Destiny 2‘s official announcement has spurred up numerous leaks and rumors, so popular gaming YouTuber Arekkz made a video to help us sort through it.
First up is an Italian website called Lega Network which leaked an image stating that anyone who preorders the upcoming Destiny 2 will gain access to the game’s beta. The image has since been removed from the site, but Arekkz sources a website archive for those wishing to observe the original post.
The same image also mentions a Cayde-6 action figure available through preordering exclusively from Gamestop. Cayde-6 was the Hunter Vanguard in the original Destiny, and if his likeness is being used as preorder incentive for the sequel, fans can assume he’ll be making a return.
Recent poster leaks detailed beta information about the game, which news outlet Eurogamer has gone on record to claim as accurate. The first leak happened before Destiny 2‘s reveal, showing a poster from the sequel that revealed a PlayStation beta and exclusive PlayStation content. Xbox One players may not be left out as a second poster of the same style recently surfaced, announcing an Xbox One beta for those that preorder.
The next leak all but confirms the existence of a PC edition of Destiny 2. Twitter user SenSnowy recently posted an image that shows a preorder for the limited edition of Destiny 2 on PC. While details like price and release date are still being officially withheld, retailers will still allow consumers to put down money for products that exist, which apparently includes Destiny 2 on PC, as well as a limited edition of the game.

Arekkz’s final leak is the least believable, but it could hint at an interesting direction for the game. Found on a German website reportedly detailing the PC version, a questionably written description mentions a “seamless open-world with accessible cities.” If it is to be believed, this could suggest multiple, interconnected social areas, much more expansive than what was done in the first game.
Arekkz’s full video can be found below. He reminds us that—since all of this information is based on leaks and rumors—fans should not take the information at face value.
Destiny 2‘s release date was not included in the reveal, but the poster leak proposes that the game will land September 8th. It is known that the game will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it seems safe to expect a PC version at this point as well.
