Activision Blizzard to bring Destiny sequel in 2017

While announcing its quarterly financial report for 2015 fiscal year on Thursday, Activision has announced that it will be releasing “full game sequel” of online-only first-person shooter video game Destiny from the developer Bungie’s next year in 2017.

Activision also said Destiny developer Bungie expects to release a “large new expansion” for the game in 2016.

“Activision publishing, along with its partners at Bungie, expects to bring a large new expansion to Destiny in 2016 and to release a full game sequel in 2017,” the investor note reads. Activision also stated that 25 million players have logged more than 3 billion hours in Destiny.

This would be the Bungie’s fourth biggest expansion since the first Destiny game was announced back in 2014. Earlier expansions were The Dark Below in December 2014, House of Wolves in May 2015 and The Taken King the largest one.

According to a blog post on Thursday by Bungie via Polygon said, Activision is working on a major Destiny patch for this spring that will deliver “a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.”

The developer Bungie also promised that the new events will also bring some new content to the Destiny game, but didn’t provide much detail about the event and its timing.
