Bungie no longer updating Destiny; focused solely on Destiny 2

With only about 3 months left until release, many fans and gamers alike are in high anticipation of Bungie’s follow-up to Destiny, Desinty 2 (that seemed very anticlimactic). For those hoping that Bungie will do some end-game stuff for the original prior to the sequel coming out, you’re going to be disappointed. In a statement posted in the weekly update on their official site, Bungie states that Age of Triumph was their last update for Destiny. Here’s the official statement:

“Age of Triumph was touted as the last update to Destiny. In our constant watch over the community, we’ve heard many of you asking if the current sandbox will get another design pass. Our sole focus at this time is Destiny 2.

All hands at Bungie are committed to making Destiny 2 the sequel that this community deserves. We have a Beta this summer that will demand your bug reports. This fall will begin an entirely new cycle of updates for a brand new game that we think will be the best answer to the feedback you’ve give us since the original launch of Destiny.”

I think that’s no surprise here that all of their efforts will be directed to Destiny 2. With how much they’ll be pouring into the new game, there’s almost no point to continue updates for the original, especially with its release around the corner. For those that are fortunate enough to be attending E3 this year, you will get a taste of things to come. Bungie and Activision will have Destiny 2 playable for attendees. Here’s a taste of what you can expect:

Homecoming
The first mission in Destiny 2 starts with an attack on our home. The Red Legion of the Cabal empire arrives on our doorstep with their sights set on the Traveler. Fight back! Show them what we’re made of and become that Guardian that Zavala never shuts up about.
Countdown
Enter the Crucible to experience the first ever attack-and-defend mode in Destiny. Work with your teammates to destroy two opposing targets, or defend them if you’re on the other side. Choose your attack route carefully. You get one life and limited revives for each round.
The Inverted Spire
Fireteam up with two other Guardians to enjoy some teamwork and safety in numbers. Travel to Nessus, a planetoid that has become an alien machine world. Descend through a Cabal drill site to infiltrate a Vex stronghold and take down a three-phase Strike boss.
I will be there, and I really can’t wait to get my hands on this and try it out. Stay tuned for our coverage of Destiny 2, as well as everything else E- related.
Destiny 2 hits stores on September 8, and will be available for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
