After three years Destiny 2 is finally making its way to consoles on September 8, 2017. The PC version will be delayed a bit. Previous edition was released in 2014 followed by major expansion in between the years. Now we have the new game with major changes in it. The game is confirmed to have 4K resolution support on PlayStation 4 Pro, but officially it is not clear whether it will be driven by Checkerboard or native 4K resolution. For the frame-rate per second, the developer has confirmed that all consoles version (PS4, Xbox One and PS4 Pro) will run at 30FPS. About Project Scorpio port of Destiny 2, Bungie said it could not provide information for the Xbox Scorpio port of Destiny 2 before Xbox E3 2017 presentation.

 Destiny 2 Feature

For PC the release will not be far, soon after the console version is out we might hear a PC launch in coming weeks. Talking about the fps and 4K support, PC gamers will have a more preference over console. They will be able to get a 4K resolution along with uncapped framerate that can reach to 144fps. Those who have a high end hardware can push the game video settings to much higher to get detailed graphic quality.
