Report: Destiny 2 Won't Make It This Year
Last September, some leaked court documents told us to expect a new disc-based Destiny game "every year through 2019."
Well, either Bungie is backing off from the original plan or there was some mistake.
That's because according to Kotaku, a true sequel won't make that projected September 2016 launch date. Kotaku cited sources "familiar with goings-on at the studio" and those sources claim that development plans for the game "are constantly in flux." Recently and most notably, Bungie ruled out the possibility of releasing Destiny 2 this September. Bear in mind that the 2015 court documents were based on the fact that Destiny would originally launch in 2013, which didn't happen; it was delayed to late 2014.
So, maybe that's why the sequel won't show up this year. A lot changed in the development process for the original; don't forget that Bungie claimed it would have a "rich narrative." Yeah, well, that didn't happen, did it? We did, however, get some pretty great expansions, including the gigantic one in late 2015, The Taken King.
But it does seem like we'll have to wait for a full-fledged sequel.
