Destiny 2 would be remarkable if for no other reason than that the game will be launching not just on consoles, but for the PC as well – a first for the relatively young franchise. Unfortunately, this seemingly equal treatment only goes so far; while the open beta event for consoles concluded last week, the open beta for PC has only just received a date.

According to an announcement from the official Destiny Twitter account, the PC beta will start on August 28 for players who pre-ordered the game, August 29 for those who didn’t, and will come to a close for everyone on August 31.

The announcement also hinted as some interesting data about the event, which was apparently “the biggest Bungie Beta ever.” Evidently Bungie will be releasing statistics about the events later, when the studio will announce a public analysis.
