Leaked Poster Reveals Destiny 2 Release Date

//cdn.themis-media.com/media/global/images/library/deriv/1390/1390921.jpg
PS4 gamers will get first access to Destiny 2 according to the poster.

Italian gaming website Eurogamer [http://www.leganetwork.it/2017/03/23/rumor-svelata-locandina-di-destiny-2/] is claiming that sources have indicated that these posters are legitimate.

Additionally, Twitter user Drunk Cat [https://twitter.com/alcoholikaust/status/844885433280610304] has also pointed out that the fine print of the poster states that PS4 is getting the game first, in the form of an exclusive beta. We have previously heard that this beta was slated for June.

We have reached out to Bungie for official confirmation. With this poster out in the wild, it should only be a matter of time before the publisher announces an official release date.

Wasn't Destiny an MMO, and weren't MMOs supposed to last for years and years, only requiring new content and patches to keep up to date and keep on spinning interest? WHY would you release a sequel and make everyone lose their levels and loot that they fought so hard to get?
This is just weird... and stupid.

Its not an MMO. Its First Person Diablo. Its frankly a more serious toned Barderlands. Destiny came out 3 years ago. Diablo got a sequel 4 years later. Destiny does not take long to get max level in. Neither did Diablo.

What's the problem?

Well Activision has decided it wants more money so lube up your wallet.

So are we going to have to wait for the expansions to make it worth playing?

To buck the trend, I actually quite enjoyed Destiny. And now that several of my friends have PS4s, I'll try to get them to pick it up with me and play together at launch.

Okay, I stopped playing just as the second expansion launched, but I literally had all the guns by that point. Multiple copies of some of them (I had literally dismantled like 4 MIDAS and I liked that gun a lot). But still. I think I'll be looking forward to this. Unless the FF7 Remake comes out at the same time...

Yeah fucking right Activision. We knew you wouldn't support the first for 10 years.

Who's to say "releasing a sequel after like three to four years" isn't part of that 10 year plan and they consider dropping the entire franchise at the 10 year mark?

Destiny 2 on PC or GTFO.

Also, hopefully it feels a little less souless this time.

I thought the exact same thing. What's the point in buying at launch when we know there's going to be multiple re-releases including the latest DLC afterwards?

Is it going to include an in-game way to find people to play with?

In other words, are all of the game's features going to actually be in the game, or am I going to have to go to Bungie's website to read Grimoire entries again?

It's an expansion pack where you have to relevel your character. Man, I played WoW back in the Burning Crusade days.

If they called Cataclysm "World of Warcraft 2", it wouldn't have made a difference.

They said themselves there were going to be 3 games in the 10 year thing.

Not really much info on what Destiny 2 will entail from what I can find. Like two sentences in an interview that they're going to put some quests and NPCs out in the open world, not just in the hub area. Along with focusing on the RPG components a bit more.

I enjoyed the first one (even before they did the Final Fantasy 14 style reboot on it with Taken King), but I'm kind of cautious of getting on board with Round 2 without some demonstration that they've learned from their experience. Rise of Iron took a lot of backwards steps (Though that was also some B-team that did the expansion while the main team worked on 2), and the constant tug of war between having a co-op shoot'n'loot and a twitch-based even playing field FPS PvP game was just inane and dragged the whole game down.

I just hope they put the story of the game inside the game this time. I mean, I've heard scuttlebutt on the internet that makes a lack of explicit plot in the original somewhat understandable if true, but on the other hand, I still don't know why, say, SIVA was a problem that the Iron Lords had to try and wipe out. It seems to be working pretty good for those Splicers and the guardians using SIVA infused gear.
