The Destiny community is possibly one of the most tight-knit and rabid fanbases in all of AAA gaming. That title has carved out a beatuiful niche for itself, which means the game sustains itself, even when it could really use some content.
Activision know they have to bring in new players with Destiny 2 though. During an earnings call (via Gamespot), CEO Eric Hirshberg echoed that saying he hopes to bring in millions of new users with the game’s sequel. Also saying the game is still on track for 2017, he stated:
We’re on track and really excited for what we think is going to be an awesome sequel for Destiny in 2017. That sequel is designed to both excite our highly engaged current players but also to broaden the appeal even further, bringing in new fans and bringing back lapsed fans.
I’m really anxious to see what this game is. Thanks to leaks, we have a good idea of the broad strokes, but I can’t wait to see it in action. My hope is that will come sometime in the early months of 2017 with more outlined at E3.
