'Destiny 2': Release date set for fall 2015 or early 2016?
Bungie confirmed back in November, as cited by Cinema Blend, that they were already producing the next game in the "Destiny" franchise. Many fans have speculated that the company was referring to "Destiny 2" and not a spin-off title or a DLC.
According to the website, Bungie is moving with a 10-year plan for "Destiny." It is not clear if this 10-year plan would revolve around just one game or if several titles would fit together to tell one large story.
IBTimes reported that "Destiny 2" will allow players to move their characters and progression, including their gear, from the first game to the next. If the report is accurate, then this would make the transition more transparent and seamless while staying true to the 10-year plan for the game's evolving storyline.
There is no official announcement regarding the release of "Destiny 2," but the popular rumor spreading across the Internet is that the second game will come out in 2016 since "The House of Wolves," the latest DLC for the first title, will be released in the middle of 2015.
However, Venture Capital Post surmises that "Destiny 2" may come out earlier than expected. According to the report, game publisher Activision has announced that players can look forward to another "Destiny"-related title coming out this fall. With no official word on a spin-off title or DLC after "The House of Wolves," it very well may be "Destiny 2."
Launching "Destiny 2" just a year after the first game may not be an entirely bad move for the company (the original "Destiny" was released in September last year). Annual/ bi-annual releases have worked for the "Halo" and "Call of Duty" franchises, and it may be the same model that Bungie is looking forward to with "Destiny 2."
Neither Bungie nor Activision have confirmed the rumored release dates for "Destiny 2."
