Destiny 2: The Shattered Suns Coming September 2016, New Rumor States

Take this rumor with a massive grain of salt.

The first Destiny is arguably still not complete, relying on piecemeal content released every six months just to be worth players’ attention, and only getting anywhere near a critical mass of content with the upcoming Taken King expansion, but it looks like Bungie is, as discussed earlier, already looking ahead at Destiny 2.

This new rumor gives us more insight into just what that might be. Apparently, Destiny 2 will be called Destiny: The Shattered Suns, and it is due for a release as early as September of next year. So far, so good, but here’s the kicker- apparently, Destiny 2 will use a sort of subscription system, where paid DLC is replaced by regular free updates as long as you’re subscribed.

The actual rumor follows below. Remember to take it with a healthy helping of salt:

“Now for Destiny 2.0, this will be a completely new game. It is titled currently as “Destiny 2 – The Shattered Suns” and is planned for release on September of 2016. You will still be using your current characters. It will focus heavily on Osiris and his endeavors as he is the main quest giver in the game. A new form of enemy is said to be in development, Possibly Ahamkara? Couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone on that.

“Mercury is also supposed to be a big player in “Destiny 2 – The Shattered Suns”. The main area in which the guardian will explore. Bungie has also hired on Hollywood writers for the story of this game as well. A new voice for the ghost is also being implemented. Bungie apparently stated that they are not going to continue with DLC’s, but instead release free raids, planets, etc. throughout time. They will only be continuing with the main games after TTK and its successor DLCs.

“Finally as a bonus, there is not going to be trading implemented into the game ever. Stated,”Activision got sent a letter regarding what not to do on a mmorpg from Blizzard, and trading was on that list”. Also that there is no 6th chest in the VoG or has only been known by a small group of people in the studio. It was just a bluff to keep us occupied for The Taken King most likely.”

I’m not sure just how believable all of this is, especially given all the fake ‘insider leaks’ and rumors that have percolated about Destiny since time immemorial. A lot of it also sounds like Bungie has finally gotten its head out of its ass, and will actually do right by its customers, and we all know just how unlikely that is. Still, it is intriguing, and something worth keeping an eye on.

    Cool I think it will be even better with subscription service like a true mmorpg. Probably be accepted by the fans better.

    • Namesake

      There’s no reason for it though. Simply selling expansions would be fine, provided they contained adequate content.

    • Mohamed Rizk

      They offer us nothing worth a subscription. They use P2P and depend on Sony / Microsoft network so we are also forced to pay for Xbox Gold and PSN Plus!

  • Namesake

    No trading in an MMO is actually horrible advice.

    • Bpdelia

      Right!? That’s one of the BEST parts of mmos. The fact that a full uncontrollable economy grows out of these games is amazing. WoWs economy is fantastic. It’s auction house perfect.

  • Cole2999

    Seems fake. They “bust” numerous questions that have been around since Destiny started. Like that VoG chest thing? Completely random.

    Not subscribing to a sub par mmo want to be shooter, this will open the door for too many games to do the same model. Put hundreds of hours into destiny, big fan of the game, but not that big. For years people have complained over dlc, then subscriptions and lets not forget microtransactions. Yet almost everyone caves to it. Its only by refusing that this poor model will leave. Dont get me wrong, some games are worth the subsciption because of continuous work towards making it better for all. But bungie and activision are not worth this level of dedication. If this happens how long till cod or even games not related to the company go with this model? Nope forget em, please people I beg you. Ive been gaming for over 24 years. That might not mean much to anyone, but ive seen gaming. Ive watched companies work hard for its gamers, work hard to gain fans. Now they seem to slap crap together and throw it out to the public knowing people are dumb enough to pay based solely on the name of the game. We as gamers have the ability to put this to an end, yet deside not to. We need to do this now in order to save gaming for everyone.

    • Raven Arjon

      I have to agree with u on dis one..

  • Mohamed Rizk

    I will never pay a subscription for Destiny unless they go fully dedicated servers (no P2P at all) and also do not require PSN Plus, Xbox Live Gold for online gameplay.

    I am okay paying for WoW (used to fill Destiny came) because they were actually using this money to improve the game, and offer us reliable lag free connection to the game, and requires us no other subscription to anyone else to access the game.

    Some might argue that having Xbox Live Gold or PSN Plus is a requirement for listing on Xbox / PSN Stores. No, it’s not. As long as the developer uses their own login credentials, usernames and servers (the game has nothing to do with Microsoft, Sony network) they will be allowed to not require a PSN Plus, XL Gold for their game, just like Diablo 3 (Blizzard) and I think ESO too!

  • Edson Souza

    Actually, there is a 6th chest in VoG. The Praedyth’s chest, where we got his ghost.

  • jonathan M

    I don’t think a subscription model is even allowed by Sony, I read somewhere that Sony doesn’t allowed this because that is already why you paying ps plus for online play
