Bungie No Longer Planning Updates for Destiny as Destiny 2 Gears Up for Launch

The Age of Triumph ends Destiny's era.

The Age of Triumph will close out Destiny as Bungie confirmed again today that Age of Triumph is the final update to the game for the forseeable future. In a blog post published today, Bungie reaffirmed the studio's full pivot to Destiny 2.

Destiny: Rise of Iron PS4 Review: Short on Story

"All hands at Bungie are committed to making Destiny 2 the sequel that this community deserves," Bungie outlined in a community blog post. "Ever since the Age of Triumph began, we hosted the enlightening conversation about how Destiny might evolve next... Age of Triumph was touted as the last update to Destiny. In our constant watch over the community we've heard many of you asking if the current sandbox will get another design pass. Our sole focus at this time is Destiny 2."

Destiny 2 was revealed last month in Los Angeles, and for all intents in purposes, will be the de facto Destiny game once it releases. The move is made all the more apparent by Bungie's decision to not have items and gear carry over from Destiny to Destiny 2.

"This fall will begin an entirely new cycle of updates for a brand new game that we think will be the best answer to the feedback you've given us since the original launch of Destiny," continues the blog post.

Destiny 2 is set to overhaul the Destiny franchise, not by rebooting the series, but rather by expanding upon several elements in the first game. This includes how the story works, how the overworld functions, and several other gameplay tweaks that incorporates many of what people have been asking for since the first Destiny.

As Redditors respond to this news by talking about the other games they plan on picking up while waiting for Destiny 2, I'm curious to see how plaers ring out the Age of Triumph as the dawn of Destiny 2 approaches.

Destiny 2 comes out September 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Please check out our complete Destiny 2 guide for all the latest information.
