You can buy Destiny 1’s in-game currency on Steam, and the game is in the database

Destiny 1 is in the Steam database, and you can even buy its microtransactions currency… but that doesn’t mean it’s coming to PC. 

The sequel, on the other hand, is. Here’s everything we know about Destiny 2.

It’s in SteamDB as Unknown App 347300. The game itself has no title, but you can tell it’s Destiny because packs of Silver, Destiny’s real-money currency, are associated with it. SteamDB items are listed as ‘unknown’ when they are deleted or otherwise hidden to the public; unsurprisingly, attaching the ID number 347300 to a Steam store link just returns you to the storefront.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Steam listings for games that never made it to PC – the early Halo games are still discoverable in SteamDB. 

We know that Bungie and Activision were at least considering a PC release for the original Destiny. Silver was only introduced to the game in October 2015, so perhaps this indicates that a PC version was still being considered well into its life-cycle.

Clearly it hasn’t happened, and we doubt it’s going to happen any time soon – Destiny 2 is right around the corner and it’s coming on the Blizzard app, so we’d be pretty stunned if Activision decided to launch the original on Steam right now.

That said, it’s a little odd that the app’s record got an update just ten days ago, and what’s downright weird is that NeoGAF and Reddit users have been able to actually buy Silver. Here’s a screen from orichalcos:

Weird, right? Cue arch comments about publisher greed for letting you buy microtransactions in a game that doesn’t exist, even if they’re only charging a cent.
