Just before E3, Bungie announced that they would be taking Destiny 2 to the next logical level and letting you play the game anywhere you happen to own it with those same guardians. If you switched to PC, or want to, or want to join friends on Xbox One, you can transfer your characters at a then-unspecified date. Now it seems Bungie is ready to launch their cross-save initiative next week.
The news comes from a fairly pithy tweet from the Destiny 2 account, alongside an associated frequently asked questions post.
Play your Guardian anywhere.
Cross Save arrives August 21.

The questions and answers do clear up a lot of questions for people who haven’t been keeping on every aspect of the cross-save changeover. Silver will be kept to the platform you got it on, as will platform-specific weapons, but for the most part all the important aspects of your guardians will be transferred over the cloud with a Bungie account.
Destiny 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the upcoming Stadia.
