The upcoming online-only multiplayer first person shooter game - which is a follow up to 2014's 'Destiny' - was originally announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems with a release date of September 6, and publishers at Activision have now announced that the PC version of the game will come almost two months later on October 24.

The announcement was made during E3 which took place from Tuesday (13.06.17) to Thursday (15.06.17), where details of the game's beta testing was also revealed.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users who have pre-ordered the game will be able to access beta testing on July 18 and 19 respectively, whilst those who haven't pre-ordered will have access from July 21. Activision also stated that a PC beta is planned for late August, with more details coming "soon."

Although the wait is unfortunate for those on PC, the computer version sounds as if it may be worth the wait, as it is set to support higher resolutions and frame rates.

Meanwhile, game developers Bungie recently revealed they will not be making any more updates for the original 'Destiny' game, as the sequel is now their "sole focus".

After releasing the 'Age of Triumph' update, Bungie stated in a weekly blog post that the update would be the last for the first game as "all hands" are now busy making sure the sequel is the game "this community deserves".

The developer wrote: "'Age of Triumph' was touted as the last update to 'Destiny'. In our constant watch over the community, we've heard many of you asking if the current sandbox will get another design pass. Our sole focus at this time is 'Destiny 2'.

"All hands at Bungie are committed to making 'Destiny 2' the sequel that this community deserves. We have a Beta this summer that will demand your bug reports. This fall will begin an entirely new cycle of updates for a brand new game that we think will be the best answer to the feedback you've give us since the original launch of 'Destiny'."
