Destiny sequel ready to launch in 2017

Activision has confirmed that despite no official announcements or trailers or leaks or… anything, really, the Destiny sequel is still expected to launch sometime this year, featuring a “great cast of memorable, relatable characters” and a “cinematic storyline”. So, totally different to the first game.

During an investor call last night, the publisher’s presentation included a slide verifying a “full Destiny sequel in 2017 to broaden the franchise’s global reach, which along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth”.

Although technically a rumour for the moment, the game is also apparently in development for PC.

Meanwhile, over on Reddit, some guy claiming to know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy (etc.) has alleged that the new game will be called Destiny II: Forge of Hope, and “has a whole new engine built from the ground up”. Bungie marketing director Eric Osborne subsequently denied the bit about the name, but he’d probably have to, wouldn’t he? The bit about a new engine, however, is very implausible, as one Reddit user explains here.

I guess we’ll all find out soon enough.
