Bungie Confirms Destiny 2

Destiny 2 will be here before you know it

Destiny 2 Banner

Destiny still may be going strong but that might all be about to change, thanks to the announcement of Destiny 2 today. Feel free to check out Bungie’s official statement on the matter below:

“Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.”

Rather than continuing exactly from where the first game left off, Bungie plans to make Destiny its own game – meaning that progress won’t be carried over. Sorry Destiny players, it sounds like you’ll be starting off from the beginning again (despite any previously-made claims). Character appearances will be transferable however, so at least there’s that.

Destiny 2 is slated for release on September 8 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and, for the first time, PC, with a Beta release planned sometime this summer. Will you be facing your destiny once again? Are you happy with Bungie’s decision to wipe the slate clean? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
