Bungie social designers M.E Chung and Steve Dolan have revealed that getting clan chat into the PC version of Destiny 2 is a high priority for the team.

Destiny 2 launched on PC with the option for players to use in-game text chat during Strikes and Crucible matches, but the option to chat with clan mates or with other people in social spaces was sadly missing.

“Oh, man, we want it in the game too,” Chung said in response to a question about clan chat. “Getting clan chat into the game is one of our highest priorities, and we hope we can get it into a release as soon as possible.”

Dolan added that the team is also interested in public chat in social areas, but it’s not a top priority.

Chung also went on to outline a few ways that the team is aiming to improve the in-game chat experience for players.

“We can do a waaaaayyyyyy better job in the game to encourage players to communicate, like making more obvious public/team channels and a good time to enter (i.e., NOT when the player gains control when boots are on the ground), or letting players know about chat setting defaults up front when you start the game, or letting you know when someone is trying to whisper you, etc,” Chung said. “These are the kinds of things we have on our backlogs, but again, everything is prioritized against all other asks.”

Destiny 2 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
