According to multiple sources, Destiny 2 will release late 2017 and will be available for PC in addition to Xbox One and PS4.
Word of a Destiny sequel coming to PC began on Neogaf where user benny_a wrote that a friend at Activision had informed him that a sequel was in the works and that it would indeed be arriving on PC alongside consoles, potentially widening the market for a larger audience with Destiny releasing for consoles. The user also added that Activision studio – Vicarious Visions would be assisting in the games development.
Known for his correct predictions user Shinobi602 backed up benny a’s post by stating, “It’s coming to PC. From what I’m told the decision to restructure was made thanks to a major memory ceiling being reached on last gen with regard to the Rise of Iron expansion, which was set to launch in the spring, not fall. Bungie decided to push out D2 since it was behind and needed much more iteration and took advantage of the Rise of Iron delays to use that as the content stop gap for the fall of this year.
Destiny 2 won’t feel like a rehash of Destiny with Bungie potentially leaving behind characters and planets to create an entirely new game, “I’ve also heard that Bungie’s leadership wants Destiny 2 to feel like a proper sequel, even if that means leaving old planets, characters, and activities behind,” wrote Kotaku’s Jason Schreier.
He continued, “I don’t know exactly how much will change in Destiny 2, but all signs point to the developers starting from scratch”.
Shinobi602 also spoke about a possible new direction, “major narrative changes are on board for D2. Both in terms of plot direction, pacing & structure. Major focus is going to be on the Cabal & Saturn“.
Bungie has yet to officially announced Destiny 2.
