Destiny 2 will be three years old next September and with the original Destiny taking three years to get a successor, it's only natural that Bungie are being asked whether there's anything to announce. Unfortunately, that will have to wait a bit longer.

Speaking to PCGamesN, Bungie's communication director David Dague said the studio has no announcement in regards of the Destiny franchise additions. 

"Right now our commitment and our attention is to make the seasons that will unfold over the course of the next year interesting and sustain a perennial story arc that will keep players engaged", he said. 

There's no doubt that Bungie and Destiny 2 have been going from strength to strength since their split with Activision, even though the studio insists that Bungie: Activision weren't the 'prohibitive Destiny 2 overlord' everyone thinks they were. 

Announcing Destiny 3 mid-revival would indeed be a questionable move by any metric, and arguably the repeat of what happened with the 2. You may recall that many promises ended up being broken, but if there's a silver lining here, it's that Bungie are probably well aware and wary of repeating their earlier mistakes. 

Asked when can we expect an announcement on Destiny 2's successor, Dague gave us a glimmer of hope by saying, "I understand the question you’re asking and it's certainly an interesting one, and we'll have a lot of cool stuff to say on that later, but I'm afraid that moment will have to wait a little bit longer."

There's a lot to be said on the differences between live service and offline games, and the refresh cycle is one of the main ones. A game that is constantly updated with new events obviously doesn't need refreshing every three years, but we'll have to wait and see just how long Bungie's "a bit longer" is.
