Those who’ll be jumping aboard the new console generation after the launch of Bungie’s shared-world shooter, Destiny, can take comfort in knowing they’ll be able to take all their hard work with them.
During a recent press event, investment lead Tyson Green explained that Destiny players will be able to share their saves from previous-gen hardware to next-gen hardware. That means Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners can upgrade to Xbox One or PlayStation 4 without worries.
“We’re interested in making sure that last gen character can move to next gen,” he said. “A lot of people are going to buy Destiny on PS3 or Xbox 360 and then get a PS4 for Christmas. Don’t tell me I wasted those last 100 hours there. So we’re really interested in supporting that. Our longer-term platform plans, I couldn’t speak to right now. But we don’t want to lock people in.”
Though it likely won’t be the case, it’s not clear if saves can be shared across console families.
“We don’t have any plans to announce there right now. Traditionally that’s been restricted by the platform [holders] themselves. We’ll just have to wait and see where they go with that.”
