can read more about it here.
