Bungie to continue Supporting Destiny 1

Despite the official announcement of Destiny 2, Bungie announced they will continue supporting Destiny 1 “for the foreseeable future,” as stated by David Dague, Community Manager.




“Destiny 1 is still a game that will be there for players. We’ve planned to support it for the foreseeable future, so while we do have a sense of finality and closure of [the Age of Triumph] event, we are by no means turning the light off on Destiny 1,” said Dague.


“If [players] decide they want to revisit the things they did in Destiny 1, the game will still be there for them. And, for someone who might join the adventure in progress, and they might want to go back to the beginning and discover how it all started? Those origin stories will be waiting for them.”


While this may not mean we can expect anymore DLC to be released, trophy hunters can find comfort that Destiny 1 will still be available for unlocking its platinum when the sequel is released. Also, despite this announcement being made on April Fool’s Day, we at Trophy Hunter feel confident in its sincerity.


Destiny 2 is set to be released world wide on September 8, 2017 for the PlayStation 4, as well as the Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. The game will take place one year following the events of the Destiny: Rise of Iron DLC.

Destiny Sequel Confirmed For 2017

Today, Activision released their fourth quarter 2016 financial results, which not only includes some impressive numbers, but an announcement of some of their game releases for 2017.

The financial report confirmed a sequel for their 2014 online first-person shooter, Destiny. The report states that there will be a “full Destiny sequel in 2017 to broaden the franchise’s global reach, which along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth.” The Destiny sequel was originally slated for 2016, but was delayed and replaced with the Rise of Iron DLC.

The report also announced changes to the Call of Duty series, which will be going “back to its roots” in 2017.

Regarding the figures, 2016 was a lucrative year for Activision, with revenues up 42% compared to 2015, and a cash flow of over $2.2 billion, up by 71%. The publisher of Destiny stated these results were due to the success of Overwatch, their integration with Candy Crush developer King, and their success in esports.
