Destiny 2 is in a very good place right now.
The game, which originally launched back in 2017, has been through the ringer a little bit: it lost original publisher Activsion earlier this year, it's had a lot of backlash as it made odd choices around currency, and it wasn't praised as highly at launch as the original.
Still, developer Bungie remains undeterred and is pressing on as we head into Destiny 2, Year 3 very soon.
The next content drop for the game comes in the form of Shadowkeep – the first time Bungie will be looking after its own game entirely fresh in a new expansion since the Activision 'divorce'.
As the developer started to talk about Year 3, and we see the game head into The Season Of the Undying (with the Vex invading the moon), we learned that Destiny 2 is now operating on a 'five year plan'.
We may have heard reports about a theoretical Destiny 3 release in the past, but we can now safely assume those plans have been shelved as Bungie continues to iterate on Destiny 2.
Game director Luke Smith noted that work is ongoing when it comes to Destiny 2, and we can, as such, assume the sequel to the game is very far away.
"Hey, we're back" he says in the latest vidoc (below). "This is the five year vision for the game."
Consider also that the game is one of Google's darlings on the upcoming Stadia platform – Google likely wouldn't be getting behind the title as much if they knew Bungie was going to move its focus onto a new title in a matter of months, right?
The most recent vidoc for the game demonstrates how much content is coming in the coming months and years for Destiny 2.
Once Shadowkeep is out the door, Destiny 2 will see a slew of new content from new raids to nightmare hunts, exotic quests to a wholly reimaging armour setup.
Community head Eric Osborne noted that there is "so much more no matter what player you are," in Destiny 2, and even more is coming over the next few months.
So don't mourn the loss/delay of Destiny 3 too much – Destiny 2 is doing all the right things in the mean time.
