Activision finally puts an end to rumours surrounding Destiny's sequel; a new patch will be on its way on Tuesday

The long awaited sequel of the popular Bungie shooter Destiny will debut in fall 2017. A lot of rumours and speculations were floating around the web, claiming that Destiny 2 would not be out until early 2018, but Activision have finally had their say on the matter.

According to their presentation slide: "Full Destiny sequel in 2017 to broaden the franchise’s global reach, which along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth." This, of course, confirms that Destiny 2 will indeed be released in 2017, and although very little is known about the upcoming sequel at the moment, some rumours suggest that Bungie might completely reset character's progress and even bring the game to PC.

Arguably the biggest flaw of Destiny was its disappointing storyline - or the lack thereof - but recent expansions, such as The Taken King and Rise of Iron, have tried to compensate for this. However, most players still don't feel that they're getting their money's worth, as the game feels somewhat uneven and imbalanced. To attempt rectifying this issue - Bungie is issuing a new patch on Tuesday, which will deal primarily with weapon balancing. Full patch notes will not be available until Tuesday, but this hasn't prevented hardcore Destiny fans from trying to break down the announced changes on Reddit.

No changes will be made to Artifacts though, as Bungie put it on their post: "Weapons and abilities were the focus of this work. The post-show dialogue has observed the absence of changes to Artifacts – namely Skorri’s. You haven’t heard the last from the Live Team, and the Sandbox is always an important part of their exploration of where the game should go next. With 2.5.0.2 almost off the workbench, our design team is looking at another future release as a potential vehicle for some tuning on artifacts as well."
