Destiny 2 coming in 2017; one more large expansion planned for Destiny

Prepare to enjoy more Destiny in the coming months, Guardian.

Activision Publishing previously announced a follow up to Destiny was in development back in late 2014. and today, it announced the upcoming game would be released in 2017.

Prior to the launch of Destiny’s sequel, Bungie and Activision expect to bring one more large new expansion to Destiny in 2016. The last large expansion Destiny received was The Taken King, which launched on September 15, 2015.

Bungie made its own announcement in regards to Activision's reminding fans it planned a second, larger update to release in Spring 2016. The upcoming content release will feature a significant Light increase, new gear, and new challenges for PvE players.

Just last week, Bungie sent out a questionnaire asking if Destiny players were still having fun playing the game. This comes just a few days after Bungie president stepped down from his position, which may or may not have anything to do with how Destiny is perceived these days.

Even though things have been quite stagnant in the world of Destiny lately, at least it’s good to know there’s something on the horizon for fans of the game. While we wait to hear more about the upcoming expansion and the sequel to Destiny, go out and try out the special Crimson Days event going on during Valentine’s Day.

      About time they spoke about this stuff. They are months behind on talking about it at this point, so much of the community really just wanted to hear them confirm things.

        I think this is Division diversion

          Doubtful, the game doesn't earn money based on monthly players. The only reason they needed to announce it is to make sure people don't forget that they are actually still working on the game.

          It is important for the community to stay strong enough to keep interest going all the way through this year. That is where they could loose money, their community gives them so much free advertising.

      Not surprising. I like to think the main motivation behind it is to get away from the PS3, and Xbox. This is a more elegant way to drop support instead of saying the next expansion will only be for the PS4/Xbone.

      I always felt that is game was an experiment to see if you could break up a completed game and sell it in parts to the player. There shouldn't be a "Destiny 2" just consistent expansions and addons.

        I disagree. We need a full "sequel" to start from the ground up with some game systems. Too many limitations exist because its built for the previous generation.

        Same I agree with you ^^^^ . At this point I think they should just release 2 as a new game and just shove 1 under a rug and pray fans forgive them and forget the past.

        They are pretty much past damage control at this point, but yeah it should not have gotten to this point :(

        I hope they turn it around with 2.

        It will be really interesting to see what the next DLC is, that will say a lot about their future I think, unless E3 is insane in terms of what they show.

      Holy shit this is good news (spring update and fall expansion).

      With two friends joining the game this month I was worried they would catch up and move on, but this should keep them playing.

          The three of us generally have dissimilar taste in games, but destiny has brought us together so I want to keep that going.

      Huh interesting about Destiny 2 I have a feeling they are pretty much done with 1 minus the last DLC which will probably be really good and a way to say thank you to fans for the support.

      I would put money down that Destiny 2 will be @ E3 this year, I hope it owns.

      E3 2016 is going to be massive.

        Or it could be a way to say fuck you to the fans. They haven't had a good track record overall. It went from this:
        Vanilla- high disappointment in lack of content
        DLC 1- very little content added
        DLC 2- wow! Content for a week
        TTK- wow! Content, but let's screw it up by not feeding it well. We pool our resources into disappointing random events that disappear (which somewhat makes no sense) instead of pushing out 1 good piece of content with a longer timeframe.
        TTK DLC 1- wow, huge content that has little depth.
        Sorry for my pessimism, but this game gives me a love-hate relationship. It seems like this has been a game where they cut as many corners while maximizing profits.

          No your right :( pretty much what Greg said and why its his new "Stuff That Sucks" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEBWym_8DsA

          Well I hope they do damage control to keep the fans for 2 and make a massive DLC that owns. But that is just my own thinking what I would do, its hard to know if they really care(at this point I doubt it).

          The whole thing is just jacked up, I just don't know at this point. That is why I think they should pump out 2 as soon as they can but it better own, have a lot of content and not repeat what they did in 1 or else the death star will nuke them out of existence.

      Please please please give this on PC. I liked Destiny and I'd really love an MMO shooter in that fashion, but I just don't like playing time sink games like that on console. Nor shooters.
