Sources at Kotaku are stating that Activision’s upcoming and officially unannounced sequel Destiny 2 will both be an entirely new experience and come to PC.
The PC rumor had already leaked earlier in the day through a NeoGAF post by a user named benny_a, who claimed he had a friend who saw Activision’s employee announcement of a PC port. His friend, who works for Activision, was sitting next to him on a train, and he managed to catch the whole presentation. Activision’s High Moon Studios and Vicarious Visions were involved with making the port.
I know, that’s not enough to back up a substantial rumor, but news continued to leak throughout the day. Kotaku’s Jason Schreier corroborated the story with his own sources, who also state the game will be coming out in 2017.
According to Schreier, development studio Bungie wants the game to feel like a proper sequel, “even if that means leaving old planets, characters, and activities behind.” This means it will not feel like a The Taken King or a Rise of Iron expansion, but rather, an entirely new game. Both Director Luke Smith and Executive Producer Mark Noseworthy are expected to return to their original roles.
Kotaku was unable to confirm if characters would be carried over, but Schreier claims that comparisons are being made to the leap from Diablo to Diablo 2, a much more complete experience that sadly did not allow players to keep their characters. If this game is an entirely new experience, the chances of characters coming along intact is not likely.
Schreier suggests that Bungie will make compensations to those who poured hundreds of hours into their first Destiny character, but those plans have not been finalized.
All of this is pure rumor for now, and Bungie has yet to respond. However, if you’re forced to leave your old character behind for grand new adventures, will you be willing to upgrade into the sequel?
