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.
No longer shackled
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep brings Guardians to the Moon. There are new missions, new weapons new gear and an all-new Raid. This expansion does not require you to own the previous DLC for the game.
