What you need to know

  • Bungie confirmed that cross save will begin on August 21, 2019.

Updated August 21, 2019: Destiny 2 cross-save support is now live. You can handle it by going to here and logging into your various accounts.

Today, Bungie confirmed that Destiny 2 cross save is coming on August 21, 2019. Cross save support will allow players to carry their Guardians and rewards across different platforms. Using this feature, players will designate one account as their "Active Account", and from that point on, can use that account's Guardians and rewards on other platforms. Cross save will be compatible with all versions of Destiny 2: Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia.

Do note that if you've purchased any Silver, you'll need to spend it on that account, as Silver will not transfer between platforms, nor will items purchased with Silver.

That's not all the important Destiny 2 news, though. For PC players, account transfer from Battle.net to Steam is coming on August 20 and Bungie has put together a funny little video explaining the highlights:

If even a Titan can do it, then no one has anything to worry about (signed, a Titan main.) Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is currently set to release on October 1, 2019 after being slightly delayed.

  • It's a shame you can't merge your accounts. I have the game on both consoles and my main character on each console is pretty high level. I would hate to lose either one.
  • Yeah, it's only really worth it if you are going from console to pc; and you have to have never played pc. Destiny 2 was on console first, so all your year 1 progress becomes moot if you started playing on PC after its launch. This kind of Cross-Save kinda sucks.
