Rumor Mill: Destiny 2 Arrives in September


As Destiny dies it's slow, plodding death, Activision and Bungie have been making their plans for it's successor. We knew Destiny 2 was eventially going to be a thing. We already knew character progression is not going to carry over into the sequel...but, that's about it.

Apparently, it's going to be arriving this year. Maybe.

According to the fine folks at NeoGAF, a promotional poster has been found and subsequently leaked; blazoned across the top is a release date of September 8. As with Destiny, there is allegedly going to be a beta; pre-ordering will most likely guarantee you access, just like the last time.

Source: Destructoid, NeoGAF

I'm not entirely surprised to see Destiny 2 out this year. I can't help but think Activision's big E3 showstealer announcement has been spoiled by the unsullied Internet masses.

Oh well.

It is pretty common for these big secret announcements to get leaked by retailers before E3. So, that's kinda normal and I guess we should have all known that Destiny 2 would be coming out this fall.

They built a new franchise that was promised to be pumped with updates for 10 years.

Of course it's better to release Destiny 2 instead

September will be three years. Four platforms, two generations.

I think this one will have a better shot at being a great game, instead of just a good one. They won't be hamstrung out of the gate trying to accommodate for the previous generation's hardware.

another console game I didn't give two shits about, that's coming to pc... anyone have an opinion on the first one? I know it's scfi and it has guns and I believe it's an MMO... that's what I know and I'm looking for input as to whether or not I should give a shit about the second one.

Destiny was a fun core experience, but I felt like Bungie didn't get any lessons learned from predecessors like Diablo 3 or WoW. There was so much dumb shit when it launched, and they never really got it to a great status IMO.

They're a little behind the original schedule.

You can't play past The Taken King on the PS3 and Xbox 360, which also included them updating the nighties and the raids. You might as well have packed it up last year if you really liked Destiny.

Bungie has been emailing me to go to "confidential playtests" more and more lately. I did it once for the original Destiny, but ever since they usually only have them when I'm working, so I haven't been able to go.

I got soooo bored with the first one. I thought the mechanics of shooting and movement was top notch, but what there was to actually do got boring after 40 hours or so. I have a friend who played over 3000 hours last time I checked. Probably more by now. But he eventually fell off as well. I don't know if they can get me back for the sequel, it'll definitely be a wait and see.

Thank you! I've been bringing this document up for what feels like a dozen times over the last years, but nobody ever seems to take the time to read the passages I quote. I hope you'll be more successful...

Also, "Destiny 2" is where the PC versions start (again, according to the original plan).

Excellent promise. Solid foundations. Could/should have been great. Some of the worst execution I've seen in a AAAA (yes I meant 4, if it's not a thing I'm starting it) game in my life.

Everything that came out explains why it was such a shit show, but had I known then I wouldn't have been so commit. My friends and I pumped hundreds and hundreds of hours into it, for nothing it would appear.

A fresh start was the way to go but if I can't transfer my 'Thanks for playing the 3 year Destiny Beta' knickknacks to PC, whee I'd want to play it if we're starting from scratch, then I might just leave it a bit out of spite.

So in summary: Give a shit about it but... ... don't get crazy hyped for it. It could go either way. It could be everything Destiny was supposed to be (and the noise coming out of Bungie says that's their aim, like story and shit), or not. Keep track of it, but nothing more. They fucked up my goodwill.

It's not really an MMO. It's a...SMO. The worlds are not that big, they're all horribly instanced and it's all just a bit weird. If you played The Division it's literally that. That was lame too.

didn't play the division because it was clearly a pile of shit just looking at the game play structure... so if that's what destiny is then I'll just forget about it until closer to launch, then I'll check back to see if it's any better.

thanks for the info
