A Destiny update from Bungie on its future plans has been revealed on the official blog including details of the final live event for the first Destiny before the developer pushes ahead with plans for the Destiny sequel (Destiny 2).
Speaking briefly about the Destiny sequel, Bungie said:
“We know that, just like us, you have grown fond of the Guardians you’ve created, so we do plan to preserve your character personalization. We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.
We believe this is the best path forward. It allows us to introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel, ensuring it will be the best game we can create, unencumbered by the past. We’re looking forward to sharing more details with you later this year for how we will honor your legacy in the future.”
Bungie has also outlined plans over the coming weeks for Destiny, which include:
- Age of Triumph reveal – March 8
- Age of Triumph weekly rituals – March 15
- Age of Triumph sandbox update – March 22
Full details will be revealed on those specific dates, and news on the Destiny sequel is likely to revealed later this year.
