Bungie has outlined the future of Destiny – and it does not involve a Destiny 3.
In its stream revealing September 2020 expansion Beyond Light, Bungie’s Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy announced 2021 expansion The Witch Queen as well as 2022 expansion Lightfall. These are expansions to Destiny 2, which Bungie is running as a long-term live service game. “We don’t want to put another number on the box,” Smith said, ruling out Destiny 3.
The launch of Beyond Light marks a new era for Destiny 2, Bungie said, which involves the game’s transition to the next-generation of consoles. Expect to play Destiny 2 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox One at 60fps and 4k resolution, Bungie said. Inter-generational crossplay launches this year, and there’s hope for all-encompassing crossplay in 2021. Oh, and Bungie will add a dark title screen to Destiny 2, which will help those who boot up the game in darkness.
