Destiny 3 news

Before January 2022, the release of Destiny 3 was extremely unlikely. Bungie separated from Activision but did not announce plans to expand the legendary Destiny series. There was no official information about the release of the game and no official comments from the developers on the game’s release. Even though information that the game has been under development since 2018 appeared a few times on the internet, it appeared to be little more than rumour.

One of the main reasons why Bungie did not start developing the new Destiny game is that it wouldn't be able to keep two projects alive. The only option for it to create Destiny 3 was to forget about Destiny 2 and start working on the new project. But this idea had significant reputational and economic risks. Therefore, Bungie refused it.

But in January 2022, the fateful decision was taken for Destiny 3 and other Bungie projects. Sony bought Bungie for $3.6 billion. It was made public on July 15, as Sony on Twitter congratulated Bungie in their family. Also, the deal’s final price was slightly changed to $3.7 billion. Such a purchase entirely changes the vision of the company on a new Destiny game.

The only reason why Sony could offer such a price for Bungie is that it has significant plans to promote this company and its games. Even though Destiny 2 is a legendary video game with significant popularity worldwide, like any other game, it tends to lose popularity over time, resulting in economic problems. Sony would never invest in a studio on a downward trajectory.

However, there are still no official comments about the release of Destiny 3. We only have the official post on Bungie’s Twitter about the new development strategy. The new details about this strategy are likely to be released next year in 2024.

But the most likely option is that Sony will try to draw as much attention to the Destiny 3 release as possible and then make the game exclusive to their new console. Sony purchased Bungie only a few months ago, which is not enough to create such a big video game as Destiny 3.

Honestly, it is pretty challenging to talk about the particular date of the Destiny 3 release. There is no information or comments about the current development of the game.

As such, the most likely release date for Destiny 3 is something between 2025 and 2027, depending on when Bungie leaves Destiny 2 behind.

Five things people would like to see in Destiny 3

Destiny 3 may be a fair way off, but that doesn't mean we can't start getting excited. Check the list below. There are collected the most widely requested improvements for Destiny 3.

Expanded factions

Factions are one of the most exciting parts of Destiny 2, but many people complain that they are too underbaked. Bungie just needs to add new factions, enemies, and various missions to make factions interesting for many people worldwide.

Mod support

Talking about the PC version of Destiny, many people worldwide are eager to see mod support in the game. It wouldn't be easy given the competitive nature and PvP modes, but if Bungie can add it without ruining the game balance, mods would elongate the lifespan of Destiny 3.

Crossplay from release

Even though cross-play features nowadays are available in Destiny 2, they were not present in the game when it first released. Hopefully, Bungie will not repeat this mistake with Destiny 3.

PvP and PvE Separation

One more thing people expect from Destiny 3 is a separation between solo and multiplayer game modes. Players want to have both game modes wholly developed, with the possibility to switch between them easily. That way you can explore the narrative while also diving into raids.

No lag or freezes

Even though it might sound like the most straightforward request, making a game without launch bugs appears to be a problem for most game developers. People just want a good launch and enjoy the game properly from the first days of the release, but not after a few bug-fixing patches.

That’s it for our look at Destiny 3! Even though there is no official information about the release of the game, Sony has paid a significant price for the company, and the release of Destiny 3 sounds like a nice way to make some profit.
