A sequel to Destiny will launch this fall, Activision announced in its fourth quarter 2016 financial results. The game promises to “broaden the franchise’s global reach, which along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth.”
During a conference call Q&A, Activision said that they’re planning a big reveal that will “let the game do the talking,” and that it will have a “great cinematic story” and “great cast of memorable characters,” and is being made to be more accessible to casual players without removing the stuff core players enjoy.

A Kotaku report published today, citing sources within Bungie, claims that Destiny 2 is coming to PC in addition to consoles, and will likely be a total overhaul, meaning you won’t be able to carry over your gear from the original Destiny. At least three other Activision studios are said to be working on the game in addition to Bungie.
Kotaku also reports that Activision will be awarded a “hefty chunk” of Bungie’s stock if the studio misses release this year. Prior to Destiny 2‘s planned fall release, Kotaku reports that the original Destiny will receive an update in the spring.
