'Destiny 2' release date: Bungie to reboot sequel? new DLC leaked through poster?

0

It seems that the upcoming “Destiny 2,” the sequel to the award-winning shooter game developed by Bungie, has been “rebooted” following an alleged shakeup in the workforce of the company. Additionally, it seems that the game will be receiving yet another expansion pack before the sequel comes, as a leaked poster hints of the new content and possibly its title.

According to a report by Kotaku, the production of “Destiny 2” has recently been “rebooted.” This is reportedly due to the staff reorganization within Bungie, which put “The Taken King” director Luke Smith as the man in charge of the game.

However, there has been no further information as to how this alleged reshuffle will affect the progress of the game sequel’s release plans since Bungie previously announced that they will be releasing “Destiny 2” sometime in 2017.

Along with this alleged “reboot” came a leak that shows an alleged first look at the upcoming DLC pack for “Destiny.” In a post on the “Destiny: The Taken King” subreddit on Reddit, a poster for what was called “Destiny: Rise of Iron” was leaked.

The alleged new DLC pack is expected to be released in September with Bungie reportedly preparing a reveal during their presentation in the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo 2016.

The leaked poster showed Iron Banner hero Lord Saladin wielding what looked to be a hammer or a powered axe as he stands with a pack of wolves. While the character in the poster and the title of the alleged DLC hint greatly of the regular PVP event called the Iron Banner, its relationship and connection to the rumored new content were not talked about.

So far, “Destiny” has three expansion packs: “The Dark Below,” “House of Wolves,” and the most recent one, “The Taken King.”
