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.

Apple Music executive Jimmy Iovine also defended the service's paid-only model stating that "artists are getting screwed" with free-tier streaming.“The fact is that 'free' in music streaming is so technically good and ubiquitous that it's stunting the growth of paid streaming,” Iovine told Music Business Worldwide. “It blew my mind that the day after I walked out on stage [to announce Apple Music at WWDC 2015], YouTube mobile was licensed.
