Bungie reveals important details about the future of Destiny
The originally unreported sequel to Destiny, reported by Kotaku, has officially been acknowledged by Activision and its partner Bungie. The acknowledgement also comes with news of it being delayed until 2017. This shouldn’t be a problem for fans, as a new spring update coming soon promises “a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.” said in February 11th’s This Week at Bungie. The new Destiny expansion releasing later in the year should hold them over as well, with hopefully more details coming soon.
This news is big to me but does come as a surprise. As a long time Destiny fan I am consistently confused with what Bungie wants out of its IP. The news is great. I am always happy with more content, but it does leave me wondering what the main focus is. Releasing a new expansion, one presumably the scale of The Taken King, hints towards support for Bungie’s current game with Destiny 2 coming months down the line. The time windows for both titles leaves me interested to hear more news about the fate of their series. Naturally the original Destiny will be left in the dust but I am most interested to see when and how that plays out.
