Destiny 2: Has Vicarious Visions been brought on to help with Bungie’s sequel?

Destiny 2 may have just gotten a helping hand from the chaps at Vicarious Visions, after Bungie confirmed overnight that the studio is jumping on board to help expand the shared-world shooter’s already-expansion universe.

For those scratching their heads, Vicarious Visions is an Activision-owned company who has specialised in the Skylanders series in recent years, and is also masterminding 2017’s Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy for the PlayStation 4.

Destiny 2 release date set for late 2017

Given that the studio has been brought in to help expand Destiny, it is very likely the company is in fact helping Bungie work on Destiny 2, as it is unlikely at this point we’ll be seeing anymore substantial DLC drops for the original game. Plus, we know that Destiny 2 is scheduled to arrive at some point next year, so the timing seems right.

Destiny was released back in September 2014 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Bungie has rolled out four major expansions for the shared-world shooter to date: The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King, and this year’s Rise of Iron. In addition, it has also offered time-based events such as Festival of the Lost and the Sparrow Racing League to keep players entertained.

This winter will see the launch of Destiny: The Dawning, which is special holiday event offering a new Sparrow Racing League complete with extra tracks, new Record Book, tweaked Strikes, plus two new Exotic weapons, including the return of the fan-favorite Sniper Rifle, the Ice Breaker.

Destiny 2 is rumored to incorporate the characters of Xur and the Cryptarch within its main narrative, and Activision has promised that the sequel will not suffer from the same content droughts as its predecessor. Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
