Destiny is getting a sequel next year

And a big new expansion is coming later in 2016

The sequel to Destiny is on its way. Today publisher Activision Blizzard announced that it plans to release a "full game sequel" to the sci-fi online shooter at some point in 2017. That release will follow a "large new expansion" for the original game that's scheduled for sometime this year. Destiny launched in September 2014 as the first release from a 10-year contract between Halo creator Bungie and Activision. The game has seen multiple updates and expansions in the time since, including the massive overhaul The Taken King, the biggest expansion to date. According to Activision, more than 25 million people have played a cumulative three billion hours of the game. Unfortunately there are currently no details on what the sequel might look like, nor how it might connect to the original.
