The Destiny franchise has seen several years of expansions and live-service support. Destiny 2 saw its latest expansion just a few months ago with Lightfall, and even more, content is planned up to 2024.
However, a new survey from Bungie hints at the developer’s plans to move on and potentially release Destiny 3 in the future.
Why it matters: A new release could allow Bungie to utilize a new engine and make full use of the current-gen consoles. It would also eliminate some of the entry barriers with Destiny 2, allowing more players to join the series.
As seen above, Bungie asks players if they would be interested in a new Destiny title. While the survey does not directly point to a fully-fledged sequel, it is highly likely that this is what Bungie is inquiring about.
Both Destiny games have seen several years of live-service support. However, Destiny 2 has suffered from issues like sunsetting due to the constantly expanding list of weapons, armor, and locations added to the game.
Destiny 3 could fix this issue with the developer planning for such situations. Going by Destiny’s history, a new entry will also likely receive the same post-launch support Bungie has become famous for.
On the other hand, the Destiny franchise is big enough to warrant a spin-off. The developer could be looking to expand into different genres, similar to franchises like The Elder Scrolls, which have their own MMOs.
While nothing about Destiny 3 has been confirmed, fans have already begun to speculate about the potential for a new title. Meanwhile, rumors have also suggested that Bungie is currently working on another new IP, hinting that the developer has a promising future ahead.
