According to a number of sources close to Kotaku, the follow up to Bungie’s MMO will be coming to PC, but player progress may not be.
Play spaces are said to be bigger and denser in Destiny 2, with more open spaces such as towns and outposts where players can pick up missions and activities while still in control of their character, rather than being sent back to a loading screen and menu.
The Cabal and Saturn are said to feature heavily in the sequel, with Saturn apparently boasting a play space bigger than any of the combined areas currently found in game.
As you may expect after their recent omission from the Rise of Iron expansion, Destiny 2 will not be launching on PS3 or Xbox 360, a decision that will allow Bungie to move forward in terms of the sequel’s engine.
What’s less clear is whether Destiny’s current haul of content will be available in the sequel in any form, or if the game will continue to exist as its own client, separate from Destiny 2.
As ever with sources and rumours, take this with a pinch of salt for the time being, but with Destiny 2 said to be launching sometime next year, hopefully it won’t be too long before we hear some official word from Bungie or Activision and can start to separate fact from fiction.
