This harkens back to Bungie’s original plan to rollout a Destiny franchise. According to MCV, Destiny’s initial announced launch date was September 2013, with a sequel planned for exactly two years later.
Destiny was developed under the code-name Project Tiger with the aim of churning out sequels every two years through 2019, followed by an add-on content pack in 2020. Instead, Destiny came out in 2014 and is creating large DLC packs including this month’s The Taken King. It’s unknown if Bungie is still planning on a follow-up to the title.
Destiny’s 2.0 patch hits today with the largest update to the game yet including a Crucible preview event that’s running for the week.
