    NOW WITH MORE STORY CONTENT! *ahem*​
    In recent news, Activision and Bungie have both announced that the development process of Destiny 2 has already been started, and this is likely to keep in line with their 10 year plan for the franchise. This coincies with the information found in the Activision v Infinity Ward court case, where the 10 year plan originated. Further detailing stated that​
    In a recent article, it was stated that,
    :arrow: Source
    :arrow: Activision v Infinity Ward case details

    So far, this announcement has led to some fan controversy, leading people to say Bungie and Activision are focusing way to much on future endeavors and not enough on the releases they already have out. What do you think about this move, and what do you think about Destiny in general?

    I forgot
    I would much rather they work on just expansions right now than a sequel. I don't want any official sequels to Destiny so soon, especially when the current release has so much potential for more content. Unless these "major retail" releases are just big huge expansion packs, I guess I couldn't care less about a "sequel"

    I'm surprised to see a mediocre game getting a sequel so soon. :rolleyes:

    *cough*

    On a more serious note, I'm shocked, as all I've heard is a bunch of rabble saying how good this game is. Seems more logical to introduce other expansions or more content.

    *Sigh*... I was afraid of this from the beginning. At least it's not a major release every year.

    If I'm being fully honest with myself, it's a mediocre game, but it's fun to play with friends, and I'd be interested in sequels. Though I suppose the same could be said of any big online multiplayer game, if I take the time to look for fun ones.

    Didn't they say years ago that they put down a total of 500m budget and several years of planned releases after the first title from the get-go? This serie was meant to be the futuristic CoD counterpart in terms of milking from its very conception, shouldn't be a surprise to nobody.

    When it comes to modern console game series, sequels are really expansions most of the times. They just like to call it sequel so that they have an excuse to sell it full price to you.

    So now this game is going to be milked too? I am so glad to live in an era of gaming, that any and every game will be milked to death.

    This was the most boring game I have played in a looooong time.
    IMHO, they should focus om something new instead of a sequel.

    I suggest you stop playing your PS.

    Destiny is short and buggy, but it has an amazing concept and a good gameplay mechanics on other hand. If they do sequels with huge worlds to explore (like 3 or 4 times the current content) It worth buying, but if they do like destiny 1, with 4 planets/moon only (and the maps on those planets/moon are not that big), I'll not even look at it.
    What makes me give the benefit of doubt to Bungie is the fact that it still is a seventh generation game.

    It's Activision. Did you really expect anything else?

    It didn't. They told gamer informer months before destiny launch, the sequel would be out by the end of 2015

    I haven't been paying attention that much, but isn't Destiny already like MMO shooter with most of the story not explained so you could buy it later as DLC and some people are actually defending it because they have promised content spread out for 10+ years? Also requirement for online connection even for single player game but nobody seems to bat an eye for some reason.

    Well I'm glad they decided to release shooter title only on consoles so I won't even have to look that way.

    I don't understand Activision at all. They really like beating the dead horse and also removing games from digital sales so that games you want to buy from them aren't available and ones that are available require you to be millionaire.

    Well I hope the story will be far better because Destiny was really disappointing with this point...

    Ladies and gets, this is the new Call of Duty.

    For what it's worth Call of Duty actually had a decent story sometimes.

    What's so hard to understand about billions and billions of dollars in revenue?

    There is no single player game. There is AI enemies, but other player are aways around, and most of time this players do not make the gameplay experience better at all

    billions of dollars in revenue = 4 billions of dollars in revenue last year

    I'm confident that they can milk better than that
