It was over four years ago, in February 2013, that famed Halo developer Bungie broke away from their successful franchise to begin development on Destiny. At that point, little was known about the promised scifi-based first person MMORPG, but little needed to be set to get Bungie fans hyped.
On on September 8th, 2014m millions of gamers across the globe entered Bungie’s new world, resurrected by their Ghosts in the ruins of old Russia as they signed in to play, set to discover a post-apocalyptic sci-fi universe with humanity on the brink of extinction.
Reviews were mixed. The game delivered on graphics and systems but tanked when it came to delivering on its over-promise of the best scifi storyline in gaming. This was one of a few issues the developer seeked to rectify in the four Destiny expansions released since: The Dark Below in December 2014, House of Wolves in May 2015, The Taken King in September 2015 and Rise of Iron in September 2016, with a fifth and final major content update known as the Age of Triumph, releasing tomorrow.
It has been quite a long road and a fantastic experience, and now, two and a half years later, Destiny 2 has been confirmed. As per Bungie’s tradition of sequel release dates, Destiny 2 will release on September 8th, 2017 on both PS4 and Xbox One.
Expecting a grand announcement? You’ll be surprised: the news came in the form of a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account, @DestinyTheGame, featuring nothing but an imagine saying “Destiny 2”. Suffice it to say, no additional details are known at this time.
However, that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating! One astute fan created a GIF pointing out that The Last City from Destiny is burning in the background of the announcement image.
"What happened to the Last City in that Destiny 2 teaser image??"
