According to a recent report, the sequel to Destiny suffered a “reboot” and it is now under the control of the director of The Taken King, Luke Smith, after a reorganization in Bungie.
Thus, through the report announcing the filtration of the expansion of Rise of Iron, Kotaku mentioned that according to its sources, the development of Destiny 2 was rebooted. “From what we hear, Destiny 2 was recently rebooted, with Taken King director Luke Smith taking the reins of that project in the wake of a Bungie staff reorganization,” said the medium.
All we have assurance at the moment is that Destiny 2 will arrive in 2017, as a full sequel, according to Activision in February this year. It was expected that the game could be debuted in 2016, so the delay to 2017 may be the result of this assumption of reboot.
In related information, yesterday a marketing means of material was leaked showing the next expansion for Destiny that will be called as Rise of Iron. This will add a new raid content and will be bigger than The Dark Below and House of Wolves.
For now there is no official information from Activision and Bungie, so we must wait until June for the news to arrive, probably because companies will reveal more details during E3 2016 in Los Angeles, California.
