Destiny 2 to Arrive in 2017

/ Feb 12th, 2016 3 Comments

Destiny Age of Triumph

Destiny 2 will be coming in 2017 according to Activision and its recent fourth quarter financial results for 2015.

Bungie confirmed the news in its weekly update where it informs players of recent happenings at the studio. Community manager Deej pointed out that the Destiny team is focusing on putting out a large expansion for the game later in 2016 with a full sequel set for 2017.
 

Destiny The Taken King

A full Destiny sequel is expected to arrive in 2017.

Activision’s report says that last September’s The Taken King expansion launched with record digital attach rates. Though it has rarely given out player numbers for the game, Activision says Destiny has over 25 million registered users who have logged nearly 3 billion hours in-game.

Destiny originally launched in the fall of 2016. It received two large expansions the following December and in May 2015. It was expected that players would see a full-fledged sequel this year but these reports confirm otherwise.

Quick Take

For the first time in months, players have finally been made aware of concrete plans for Destiny’s future. Most assumed that Bungie would continue the momentum of The Taken King and release expansions akin to The Dark Below and House of Wolves. However, this changed as the developer shifted focus to smaller content updates. While most new content has been focused on PvP, this news gives a partial roadmap for those wanting to know what’s next. And based off the mixed reception Destiny has received in recent weeks, it might be a good idea for Bungie to take their time and ensure Destiny 2 is in ever way better than its predecessor.

    Destiny should definitely take their time. The taken king was worth the year 2 date but the initial expansions and game story were relatively lackluster. I can handle another year off destiny

    You know when I hear the news about Bungie saying “expansion”, I get a little worried they do not know the true meaning in terms of gamers. They call The Taken King an expansion when that game is at most a DLC. I am hoping they do change their ways before they get swept under the rug by someone else. Best wishes.
