Destiny 2 Not Launching September 2016
Although Destiny 2 was predicted to launch in September 2016, it will no longer be happening and will be released later than initially expected, as stated by a report.
While the sequel has not been officially validated by developer, Bungie or publisher, Activision, court documents published in September 2015 laid out the roadmap for the sci-fi shooter franchise.
The release schedule indicated a new entry in the series would be launched in September 2016, but this is no longer the case according to a report from Kotaku. Citing sources "familiar with goings-on at the studio," the site reports "plans for Destiny's future are constantly in flux" and "just last week higher-ups at Bungie delayed Destiny 2 out of this September."
It is worth noting that original release schedule in the documents were based on the first Destiny launching in 2013, which it did not. The title was delayed and instead launched in 2014 in order to accommodate "substantial revisions" to the story.
