To no one's surprise, Destiny 2 has been officially announced in a tweet. The game was recently leaked in a promotional poster which itself indicated the game will be released on September 8 (in Europe, where the poster was found), though that detail is yet to be confirmed. Such a release date would line up with Activision's previous statements that a Destiny sequel will arrive in Fall 2017.

PlayStation Experience 2016: the biggest trailers and game announcements

This weekend saw the 2016 PlayStation Experience (PSX) held in Anaheim, California. Similar to E3, the event lets Sony focus on its own PlayStation gaming platform, but without rival companies competing for attention.

Destiny player proposes in-game with help from Bungie

Players have been proposing to one another within video games for years now, but this latest story goes way, way beyond using level editing features or arranging in-game items on the ground to spell out the words "will you marry me?" Adriel Wallick and Rami Ismail, both indie game developers, spend a lot of time playing Destiny together, so Wallick managed to convince developer Bungie to help with the in-game proposal by creating unique, equip-able items and adding them to the game just for her use.

Destiny 2 said to be coming to PC in addition to consoles

When the original Destiny launched, some PC players were dismayed to see that the game wouldn't be coming to their platform of choice. That may be changing with Destiny 2, as new reports claim the sequel will be coming to PC alongside consoles. These reports also claim that Destiny 2 could potentially leave player characters from the first game behind, something that clashes with Bungie's original vision for Destiny as a franchise.

Destiny developer Bungie gives more details on leaving PS3, Xbox 360 behind

When Destiny's upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron, was officially revealed during a livestream just a few days before E3, developer Bungie clearly stated that the content would not be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, now referred to as "legacy consoles." In other words, all future development and releases would be exclusive to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

Destiny: Rise of Iron poster leak teases next expansion

Destiny fans, take notice! A leaked image of a promotional poster has given away the title of the game's next expansion, expected to be released this fall.

No new Assassin’s Creed in 2016, Destiny 2 coming 2017

No new Assassin’s Creed in 2016, Destiny 2 coming 2017

Game franchises can sometimes live on and on for years. Some even for decades. But being old and venerable doesn't always mean you always get it right. Sometimes, you can lose your way and need to find your way back. That might be the kind of soul-searching that Ubisoft will be undertaking, or should undertake, this year when it decided not to launch a new Assassin's Creed title this year. In the meantime, Bungie will be forging ahead with Destiny 2, though it seems that it is the game's destiny not to launch this year either.
