Down for another rodeo?
It wouldn’t be an Activision earnings call without some quick mention of Destiny 2, and during the company’s fiscal 2016 fourth quarter report, there was indeed a note about Bungie’s secretive shooter.
Last we heard, the game was on for 2017, and according to Activision, that’s still the plan today. “Full Destiny sequel in 2017 to broaden the franchise’s global reach, which along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth,” reads a bullet point on the investor report. Yep, that’s literally it.
But for a series like this, there’s no shortage of hopes, dreams, and fears as we await details. We all seem to have an opinion about Destiny whether we’ve played for two hours or two-thousand.
As much as I couldn’t get into the vanilla experience and accidentally put off trying it again until it felt far too daunting to break into, I am looking forward to Destiny 2. At least, the idea of it. I want to play games with friends and, for better or worse (probably worse), some of them are obsessed with Destiny.
