  EXCLUSIVE: 'Big Bang Theory' Boss Dishes on the 'Other Woman' Who Wants to Steal Sheldon Away From Amy! While Amy's away, Sheldon will… stray?!That's the thought on all our minds as we enter tonight's season ten finale of The Big Bang Theory, so ET called up executive producer Steve Molaro to get the inside scoop on the series' latest relationship experiment.

The PC version will be exclusive to Blizzard ’ s platform. Destiny 2 ’s PC version will come to Blizzard Entertainment’ s Battle . net , the platform that serves as the “central nervous system for Blizzard games,” Bungie, Activision and Blizzard revealed today.

The news isn’t a complete surprise, given that Activision Blizzard owns Blizzard Entertainment and has an exclusive publishing deal with Bungie. Destiny 2 will be released on Battle . net for PC on September 8th, alongside the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 console versions.

Hold back the Horde, because Bungie's PC version of its upcoming massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Destiny 2 will exclusively run on Blizzard's Battle.net gaming service.

Alongside Blizzard's own World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Starcraft II, Diablo III, Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm, Destiny 2 will be the first non-Blizzard game to be available on the service. And it will be exclusive, so don't expect to see it appear on Valve's Steam service anytime soon.

The sequel to 2014's hugely popular Destiny, from Halo creator Bungie and publisher Activision Blizzard, the PC version of Destiny 2 promises 4K support and custom key mapping for gamers. The announcement was made in a livestream event earlier today, and will give Destiny 2 players access to all of Blizzard's Battle.net social functionality as well as stream live gameplay to Facebook.

Battle.net is Blizzard's networking service and game launcher, an app you download for your PC that connects you to the company's servers and downloads and updates its games for you, as well as letting you chat with friends. The service is due to be rebranded in the coming months, Blizzard having decided the name is confusing.

While console versions of the game will be released on September 8, there's no word yet on when it will be available on PC.
