Destiny 2 Has Now Been Officially Announced By Bungie

Destiny 2 Has Now Been Officially Announced By Bungie

In the original Destiny, The Last City was, as the name implies, humanity's last bastion of civilization on Earth. Panning out the place is falling apart all around him in flames.

The tone is tongue-in-cheek ("I did a lot of shooting, if I'm being totally honest") and looks to be centred on the proverbial shit hitting the proverbial fan. The new "Destiny 2" teaser video also promises that more details are coming this summer.

Earlier this year, Bungie announced the "Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency would not carry forward" into the new game. Beyond this, however, there is no additional information provided by either Bungie or Activision.

"Destiny" was released on September 9, 2014 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. With today being the last update to the now 3-year old Destiny you would think that you would have to wonder what's next. Last week, a poster from Italy was leaked that fueled rumors about the imminent launch of Destiny 2, as well as a release penciled in for September. We will have more for you in the coming days.

Ford recalls 440K vehicles for fire risk, door latch trouble

Bears' Hall, Packers' Dorleant arrested in Iowa
He played in eight games during his rookie season, totaling nine tackles, one interception and three passes defended. Dorleant is accused of trying to grab Hall despite police telling him to back away, the report added.

Wizards beat Lakers 119-108 to clinch division title
Russell added five assists in the second half, but he cooled down significantly shooting 2-of-8 from the field for eight points. The closest they came was two seasons ago, when they finished 46-36.

The Destiny Twitter account simply tweeted an image with the title Destiny 2 on Monday - with no other details.

Bungie and Activision continue the slow rollout of unveiling Destiny 2. Shortly thereafter, Kotaku's Jason Schreier confirmed the poster's authenticity. Now, we find Cayde-6, one of the leaders of the City's Vanguard, drinking and recounting a battle in a bombed out building that appears to be inside the City's walls. According to Bungie, the full reset will have some positive impact, it will give Destiny players the opportunity to check which gaming platform suits their gaming style. Cayde-6 is apparently at some bar, having a drink while he talks about "an ugly contest where everyone was a victor".

"Without losing anything that our core players love, we've made it more accessible to someone who just wants to have a great, more casual first-person action experience".
