There’s extra Destiny 2 on the horizon, it appears. Bungie is making strikes with its enormous MMO recreation, and whereas we all know Bungie intends to proceed to assist and broaden Future 2 for at the least one other two years, the corporate additionally says it is searching for methods to broaden Future 2 into different media.
Bungie put out a press launch discussing its plans for 2021, which embrace increasing its headquarters, pursuing new mental property, and extra Future. The discharge states that Bungie is almost doubling the dimensions of its headquarters in Bellevue, Washington, and means to make use of the area to develop new video games, in addition to to proceed to assist Future 2.
“Along with constructing state-of-the-art amenities to assist the expansion and growth of their gifted staff, one of many main drivers of Bungie’s enlargement is to extend the dedication to the long-term growth of Future 2, inform new tales within the Future Universe, and create fully new worlds in to-be-announced IPs,” the discharge reads.
The bit about telling “new tales within the Future Universe” will get just a little extra enlargement just a little later within the launch. Bungie says it is planning to broaden Future into “further media,” though it does not provide many extra particulars about what which means. Apparently, although, Future 2’s two massive bosses, Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy, have been working to organize Future for this enlargement.
“To broaden the Future IP and produce new tales and experiences to their extremely engaged neighborhood, Bungie appointed Mark Noseworthy (Vice President, Future Universe) and Luke Smith (Govt Artistic Director, Future Universe) to supervise and put together for the enlargement of the Future Universe into further media. Justin Truman (Basic Supervisor, Future 2) takes over the profitable growth management of Future 2.”
What’s unclear is whether or not which means management of the complete Future 2 recreation is passing to Truman, or if he is simply in control of the enlargement of Future 2 into further media–we’ve reached out to Bungie for clarification.
Usually, although, it seems like Bungie has lots of further plans for Future 2. When it was underneath the Activision umbrella, the developer beforehand licensed the Future IP for merchandise, however we have not seen any further storytelling outdoors the sport and Bungie’s personal releases, like its Grimoire Anthology lore books. Bungie has additionally introduced its definitive plans for Future 2’s trajectory over the following two years, with two extra expansions–The Witch Queen and Lightfall–releasing in 2021 and 2022. This is perhaps some indication that there is extra deliberate for Future 2 past 2022, however we’ll have to attend and see what that’s.
