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.

"Gigantic"? I wouldn't call it that at all.

Regardless, this is good news considering. I want them to deliver on the premise they promised. It's to early for them to fulfill that. If Destiny 2 is Destiny 1.5 I want nothing to do with it.

I want the large mmo type open world they claimed the game would have, I want the strong narrative - relatively speaking of course - and I want a loot system that doesn't require you to have 6 people available to do the raids 100,000 times.

With all the big games that are due to release this year, how many of you are/were waiting for Destiny 2 this year?

Heck, there was an article on The Verge today that stated this is the best time to quit Destiny since they're not going to release anything bigger and/or better than the Taken King.

Yeah, I don't want to say I've quit Destiny entirely, but... after finishing the Taken King raid, I feel I'm pretty much complete, in terms of my accomplishments in this game.
I did satisfy all the requirements to get the Year 1 special emblem, which I'm proud of. =)

Now that I've been off Destiny for 2 months, I've been able to finish AC: Unity and The Order 1886.
My backlog is huge and have many more games to finish...

You're not getting my $60 Bungie! Give us a Borderlands 3. 2kgames will get my $60. That's what I was fooled into thinking Destany 1 was for some reason.

Because that's what everyone compared it to. Its also what Bungie described. We were all fooled. We were all beta testers for a new type of content add ons and we all took the bait.

I'll take Borderlands over Destiny any day.
