Some people speculated that Activision and Bungie were to release Destiny 2 later this year in September. However a new report suggests that the game won’t be out this year.
According to Kotaku, their sources tell them that Bungie has delayed initial plans to release Destiny 2 in September 2016. It appears gamers have to wait a bit longer for a full sequel to come out.
Activision and Bungie initially had a plan to release disc-based Destiny games biannually. The gap year in between would have been big expansions like The Taken King which came out in 2015. The whole Destiny franchise was set to last around ten years.
However, things must have changed based on the reception that the vanilla version of the game received back in 2014. Many people at the time thought the storytelling of the original game was non-existent and they had other issues about the fairness of gaining new loot and more.
The Taken King was a step in the right direction as it had a lot more content, although it was mainly just all of the DLC added into one. Bungie and Activision must be planning right now how they can improve with the sequel. It’s safe to say we won’t see Destiny 2 until 2017 at this rate.
