Destiny Sequel Confirmed For 2017, New Expansion Coming This Year


In a press release this afternoon, Activision revealed that a “full game sequel” to Destiny is in development and slated to release sometime in 2017. In addition, the publisher announced that Bungie will be bringing “a large new expansion to Destiny in 2016″.

Bungie confirmed the news a little later in a blog post, also mentioning a “a second, larger update slated for Spring” which will feature “a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players”.

This news may come as a disappointment to the Destiny fan-base, who have been eagerly awaiting new content ever since The Taken King came out last year, especially considering the rumors that Bungie was originally planning to release a sequel sometime in 2016, but delayed it due to development constraints.

As for the new expansion, no other details have yet been given on what it entails or just how “big” it might be, and so whether it is the size of the Taken King or more akin to one of the smaller expansions is yet to be seen.

Activision are also expected to announce their quarterly earnings at some point today, which may provide some more insight into the commercial success of The Taken King last year.
