When Destiny was released, we were led to believe that the game would essentially be the “vanilla” version of the title. Meaning that there would be no direct sequel and we would instead have many expansions to keep it going. It seems as if this isn’t the case anymore and we may in fact be getting a sequel to the popular MMO/FPS game.
During an Activision Blizzard earning’s call, CEO Eric Hirshberg said that work has already begun not only on future expansions to the existing Destiny but for the “next full game release.” The sounds like a sequel to me.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Destiny had the biggest launch for a new IP in video game history, breaking records for pre-orders, shipping and selling an unprecedented amount for a new franchise.That a sequel is being worked on is only natural.
Since a sequel is coming, one has to wonder if it will be ONLY for the current-gen systems. Though Destiny is already a sizeable game, the question of whether more could have been added to it had it been current-gen only always hung in the air. A version that is only for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would make it possible for Bungie to truly create a vast and expansive universe without the constraints of last-gen consoles.
We’ll give you more news on Destiny as it develops.
