So, Destiny 2 has been confirmed and we'll more than likely have the opportunity to play it around September 2016. We're unsure about what exactly the game will be like to play, or what it will offer fans of Destiny in comparison with The Taken King, but it's naturally already gotten fans talking about what to expect.

No doubt, Activision and Bungie are working heard on hitting their release date next year, but we're wondering whether something will be abandoned in order to streamline the process - namely, the Xbox 360 and PS3. Should last gen consoles be abandoned when it comes to the future of this wildly successful shooter?

At this stage, the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 are over 9 years old. I adore them both and I've still got both of them at home. However, in order for gaming to truly move on, players are of the impression that developers need to stop creating their products for out-of-date hardware. But what would this really mean for Destiny 2 if it was an exclusive title for the Xbox One and PS4?

With the added space and power that comes with Microsoft's and Sony's new consoles, fans of Destiny can see some of the changes that could come with Destiny 2 if it were to forgo the consoles of yesteryear.

For instance: we could see an increased number of planets, the planets themselves could be far larger, updates for the game would come far more often and a much faster pace, we could see more NPCs, have more vault space, and maybe even 60FPS could be achieved.

But is it unfair to ignore those that own a PS3 and Xbox 360; gamers who may be as devoted if not more so than those on newer hardware?

Xbox One & PS4 Exclusive For Release Date?


The case for buying a PS4 and Xbox One can seem like an easy sell for those that own them. But these consoles aren't cheap, and perhaps you're perfectly content with your older version. But if you have the desire to keep up with modern AAA content - and even indie content - a new console is something that you're going to need. Eventually, Activision will phase out development for old hardware, and we're wondering whether Destiny 2 will be the game that introduces it.

So what do you think Destiny fans? Do you think the Xbox 360 and PS3 should be abandoned in order to cater for the PS4 and XBOX One? Let us know where you stand in the comments below!
