The buzz for the September release of ‘Destiny 2’, the followup to the immensely popular ‘Destiny’, is continuing to build momentum.
Bungie is preparing for their May livestream of ‘Destiny 2’ which will give fanstheir first inside look at what’s to come in the next edition of the Destiny series.
According to Express, Bungie will indeed showcase many of the heavy changes they made for the sequel. It will be focused on the tweaks for the different game platforms and also be the gameplay’s introduction.
Shortly after that a Destiny 2 beta will be released on all platforms, giving fans their first taste of the upcoming game.
Recently, Destiny 2 community manager David Dague stated that the team is working hard to get everything in place for the new reveals.
“There is one month between now and the next drop of news about Destiny 2,” he stated.
“If that’s what you came here for, follow up and await future notifications. We’re working behind the scenes to put on a good show.”
Xbox chief Phil Spencer spoke to Gamasutra about how Microsoft handled the changes in how games have started to last longer on new platforms.
“So when we thought about our tools, I said okay, games are going to live longer than we’re used to them living on our platform,” Spencer said.
“Which means from the service capability and monetization standpoint, we’ve got to go build tools so that they can continue to give content and services and other things to the customers.
“Seeing games like Destiny get born this generation makes a ton of sense.
“But also these games are going to probably start to span generations. You know if you think about like, Destiny 2 is coming this year — I pick Destiny because I think I have 600 hours into the game.
“But you know, Destiny 2’s gonna be one of these games that I expect five, six, seven years from now, people are still going to be playing that game. It’s going to be a little bit like WoW. Which you know, whatever its been, 10 years later, 15 years later, millions of people play the game.”
Spencer has lofty goals for ‘Destiny 2’ as do the fans and it looks like May will be ripe with even more information to give fans a look at what’s in store.
