Bungie is officially done with the first Destiny, the team has revealed.
The Age of Triumph event has already been said to be the final major piece of content that will appear in the original Destiny. Now, though, the team has confirmed that there won’t just be a lack of new content going forward—there’ll be a total lack of new updates at all.
“All hands at Bungie are committed to making Destiny 2 the sequel that this community deserves,” Bungie community manager David “DeeJ” Dague wrote in a blog post. “We have a beta this summer that will demand your bug reports. This fall will begin an entirely new cycle of updates for a brand new game that we think will be the best answer to the feedback you’ve given us since the original launch of Destiny.”
This means that any features fans may request will be forwarded on to Destiny 2, rather than the first game. Additionally, now that Age of Triumph has launched, Destiny will remain as it is, with no additional gameplay tweaks or balance updates. As Bungie added in the blog post, Destiny won’t “get another design pass.” The current meta will be the game’s permanent meta.
Destiny 2 launches September 8th for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release to follow later.
