Destiny 2 could finally leave our solar system next year

Bungie has spent the last ten years exploring the depths of our solar system, but it looks like it’s finally getting ready to move towards something, or rather… in some placeotherwise. At least that’s what seems to be going to happen in DestinationThe eleventh year, which is provisionally titled Borders.

In a recent interview with Edge Magazine that was republished through GamesRadar+Some Bungie developers discussed the future of the game, which is currently in its tenth year and halfway through its first “episode,” a notable break from the game’s seasonal model, though players are currently struggling to recognize What’s fundamentally different. While discussing what players should expect next year, Bungie also teased its intentions a bit, gesturing toward what’s coming next. Destiny 2including not only new characters and stories, but also seemingly new worlds.

At least, that’s what it seems to Robbie Stevens, assistant game director at Destiny 2, is suggesting. Speaking about what’s next for the epic sci-fi fantasy opera, Stevens revealed:

“A lot of what we think about Year 11 and how we start to get into the next journey after these episodes, we’re going to lean into that as well. Because we’ve been doing this linear thing for a while and we want to get back to expanding our worlds and world-building, expanding the universe of Destination in general.”

The emphasis on worlds and world-building is key to why Stevens’ statement excites me. DestinationThe tradition ofHumanity experienced a golden age of discovery and exploration before their war against the Darkness which culminated in the fight against the Witness in The final form.

The conflict decimated humanity and forced it to retreat, meaning much of the series has been dedicated to reclaiming space in the solar system from the forces of Darkness. For the first time in a long time, the Guardians have some freedom to go out and visit new, completely alien worlds.

It’s an exciting prospect that reflects some of the fantasy players have had all along. DestinationWhile they’ve always understood the need to keep the story in our own solar system, you can’t just give people a sci-fi game with spaceships and aliens and ask them to never expect to go anywhere else. Taken together, Stevens’ provocation, Borders name, and recent scene Detailing a character’s dream of exploring the vastness of space with their partner certainly draws us out of Sol and into seeing more of the galaxy!

Considering how much more we have learned about exotic species of Destination From the beginning, this seems like a foregone conclusion, but it’s exciting to think it’s close. Over the years, we’ve learned a lot about the Hive and their homeworld of Fundament, and while it sounds inhospitable as hell, can you imagine being able to see it at some point in the future? Caiatl, a Cabal commander who became one of humanity’s greatest allies, often speaks about the Cabal Empire’s former capital, Torobatl, which was decimated by the Hive’s war god, Xivu Arath. Despite eliminating her two siblings (Savathun and Oryx), Xivu Arath remains at large and the campaign against her could either begin or end with her reclaiming Torobatl.

The Eliksni, who became known as the Fallen, still need a new home world after the collapse of Riis and the failure of Riis-Reborn on Europa. The final form He even teases players with glimpses of the original Witness civilization, and according to this recent interview, his faction (the Dread) is apparently here to stay. And where exactly do the Vex come from and what is their purpose? There are such important questions that need answering in Destination Yet, it seems more and more like that. our The solar system is running out of solutions to offer. It’s time to come out into the light.

Destiny 2 It’s an infamously complex and convoluted game, so I’m looking forward to this soft reboot that follows. The final formI’m even more excited by the explicit direction it takes and how well it makes that dream a reality. Destination that I had ten years ago.
