Get ready for five more years of Destiny 2

Lotta gas left in the tank

Destiny 2, a game that's soon entering its third year of content, isn't going anywhere in the immediate future. No, Bungie has a lot more in store for its mega-popular space shooter.

Leading up to the October 1 release of the Shadowkeep expansion, Destiny director Luke Smith mentions this is the start of "a five-year vision for the game." Bungie plans to iterate in a lot of ways. Changing seasons within each expansion, a revamped end-game that revolves around powering up an artifact which is described as "an infinite power grind," a renewed focus on PvP, and a free-to-play version of the game -- it's all stuff that the developer is setting its sights on now that it's the lone steward of Destiny.

The subtext here is that Destiny 3 has seemingly been shelved for the foreseeable future. Under Activision's banner, a regular cadence of sequels made sense from a giant publisher's perspective. Now independent, shaping Destiny as a living product -- even more so than before -- is the direction Bungie wants to take. It looks like Destiny 2 is gonna stick around until 2024 or so.
