Destiny 2 Won't Be Compatible with Streaming Software

Bungie says that they want to "ensure that every player will have a fair shot at fun and glory" when playing the game.

Destiny 2 will mark the first time Bungie's popular franchise will come to the PC.

Hardware capture through methods such as Elgato, AVerMedia, or a dedicated streaming PC is supported.

"We're excited that Destiny 2's PC version earned E3 Game Critics' PC Game of Show and even more excited that it will be on Blizzard's Battle.net, making it the first non-Blizzard game ever on the platform", Johnson said.

OBS and XSplit Screen Capture mode is supported.

Of course, it's probably important to note that this doesn't actually stop you from using Discord or other chat services to talk to teammates in Destiny 2.

Other game capture programs, like Razer Cortex, Fraps and Dxtory have similar limitations.

Like their game capture counterparts, many overlay apps will also be incompatible with Destiny 2. Notification features may still be provided through the third-party application.

In a recent blog post, the developer explained how they would regulate third-party applications. Bungie also included some additional tuning into the PC beta after getting feedback on stuff like power ammo and super abilities.

He added that pre-orders for Destiny 2 have been "very strong" and added that an "overwhelmingly high percentage" of pre-orders have been for the premium versions that include the game and its expansion content. "This may result in incompatibility between Destiny 2 PC and the features of common third-party applications".

While the increased emphasis on story is sure to excite plenty of people, Destiny 2 is, first and foremost, a multiplayer game and several of those elements will be available for testing during the beta.
