Just like with Take-Two before it, the quarterly earnings calls are the best source of information this time of year. And Activision's performance briefing makes good mention of Destiny 2.
The full-sized, proper sequel to the original Destiny has been teased basically every year since the original first released. But with each year bringing word of a new delay, it sounds as if the last - was the last. It should arrive later this year.
Hoping to "broaden the franchise's global reach" Destiny 2 should land around the Holiday period. So between November-December in place of the usual paid expansion for of the base game. And though the company still hasn't specifically answered long-running rumors of the franchise landing on PC this time around (what better way to broaden that reach?), the earnings call did bring attention to how Activision want to see the title live a long and happy life in Russia and China - where PC gaming is by far the main platform. And, for China at least, the only real viable option.
Likely looking to fix the mistakes of the first, the report makes special mention of how they hope to avoid the massive gaps between relevant content by likely mixing semi-frequent events with side-stories mixed in. Focusing on the telling of a "great cinematic story", PC goers might not have the original narrative of Destiny - but it's seems like we'll at least be getting the over-all better attempt.
For those of you who've picked up Destiny on a console before, what kind of options and features would you expect in a PC version of a sequel that carries so much weight behind it?
