Bungie are hiring a PC Compatibility Tester. Does something lie in our destiny?


Bungie have quietly put a job advert on their careers website asking for people to come forward for the role of a PC Compatibility Tester. What could this possibly mean? 

“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. 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,” reads the advert. 

A deep knowledge of PC gaming hardware is required, as well as being experienced and comfortable with building PCs from scratch. 

So what use could Bungie, a studio who makes console games, need a PC Compatibility Tester for? Let the guessing games begin. Of course, it could be that they’re working on a new game that’s for PC. However, as big as a studio Bungie are, they have a monumental, multi-year project already in the works: Destiny. Released last year on Playstations and Xboxes, it’s a huge shared-world MMO-kinda shooter than will span multiple games and expansions. They seem pretty committed to it. 

So could they be working on a PC version of Destiny? Time will tell.

Awesome if it does lead to Destiny! I've played it on PS4, but not much recently...though the upcoming changes with The Taken King look interesting..

Inside this passage from GameInformer on 'The Taken King's New Approach To Storytelling'. there's a video. 29 seconds in it shows a Guardian running with a sword, but the movement of the camera seems dragged, as if controlled by a mouse rather than an analog stick.

This may just be a dev-control option (for development), or even just an extreme case of wanting destiny to come to PC. Either way the camera's movements does drag-pause-drag the same way a mouse does.

I'm allowed to get hyped over this idea, aren't I?
