Earlier this year during Activision’s earnings call, the company revealed that they were working on a sequel to Destiny. In case you’re looking for a bit more information/confirmation, the developers at Bungie have confirmed that they are indeed working on Destiny 2 and that it should be released in 2017.
This is according to the latest edition of the Edge Magazine as summarized by Mercules904 on Reddit. According to the report, Bungie confirmed Destiny 2’s release for 2017 and also revealed that Luke Smith would be leading the development on the game, which some have felt was pretty good news.
Why is this? For those who are unfamiliar with the team behind Destiny, Luke Smith was the director behind The Taken King expansion, and also the designer behind the Vault of Glass. Given how well received the content was, having Smith lead the way for Destiny 2 could help the game reach its full potential.
Unfortunately there are no release dates mentioned and no word on features or any kind of gameplay footage, but we expect that trailers and gameplay videos should be released next year closer to the game’s launch, so we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for that. In the meantime who else is excited for the sequel?
