The destiny of Victor Stone becoming Cyborg will be explained in ‘Justice League’. How Stone (Ray Fisher) fulfills that destiny, it will be different traditionally from the comics.
In the comics, Stone becomes Cyborg after events that occurred at Star Labs in two different origins. The original origin was a monster being summoned from another universe that led to Victor’s body being severely torn apart. The New 52 origin had the Father Box from Apokolips being found and brought to Star Labs for research and Stone was there when it exploded.
The DC Films Universe take on Stone’s origin will be more grounded. Stone is going to become Cyborg after he experiences a car accident almost costs his life, according to Cedric who attended a ‘Justice League’ event in the Philippines:

Part man, part machine, Victor Stone is a former star athlete at Gotham City University. After a horrific car accident nearly cost him his life, he was saved when his father, scientist Silas Stone, used an Apokolitian Mother Box to reconstruct his body. In the process, Silas turned Victor into a human computer, organic with biomechatronic body parts. In other words, a Cyborg.
DC Films doesn’t stick to the comics storylines closely as there will always be changes here and there in the stories that DC are telling. I am glad DC doesn’t follow the comics strictly because if they did, it would be slow and boring storytelling.
