Destiny 2 made a considerable splash at E3 2017, and the popular loot ’em up shooter looks set to be one of this year’s biggest launches.
Still, there remains a question mark over whether Destiny 2, which historically favors PlayStation users, will support the extra power found in the Xbox One X. At least for the time being, Bungie is reluctant to say.
Sony has a pervasive (and likely expensive) marketing deal in place with the Destiny franchise, which went to great lengths to prevent Microsoft from marketing (or even mentioning) the Xbox One version of the original game. It doesn’t seem to be as aggressive and anti-competitive for Destiny 2, thankfully, but many questions have been raised about whether Bungie will actually utilize the Xbox One X’s additional power, or hold the game back to keep it in-line with Sony’s weaker PlayStation 4 Pro.
On the PS4 Pro, Destiny 2 will be able to achieve 4K in certain situations, leveraging dynamic scaling during more intense sequences. Will the Xbox One X receive the same treatment? Bungie isn’t saying.
