"It's a huge challenge to ship four platforms and a massive opportunity to reach a new audience," he said. "We know there are a lot of people out there asking for PC and we know that there are a lot of gamers that would willingly give us money, but what we have to do is make sure we?re focused enough to bring a good experience to any platform that we ship on."What we 100 percent are not going to do is spread ourselves so thin that it negatively harms the other platforms," he added. "So right now we have the four platforms, which is a lot to focus on."
Micro-transactions have not been confirmed for the next-gen title but Osborne did state that if they do get implemented, Bungie will not take a pay-to-win approach. Destiny will launch next year following an open beta during Q1.
