Bungie confirms Destiny player progression will carry over to sequel

Do you like you Guardian? Like - do you like your Guardian A LOT? You better, because Bungie confirmed you'll be stuck with them for a long, long time.

Guardians are well aware today marks the release of Destiny’s first expansion, The Dark Below, which means you should expect to be spending a lot of time over the next week or so uncovering the secrets Bungie has in store for us. Considering Destiny’s sequel is already in the works, I’m sure many Guardians have been wondering if their progress will carry over to the next title. Well - Bungie has responded to this very concern.

Speaking with IGN, Bungie’s community manager David Dague discussed the possibility of Guardians having a longer lifespan than just being available in a single Destiny title. "The idea is that the Guardian you have created is something you can bring along with you on that adventure,” he said. "If you take a look at the way people have played other games for a long period of time, they've had a relationship with the same character for a very long time."

Dague’s vagueness was later confirmed by Bungie in an update to the original story. “Bungie has clarified with IGN even further saying that yes, your progress will 100 percent carry over to the sequel.”

So if you don't like your current Guardian, you better find one you feel comfortable with since you'll most likely be stuck with them for quite some time.

      I got to level 20 and just...didn't want to play any more after that. I don't think I'll go for a Destiny 2 or any other DLC outside of the initial purchase I made for Destiny.

      I'll be honest here. I'll be interested in Destiny 2 if it's on the PC. The shooting is top-notch.

      The game is just unfinished.

        I'm still playing and still enjoying it - think I'm level 28

        I see people complain about the game all the time and I agree with some of the stuff, but it keeps pulling me back in because the gun combat feels so damn good - I just want them to release some cool content to keep me interested otherwise I'll end up back in WoW

      I'm not interested. I have a level 20 Hunter or whatever that class is. The grinding is insane and the game is unfinished and its a natural sleep inducer, but that's me. I have friends who have not stopped playing this thing since it came out. Thats them. I will say though the shooting was fun while it lasted, but I'm not syncing anymore money into this game. Its not worth it, for me.

      No matchmaking for weekly strikes and raids makes this game pretty short lived, if you're not into pvp. I had fun until level 20 but after that the game became a boring slog.

      I wonder if Destiny 2 will have a story.

      It'll progress over, then some random bullshit happens to take away all your stuff and skills to reset your character. Now you start over again unlocking stuff.

        Your Guardian has a baby with The Speaker. You play as a baby.

          Please tell me this comes with an unskippable cut scene where the Speaker proclaims he used to use his sexual prowess to scare the children but now they are just scared anyway.
