Destiny: The Taken King artist Aziz Dosmetov supposedly posted some assets from Destiny 2 on his Behance portfolio. The images are no longer present there, but a Redditor happily scooped them up and reposted them.
We have no official word that these images are indeed from Destiny 2, but the “2” in a couple of the images and an outline of The Traveler sitting over a burning First City suggest that these are from the awaited sequel. However, these images look like they’re more from a future trailer announcement than from the game itself. Take a look and see what you think.
In addition to no official word that these images are for Destiny 2, neither Activision nor Bungie have commented on the leak. That said, the quality of images lends one to believe that they are indeed authentic. Jason Schreirer also commented on the same Reddit thread that these are rejected pieces of concept art from the artist, which makes it all the more intriguing. Did the artist say that just to cover his butt? Even if they are rejected concept art, they still reflect some of what is going on in Destiny 2.
Destiny 2 is scheduled to release some time in 2017. In the meantime, the next expansion for Destiny, Rise of Iron, will release on September 20, 2016.
