After revealing Destiny to the world a few days ago and after sharing quite a few details about the new first-person shooter, developer Bungie has made a few statements about a possible PC version of the game.

As of yet, however, the title has been confirmed for the PS3 and Xbox 360, as well as for next-generation consoles, like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720.

Lots of Bungie and Activision fans eagerly awaited the reveal of Destiny, as plenty of leaks and rumors started appearing about the big project coming from the studio that made Halo and the publisher who releases the Call of Duty series.

After confirming that the game will come out for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms, but also on next-generation consoles like the oft-rumored PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720, Bungie has now revealed a few statements that talk about the possibility of seeing Destiny on the PC.

According to Bungie's Chief Operating Officer, Pete Parsons, quite a lot of the studio's staff is dedicated to the PC and that the team has factored in the appearance of the project onto other platforms besides the ones revealed in the announcement.

"Imagine the group of people we have upstairs. Imagine the games they like to play, and that I like to play," he told the Penny Arcade Report.

"The interesting part is we, from the ground up, from the very beginning, we have made sure that [Destiny] can be on multiple platforms. It’s one thing to say it, it’s another to design and actually architect for it, which we’ve absolutely done.

Parson also talked with Eurogamer about the same thing and revealed that moving between platforms would be much easier because Bungie thought about it from the get go.

"It’s a super-hard problem, but because we’ve thought about it from the very beginning, knowing this is a huge challenge, knowing the technology is going to be a huge challenge, it’s made moving onto other platforms much, much easier," he said.

According to the Destiny video we saw over the weekend, Destiny will also have companion apps on mobile phones, so it's clear that Bungie wants to bring the game, or at least portions of it, onto all sorts of platforms.
