This week, talk surrounding Destiny 2 started hotting up after a poster for Destiny 2 leaked online, suggesting that major announcements for the game would be coming soon. Apparently, however, German GameStop customers may not need to wait until Bungie has made any further reveals for the title, as it appears as though the game is currently available to pre-order in German GameStop stores – and on PC no less. This stems from a post made by Twitter user and Twitch mod SenSnowy, who shared an image online of his pre-order receipt.
The receipt itself, which can be seen on Twitter, is apparently from the Hannover branch of GameStop, and shows the pre-order for the Destiny 2 Limited Edition PC version, which comes in at €110 (or $119). According SenSnowy, the pre-order receipt also indicates a release date of September 17, although employees at the GameStop apparently stated that this is just a placeholder date. In a follow-up post, SenSnowy also showed the bottom of the receipt, which confirmed the pre-order availability of Destiny 2 alongside other upcoming games such as FIFA 18, Tekken 7, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

Understandably, this reveal should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt, as it is not an official statement from any parties – be it GameStop, Bungie, or Activision. However, the post code and telephone number on the receipt do match up to the Hannover branch of GameStop, and the branch information added on the receipt would make it a little tougher to fake. The original receipt image can be seen below.
To make things more interesting, GameStop Germany has not just limited potential Destiny 2 PC pre-orders to in-store customers. At one point, pre-orders for Destiny 2 were also available from GameStop.de, and although these pages have now been removed, a quick look at a cached version certainly suggests that an announcement could be on the cards soon.
Rumors surrounding a potential PC release for Destiny 2 have been hotting up of late, with the fact that Destiny 2 will be a full reset suggesting that PC gamers could be able to get in on the action at the ground floor. It would certainly expand the player base of the game, and plenty of PC gamers could be interested in checking out the title on their preferred system.
However, those waiting on Bungie to make an announcement on the matter may be left holding out a little while longer. The developer teased the community with its weekly blog update, but it’s likely that a full Destiny 2 announcement will be coming soon. Just how soon, however, is another matter entirely.
Destiny 2 is currently in development, with view to a 2017 release on PS4, Xbox One, and potentially PC.
