Destiny‘s final live event is underway and most of the attention is now on its recently announced sequel, Destiny 2, but that doesn’t mean that Bungie is going to abandon the original game.
“Destiny 1 is still a game that will be there for players,” community manager David Dague told Games Radar. “We’ve planned to support it for the foreseeable future, so while we do have a sense of finality and closure as the theme of this [Age of Triumph] event, we are by no means turning the lights off on Destiny 1.
“If players decide, as they move on to new worlds, to experience new adventures and be told new stories in those spaces, if they decide they want to revisit the things that they did in Destiny 1, the game will still be there for them. And, for someone who might join the adventure in progress, and they might want to go back to the beginning and discover how it all started? Those origin stories will be waiting for them.”
It sounds like Bungie and Activision plan to keep the game running in maintenance mode following the launch of Destiny 2.
Destiny 2 is scheduled to hit Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on September 8th, 2017. Fans who can’t wait until then will get a chance to try out a beta version of the game this summer.
