During Activision’s second quarter earnings call, it was revealed that much of Bungie’s team are now working on Destiny 2.
“The majority of the team at Bungie is actually focused entirely on creating Destiny 2,” stated Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg during the call.
No other details were given for the upcoming sequel. It was reconfirmed, however, that Destiny 2 is still on track to be released sometime in 2017.
Up next for the Destiny series is the upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron. The expansion will add a number of new features, including new Strikes, new Crucible maps and modes, new areas, new weapons and armor, a new raid, and more. Details for the new raid, entitled Wrath of the Machine, were released recently. The raid will launch on September 23rd, a few days after the release of Rise of Iron.
It has been announced that Bungie will no longer support the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game. After August, players will not be able to transfer their game data between the console generations as easily as they could have in the past. Bungie has announced that there will be a way to transfer data in the future, but that they will keep the two version of the game separate for now.
Destiny is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Rise of Iron will release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 20th.
