Following the next chapter of Destiny 2 reveal earlier today, Bungie outlined more details on the future of the game via a blog post on its website, also highlighting why it doesn't want to make a Destiny 3.
The company noted that it's "investing in Destiny 2 for years to come", with multiple expansions in the pipeline through 2022 already. And as for why it didn't just create Destiny 3 instead, Bungie explained that it didn't feel a sequel was the right direction for the game:
"With Destiny 1, we solved the “ever expanding, exponential complexity” problem by making a sequel in Destiny 2. We left behind all of Destiny 1’s content and many of the features players grew to love. We believe now that it was a mistake to create a situation that fractured the community, reset player progress, and set the player experience back in ways that took us a full year to recover from and repair. It’s a mistake we don’t want to repeat by making a Destiny 3."
Despite this, the company admitted that the scope and complexity of Destiny 2 has "ballooned to unprecedented scale" after three years of growth. Therefore, it will ultimately be cycling some destination and activity content out of the game and into the "Destiny Content Vault" to make way for new content.
If you want to see an early preview of plans for the Destiny Content Vault (including the eventual return of Destiny 1’s first raid, Vault of Glass), you'll find it over at the official Bungie website.
