Pictured: The Stadia edition playerbase
Just recently Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would be arriving on Stadia, and the current PC, PS4, and Xbox One editions would feature cross-save functionality: , even PS4. But one thing they're shying away from entirely (even though their former publisher Activision managed to get it done for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ) is cross-play. That restrict, according to a FAQ posting this past week, extends to the Stadia version of the game.
Given that Stadia is a brand new unproven platform, a lot of folks Destiny 2 but it's not going to happen, at least at launch. Here is the link from the FAQ: "The stadium is its own ecosystem, just like current existing platforms. Stadia players will only be able to play with other Stadia players."
The Stadia edition is immediately in a precarious spot. Folks already have their platforms of choice, so even with cross-save it might be tough to win people over on Stadia. Destiny 2 is a game that lives and dies by the amount of people online to play various activities with (especially matchmaking-less raids), so Stadia just went from a "why not" purchase to a "wait and see "for a lot of people.
