News bulletins around the world rang March 27, 2017 as the perhaps infamous shooter development studio Bungie and publishing partner Activision | Blizzard confirmed the sequel to Destiny by a simple image reveal of the logo in grand gesture.
Destiny 2 will be “a completely different game” according to early reports and could support cross-play between the PC, PS4, and Xbox ONE playerbases – granted Sony and MS honor their word about allowing this type of connection to occur. The last game to do such a thing in a major way was Final Fantasy XI which enabled play between PlayStation 2, Original Xbox, and Windows PC players across an MMORPG experience that kept players engaged for years on end, expansions, updates, monthly fees, and new quests expanding and withstanding.
This in addition to other development ideas for the game could end up creating a success out of an IP many felt failed to reach its full potential while still serving as a flavor of the month for some and a dedication to others.
In Mitch Walters’ recent rumor mill post, this Destiny 2 Leaked Poster pointed to a September 8, 2017 release date.
