Bungie has officially released the details about the upcoming sequel of the popular first-person shooter Destiny. However, it was also confirmed that the developer would continue to provide support for the original title after Destiny 2 is released.
David "DeeJ" Dague, Bungie's community manager, revealed to GamesRadar that the team would continue to offer support from Destiny 1 for quite some time. Though he did not provide an exact timeline, however, he made sure to let gamers know the team still believes in the original game.
Apparently, this is great news considering the strong player base that had developed within the game. Given that this large number of players are bound to transfer to the upcoming sequel when it arrives this September, there are still several others who want to revisit the first game and enjoy various existing activities. In addition, there are also several new players of the franchise who choose to play Destiny in preparation for Destiny 2.
It is noted that the continuous support from the developers to Destiny will only feature bug fixes, server support and customer service for players experiencing some issues. That means, there will be no additional content to arrive in the game. Bungie already announced that Age of Triumph would be the final event and content of the game.
On the other hand, many are hoping that Bungie can meet the expectations for Destiny 2. Players have lots of things to expect. For instance, it was previously reported that there is a possibility of some gameplay changes and approach to the series. However, it is anticipated that some gamers would return to Destiny 1 for the fix if Destiny 2 fails to perform as expected.
Destiny fans can enjoy the Age of Triumph as of now while waiting for the gameplay reveals of Destiny 2 next month. Also, a beta is expected to arrive months before the official September launch.
Destiny is now available on PlayStations 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, while Destiny 2 is scheduled for release on Sept. 8 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
