Not long ago, we got a Destiny 2 reveal trailer and that sent the fans of the first game to jump on the hype train for it. There are a lot of people excited for the sequel including players who weren’t fans of the first game. This might be mostly because of the promise from Bungie that the sequel will be a whole new experience and will favor a new audience equally to the veterans of the first game.
What adds to the excitement is that Phil Spencer, Xbox Head, is also aboard the train and is excited for Destiny 2. He expects the game to be much more popular than the original and it will have quite a large lifetime when compared to the first game. He talked to Gamasutra and compared the game to the famous and legendary World of Warcraft, saying that Destiny 2 will have a huge active playerbase years even after years from when the game is released.
“But you know, Destiny 2‘s gonna be one of these games that I expect five, six, seven years from now, people are still going to be playing that game. It’s going to be a little bit like WoW. Which you know, whatever its been, 10 years later, 15 years later, millions of people play the game.”
This can be justified by the fact that the game is being released on PC along with consoles unlike the first one. Destiny 2 being on the Steam marketplace can be hugely beneficial to the the developers because of the enormous number of PC gamers that rely on Steam for their games. It is not yet confirmed whether the game will be on Steam or if Activision will choose to release the game on a new client.
Bungie has confirmed that the first Destiny will be supported no matter what, when they were asked about it. There will be new content, although we’re not sure how much, coming to Destiny and player can still keep playing it without getting bored. Nolan North had recently confirmed that he was also going to return as a voice actor for Destiny 2, we’re all super excited for that too!
