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.
