Age of Triumph, the most recent patch for Destiny was the final update for the game. Bungie has stated that they wanted to focus exclusively on the sequel in a blog post on their website. “All hands at Bungie are committed to making Destiny 2 the sequel that this community deserves.” They also confirmed that there will be Destiny 2 information at E3 2017.
While many fans were disappointed at both the confirmation of no updates, and the lack of a confirmed date for the public beta, there was also excitement at the confirmation of the new Arcstride Hunter subclass being shown off at E3 2017. Players are also expecting to finally get an official date for the beta during the show.
Some did not take the news quietly however, complaining about how Destiny’s PvP mode was “unplayable” and how sad they were to see it “ruined”. One redditor in the comment section laments, “I’m very sad that destiny 1 is being left in such a poor state of balance; probably the worst it’s ever been”. Similar dissenting opinions are being voiced, but they’re the minority by far, mostly drowned out by hopeful fans looking to get a beta date at E3.
Destiny 2 is set to launch on September 8th on PS4 and Xbox One as well as PC.
