After rumors of launch for Destiny 2 this year failed to dissipate, especially after a leaked poster from out of Italy, Bungie has made the sequel to its vastly-popular first-person MMO Destiny official today.
Bungie is calling the sequel Destiny 2, and Activision’s confirmation earlier this year that the game will be launched in 2017 have now been proven to be correct. Last week, a poster from Italy was leaked that fueled rumors about the imminent launch of Destiny 2, as well as a release penciled in for September. It also hinted at a possibly beta for PlayStation 4 before a full release, but so far only the imminent launch part of the rumor have been confirmed by Bungie’s announcement.
It seems the next installment in the series is again set for current-gen consoles only, but there’s no word yet on whether it will make its way to PC. Moreover, there have been little to no details about the gameplay, and there is good news and bad news about transfers from Destiny onto its sequel: while the characters will jump over to the sequel, none of the achievements or content will be transferred.
We expect more news on this front, among game-play details at E3 this year. Stay tuned for more updates.
