It's a pretty interesting time for Destiny, with changes being made behind the scenes and more new content on the way. Developers Bungie had originally promised to follow up the initial 2014 release with a full sequel in 2016 but a new blog post confirms that's not going to happen, in line with rumours over the last few months.
The post does finally have some postive news about the sequel though: "the team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017."
That's not a release date, and it's vague enough that it could still be almost two years away but players will be happy to know that the future of Destiny isn't just in very expensive DLC packs. It's not known what form the sequel could take, but maybe Bungie could manage to include more of the material which was hastily cut from the first game during a developmeny cycle which sounded pretty hellish. We're hoping for a little more in the way of story, something which could help to draw in even more players.
In the meantime, players should expect a major content update before the summer and a new major expansion pack before the end of 2016.
