During a recent earnings call, Activision confirmed that Destiny 2 will be released by the end of this year. Additionally, the upcoming Destiny sequel is set to include extra downloadable content just like its predecessor.
Within the earnings call, Activision stated the following:
“Full Destiny sequel in 2017 to broaden the franchise’s global reach which, along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth.”
In a separate statement given after the earnings call, Activision clarified that current plans indicate we may see the Destiny sequel launch sometime during the 2017 fall season. The term “follow-on content” also seems to be indicative of DLC which could potentially take the form of large downloadable expansions similar to Destiny’s The Taken King and Rise of Iron.
At the moment, there are several key details about the upcoming Destiny sequel that have yet to be announced, such as whether it will be released on PC in addition to consoles. However, with Destiny 2 scheduled to release sometime later this year, fans shouldn't have to wait too much longer for a full reveal.
