Bungie set to unveil Destiny 2’s ‘next chapter’

Developer sets countdown to June 6

Bungie will unveil Destiny 2’s “next chapter” on Thursday, June 6, it’s said.

The reveal should highlight the online shooter’s next significant content since its developer split from former publisher Activision.

Bungie announced in January that it was ending its eight-year partnership with Activision and acquiring the publishing rights for Destiny, giving it control over the future of the MMO shooter series.

The studio recently said it was approaching the dawn of “a new era”, with Destiny 2’s Season of Opulence set to kick off on June 4, with a new raid, titled Crown of Sorrow, available to annual pass owners on the same day.

“Right now, our focus is on Opulence,” communications manager David Dague said. “But after the Season has launched and Raid belts have been awarded, we’ll be looking deeper into the future, and sharing with you more about a new era for Bungie and Destiny 2.”

The MMO shooter franchise had around six million players, prior to Bungie acquiring the publishing rights from Activision, figures suggested.

According to Bungie, Destiny delivered a combination of over 50 million games and expansions to players under the watch of its former publisher Activision.
