While there is no official word from Bungie so far, it is now speculated that Bungie will delay the release of the upcoming ad highly anticipated sequel to its hit shooter “Destiny,” “Destiny 2.”

According to a recent report, Bungie’s upcoming sequel game “Destiny 2” has been “rebooted.” Though specific details regarding this alleged reboot were not given, it is expected that a “reboot” means that the development of the sequel is back to square one.

While Bungie still has “Destiny 2” set for release in 2017, it is now expected that the game will be delated for a few months.

As for the cause of the delay, sources close to the matter revealed that Bungie recently reshuffled its staff, and the development team working on “Destiny 2” was one of the teams that was hit the most.

Following the reshuffling, “The Taken King” DLC director Luke Smith was appointed as the new director of the upcoming game.

However, it seems that Bungie will make up for this “reboot,” as a leak pointed out a possible new DLC for “Destiny.” Based on a leaked poster, it was revealed that an alleged new DLC, called “Rise of Iron,” is coming to the game around September with a reveal tipped during E3 2016. The poster featured the Iron Banner hero Lord Saladin wielding a powered weapon as he stands among a pack of wolves.

Should the rumor prove to be true, “Rise of Iron” will be the third expansion pack for the game following “The Taken King.”
