Bad news for anyone who hopes that Destiny will become the robust, ever-evolving title that the world hopes it would be: development has begun on Destiny 2. There are some who thought that Destiny would be the framework for something that changes over time, with a true sequel never actually coming, but that is apparently not the case. The news on Destiny 2‘s existence came during an Activision earnings call in which CEO Eric Hershberg said that the next game in Bungie’s new franchise is indeed in development.
His exact quote was as follows:
Work has also begun on future expansion packs, as well as on our next full game release.
Because of Destiny‘s sales success, it makes sense that Hershberg and the Activision management team wanted their investors to know that the new franchise will be continuing in the future.
