"Destiny 2" in the Works
Activision Publishing CEO says work has begun on "our next full game release" in the Destiny series.
Today during a post-earnings financial call, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed that development has started on the next "full game" in the Destiny series.
Speaking about the future of Destiny, Hirshberg said: "Work has also begun on future expansion packs, as well as on our next full game release."
A sequel to Destiny is not altogether surprising, given the fact that Activision Publishing has regularly maintained that it has a 10-year vision for the Destiny franchise. According to Activision, Bungie has a Lord of the Rings-sized narrative in mind for Destiny.
In addition, according to Bungie-Activision contract deals that emerged in 2012 called for multiple sequels to Destiny.
Earlier today, we learned that Destiny has 9.5 million "registered users" and that the average player is spending three hours in the game every day.
Activision did not share any further details about Destiny's sequel such as when it will be released or what new content and features it may include.
Asked for further details about the Destiny sequel, an Activision representative told GameSpot: "At Activision we are very pleased at the launch of Destiny and look forward to working with Bungie to expand the universe over the course of our 10-year relationship. We have nothing further to announce at this time."
