There are reports suggesting that Activision-owned Vicarious Visions studio is also going to help with the development of the new game. There are speculations that the production has already started; however, these rumors must be taken with a grain of salt until the company decides to make an official announcement.

Apparently, the game developer will pattern the next installment to "Diablo 2," where the game was almost completely different from the original title.

Meanwhile, reports are also circulating that "Destiny 2" might come out as a full open world and MMO game as Bungie is said to fulfill the request of the players. However, this has yet to be confirmed and until the company makes it official, fans must take it with a pinch of salt.
