It’s no secret by now that Bungie is bringing its popular looter shooter Destiny 2 to next-gen (PS5, Xbox Series X). Today, the studio announced the Destiny 2 next-gen features, and it’s more than just a resolution bump! Destiny 2 will be available on the PS5 and Xbox Series X on December 8!

Other notes: 
  • We are offering Field of View customization on consoles for the first time. Our goal is to enable a FOV range similar to that on PC. We’re currently testing these settings to ensure smooth performance across each platform and will have additional details closer to launch.
  • There will be noticeable improvements to things like loading the game and inspecting character inventory. However, some load times are dependent on networking and matchmaking. So, loading activities still takes time while you search for opponents.
  • For cross-generation play, Xbox Series X|S players can play with Xbox One players. PlayStation 5 players can play with PlayStation 4 players.

Yep, an FOV slider will be available on consoles for the first time, which should be a game-changer for some — especially for PvP!
