Report: Destiny 2 getting cross save across platforms

Since the original Destiny, fans have been requesting to transfer their characters from one platform to another. The alternative? Starting completely from scratch, trashing hundreds of hours of progress. These requests only heightened with the launch of Destiny 2 on PC, with console players eager to make the jump to 60 frames-per-second and mouse-and-keyboard controls. Those players may be getting their wish in the near future, if a recent datamined image is any indication.

With launch of Destiny 2’s latest expansion, Season of Opulence, came a major patch and a handful of unintentional leaks. One of the biggest was the uncovering of Shadowkeep, Bungie’s fall expansion for Destiny 2. But nestled among the datamined information was one intriguing image:


Unlike the Shadowkeep leak, this “cross save” image included no detailed information. But its appearance seems to heavily imply that cross save functionality is on the way for Destiny 2.

Cross save functionality is further buoyed by a report on Kotaku, which has sources claiming that Stadia, Google’s forthcoming streaming games service, will support cross save in Destiny 2. In theory this would allow players to log on to their Destiny account from a wide variety of devices, so long as the network connection is strong enough.

There’s still a question of whether all existing platforms would be supported, though. Sony in particular has been hesitant to allow cross save functionality in games like Fortnite, though recent advances with that game and Rocket League have shown it’s willing to budge.

Official information regarding Destiny 2’s cross save support will likely drop tomorrow, either during the Stadia presentation taking place at 12 p.m. ET or during Bungie’s Shadowkeep reveal stream at 1 p.m. ET.
