Destiny 2 available from November 2017, subtitled “Forge of Hope”: Report


Destiny 2 rumours are flying fast and furious, with another thread on Reddit claiming to have insider knowledge.

User Inside_Leaks says the sequel will be titled Destiny 2: Forge of Hope and available sometime between 4-18 November of this year.

Potential spoilers lie ahead.

“The sequel will heavily focus on chronological events set after the 2015 Expansion ‘The Taken King’. The Cabal forces attack the city leaving the civilians and mentors of the tower defenseless. It is the Guardian’s job to fight back the cabal and reclaim the city,” the user writes, citing anonymous contacts.

“While doing so the Guardian will discover the long lost stories of Queen Mara Sov and The Exo Stranger’s motives. The story will culminate with the tower and city fighting back the Cabal empire resulting [in] the Guardian defeating the leader of the Cabal in the new Raid.

The user continues to allege that a team at Bungie is already at work on DLC, and the developer itself plans to release updates each quarter.

“Bungie already have a small team working on the first major expansion to be released in Fall 2018. Details are limited but it is aimed to be centred around the Vex and the Origins of Kabr and Praydeth,” he continues. “Bungie is scheduling for an event release every 1-2 months centring around a theme similar to Overwatch while also delivering new narrative paths and new game play mechanics.”

This new report also mirrored a previous one that suggested the title will be available on Windows PC as well as current-gen consoles.

Finally, a bit of good news for those who like to place their own personal stamp on their characters. “The new release will have a more customization character creation including facial hair and class themed face paint and tattoos,” the user continued.

Activision has confirmed that Destiny 2 will have a 2017 release date, but nothing more is known officially. We’ll keep you posted.
