Destiny won't be getting a sequel - more major DLC on the way

Bungie's massively successful shooter Destiny isn't set to get a fully fledged sequel but more full priced DLC is in the offing

Reports are emerging this week that the proposed sequel to the original Destiny wouldn't make it's September 2016 release date.

Destiny 2 had been long planned to arrive in September this year, two years after the original game launched. Things seem just as fluid as ever in the Bungie camp and there's a suggestion that they may just bother with a new game this year, instead focussing on the lucrative DLC packs which have been releasing at regular intervals.

Other news suggests that they may be changing the way microtransactions work in the game and also bringing more new, potentially free, content in the coming months. Before that, we do know that Bungie will be launching their first ever Valentine's Event - to appeal to those couples who game together. It's called Crimson Days and it will be a major, week long event that should create many memorable moments for players.

There will be special game modes and more regular updates, including additional weapons and more in February.
