Bungie’s Destiny, on which Activision spent some half a billion dollars, was one of the most awaited games of 2015. It did well after it was released, topping the charts and bringing in a lot of money. Whispers about the sequel have already begun even though the first DLC for Destiny was only rolled out today. Turns out, Bungie wants gamers to feel invested in this franchise, and what better way is there of doing that than by allowing them to bring over their player progress to the sequel.

In Destiny players have Guardians. To customize and equip Guardians with the best gear and weapons gamers go through a grinding system just to get the best possible equipment so that their level cap can be raised.

In an interview with IGN, Bungie’s David Dague talked about the developer’s plan for expanding this franchise. He said that the idea is “the Guardian you have created is something you can bring along with you on that adventure,” its about letting gamers keep their relationship with the same character for a long time.

The developer later reached out to the scribe and reiterated that progress will carry over to the sequel 100%, there’s absolutely no doubt about it, so if you’ve spent a lot of time tricking out your Guardian rest assured, you won’t have to start from scratch when the sequel finally lands.
