We’ve got some idea of the system requirements for Destiny 2, as well as some good news: it’s going to be a very, very good PC port.
Here’s what we know about Destiny 2’s release date and more.
Here’s the advertised feature list:
- 4K Resolution Support (3820×2160)
- Uncapped framerate
- Full mouse and keyboard support with custom key mapping
- Text chat
- Adjustable Field of View
- Detailed PC settings screen
- 21:9 monitor support
Reports from the event suggest that there are not currently FOV settings in place, but presumably these will be implemented later, when proper bug testing can go on. The rest is to be expected, and some of it we were hoping for like text chat, but it’s good to see.
As for system requirements, they’re running the event on:
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti (Courtesy of Nvidia)
- CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2Ghz (Courtesy of Intel)
- 16GB Ram/500GB SSD/Windows 10
This is essentially a 4K machine, and a little out of the price range of most people. However, the event is running on 4K monitors, meaning this is what is needed. If a alpha-beta build like this one can run stable like that, expect your current hardware to be able to handle Destiny 2 when it arrives, at whatever resolution you’re used to.

You can also expect our friends at Can You Run Itto have all the information available as soon as there are official specs for the game. Expect it around the time the beta launches in summer.
