Destiny 2 Sequel In Development

Published by on: 04/12/2024

CODENAME 'PAYBACK'

Bungie recently unveiled exciting details about Destiny 2’s upcoming expansion, The Final Shape. The expansion introduces a new enemy faction, an exotic class item that allows players to mix and match perks, and a chaotic new subclass called Prismatic, which combines elements from previous Light and Dark subclasses. The reveal has sparked speculation among fans, particularly regarding the potential development of Destiny 3.

Earlier this year, a Reddit user leaked details about the Prismatic class, referring to it as “Prism.” Their leak accurately described the subclass as one that enables players to mix and match abilities from different subclasses. The specifics they mentioned, such as combining abilities like “procure, devour and rampaging as stormcaller,” align closely with what was showcased by a Bungie developer.

What has caught the attention of the Destiny 2 community, however, is the second part of the Reddit user’s statement, which suggests that Destiny 3 is in development. According to this leak, Destiny 3, codenamed “Payback,” is said to be moving away from subclasses entirely. Given the introduction of Prismatic and its multiclassing and build craft options, this notion does not seem far-fetched. The Prismatic subclass was described as an “advanced subclass” during the presentation, hinting at the possibilities for a deeper system in the future.

 

The mention of a potential Destiny 3 has stirred up discussions within the passionate Destiny community. Opinions on a sequel to Destiny 2 vary widely, with some considering it either a ridiculous idea or an inevitable outcome. Developing the Destiny franchise has always been a technically demanding task, and the development challenges faced by Bungie have been well-documented. Since its release in 2017, Destiny 2 has faced technical debt, necessitating content cuts and leading to concerns about the game’s accessibility for new players.

While some players advocate for a fresh start with a new installment, others are hesitant, especially if it means leaving behind their characters and gear. Destiny 2 initially allowed for character carryover from the previous game, but a new sequel would require a significant time gap and potentially alienate long-time players. The prospect of a Destiny 2 sequel arriving after the three episodes following The Final Shape suggests a release date in 2025 or later, nearly eight years into Destiny 2’s lifespan.

Bungie, now owned by Sony and working on other projects like Marathon, has been postponing a drastic move for some time. However, the rumors surrounding Destiny 3 indicate that the time for a sequel may be approaching. If the speculations are accurate, it could happen sooner than anticipated.

The Destiny community eagerly awaits further updates and official announcements from Bungie, hoping for a proper follow-up to their beloved looter-shooter.
