Bungie Confirms Destiny 2

March 27, 2017Written by Jason Dunning


Taking to the Destiny the Game Twitter account today, Bungie officially confirmed that the sequel to Destiny is called Destiny 2.

No other information about Destiny 2 was given, but according to the leaked poster, it will launch on September 8 and have a pre-release beta. Reports suggest that the beta will begin in June.

According some Twitter users, this is the Destiny 2 pre-order bonus you’ll receive at GameStop (note: it may be for the Limited Edition only; official details TBA):

In Activision’s earnings call last month, CEO Eric Hirshberg said Destiny 2 would be more accessible for people who want a more casual first-person action experience:

For anyone who either hasn’t yet tried Destiny or hasn’t played it in a while, we think we’ve made a game with the sequel that’s going to have a lot for them to love, too. The cornerstone of that is a great cinematic story. That’s been a real focus with a great cast of memorable, relatable characters, coupled with some very nice ways to make the game more accessible to a casual player, without losing anything that our core players love. We’ve made it more accessible to someone who just wants to have a great more casual first-person action experience.

Your power, possessions, Eververse-related items, and currency from Destiny won’t transfer over to the sequel.

The final live event for DestinyAge of Triumph, begins tomorrow, March 28 at 10am PT/1pm ET. Expect Update 2.6.0 to launch at that time.
