On a blog post, Bungie has officially stated that August 21 will be the day cross-save becomes available.
Cross-saves are finally coming to Destiny 2, with a planned launch date of August 21st.
Bungie previously laid out a bit of info about how cross save will work. Players can freely move their character between platforms with Destiny 2: New Light, which is the upcoming free-to-play version of Destiny 2's Year One content.
You can find a full FAQ on the Cross Save feature on the Destiny 2 website. It will let players play with the same account on several platforms.
It's optional, though, so if you prefer to use individual accounts on different platforms, that is still an option.
All characters will be able to come across, along with their weapons and loot. So if you have friends on both Xbox and PlayStation, you can just hop from one console to another and pick up where you left off. Players using cross save will be able to access all of their characters regardless of which platform they are playing on. "This policy exists to discourage activity like account recoveries by other players", Bungie states. A date for this to happen was not announced until yesterday. In keeping with the announcement from last week about our new launch window, Destiny 2 will arrive on Steam for the first time on October 1.
In its PC move FAQ, Bungie explains that you'll get a one-time move from Battle.net to Steam that'll take everything you've purchased with you-including all game content and any Silver you've bought, as well. Starting on August 20, however, PC users can start linking their accounts between Battle.net and Steam to make the transition easier.
