Various reports have indicated that Bungie's online FPS will be receiving a sequel in 2016. The sequel, which we're lazily referring to as Destiny 2, was due to receive a release date for XBOX One and PS4 (maybe the Xbox 360 and PS3 are involved, but we feel they should be abandoned at this stage) some time in the month of September, exactly two years after the release of the original package.
However, according to various sources, Destiny 2 has been internally delayed. We've yet to hear an official announcement from Activision or Bungie but we do know that Bungie's CEO left the company under suspicious circumstances following these reports. This gave us the opportunity to explore the idea of Destiny 2 and whether it was worth all of this trouble. Fans have responded.
Destiny 2, 2016 Release Date & Fans Reactions
I've been playing Destiny for about 7-8 months and it's my favorite game I've ever played. I know there are issues behind the scenes causing the delays in enhancing the game, and as long as those are addressed, I'm patient enough. Destiny is an original, and has done what no game has done before in the PVP & PVE world, and it's something worth fixing/enhancing/continuing. There are other games to play if you don't like it, but I believe the avid players/followers are willing to give them their chances to work on more. - Steve Carr on Moviepilot
Now that is an impassioned response from one of our creators - "it's my favorite game I've ever played." I suppose you can't really get praise higher than that! This was in response to the question of whether Destiny was a game that deserved the 10-year support that Activision has promised. Some agreed, others not so much.
Altough the concept of this game is great, to me it feels too much as a dayjob and that kinda ruins the fun after a while of constant disappointments. And then there are the constant never ending problems with the servers because of this outdated p2p crap system because Bungie is just to cheap to get their own dedicated servers to solve this problem once and for all. Cause this is also a very big problem for a lot of players who stopped playing Destiny because of this. So if Bungie won't decrease the grinding and won't get their own dedicated servers for Destiny 2, then I don't see a very long future anymore for this game. - Pascal Nagtegaal on Moviepilot
This was generally the divide we witnessed. Very few people were quick to instantly attack Bungie or their work, but there were criticisms. It's no secret that this game needs a lot work, and it's strange to be thinking of Destiny 2 when the original still has a lot of fans irritated.
The release date for Destiny 2 may be delayed until 2017, thus revealing the online FPS' greatest flaws as players engage with a stagnating product all through 2016. But will the wait really be worth it? Is Destiny a game that is worth all of the stress that Bungie is seemingly going through? We personally don't believe so, though a lot of us abandoned our Guardians many moons ago...
