Destiny will allow players to transfer their Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 save data to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, studio investment lead Tyson Green confirmed with Polygon.
"We're interested in making sure that last gen characters can move to next gen," Green said. "A lot of people are going to buy Destiny on PS3 or Xbox 360 and then get a PS4 for Christmas. Don't tell me I wasted those last 100 hours there. So we're really interested in supporting that. Our longer-term platform plans, I couldn't speak to right now. But we don't want to lock people in."
Green did not discuss upgrading specifics, and notes that save transfers between platform manufacturers (i.e., from an Xbox 360 edition to the PlayStation 4 version) are typically "restricted by the platform [holders] themselves."
