The highly-anticipated official Destiny 2 trailer has launched and confirms the release date of September 8, 2017.

Following the big Destiny 2 leak earlier today, where we discovered details on the story, DLC plans and Limited Editions, Bungie has given us its first proper look at the sequel to the sci-fi shooter, following an earlier teaser this week.

The following Destiny 2 reveal trailer is called ‘Rally the Troops’.

“Destiny was the biggest launch of a new console video game franchise ever. Along with our incredibly talented partners at Bungie, we are focusing on making Destiny 2 even better, with state of the art first person action, an awesome new story, great characters, and thoughtful innovations that make the game more accessible to all different kinds of players," said Activision CEO, Eric Hirshberg. “We’re also bringing Destiny 2 to the PC platform for the first time. Destiny 2 will make an already great game franchise better than ever.”

Bungie CEO, Pete Parsons, said, “The past three years have been incredibly inspiring and rewarding for Bungie. To know that millions of players around the world have forged lasting Destiny memories and even made it their hobby is truly humbling and we can’t wait to continue the journey.” He added, “We are looking forward to sharing a fresh, inviting story, and with the upcoming Destiny 2 Beta slated for this summer, we are eager to get feedback from millions of players around the world who will get a glimpse of the new adventures that will unfold for all of us. Together, with our partners at Activision, we are thrilled to get Destiny 2 in the hands of players in September.”

In other Destiny news, we know that Nolan North has been confirmed again as the voice of Ghost, and Bungie is planning to take the sequel in a bold new direction.

Destiny 2 release date rumors suggest a September launch, while PS4 players can look forward to a timed-exclusive beta phase.
