The upcoming online-only first-person shooter video game, "Destiny 2," is currently making some noise across the video game industry. According to reports, game developer Bungie and publisher Activision are currently planning on making the sequel of the 2014 hit a totally different game from its predecessor. However, industry experts believe that the game developer will still include some of the original game's elements for fans to see the connection between the two titles.

According to an insider who posted some details about "Destiny 2" on NeoGAF, Bungie will certainly drop most of the content from the first game; however, this will only be temporary. "They might reintroduce areas in a more "Destiny 2" fleshed out way. So we might lose temporary access to these places, then regain it or have to fight back for control of it at a later point in the plot," user shinobi1602 said on NeoGAF. "This means we'll get to see older areas or activities through the perspective of the newer content."

The source added that fans will see several areas found during the first installment on "Destiny 2;" however, it will be packed with additional features. According to the report, the goal of the company is to develop a new game that has a few upgraded areas of the original "Destiny" title. While most players expected Bungie to pick up where it lift off, the source added that "Destiny 2" will certainly surprise many fans as it will have a different plot direction, structure and pacing.

Meanwhile, new speculations have emerged suggesting that "Destiny 2" will feature an MMO style gameplay as Bungie plans to make the game a full open-world title. The report also claims that the upcoming sequel will be released in 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

There are also reports suggesting that the game might also be available on new gaming consoles that are expected to come out next year. However, this has yet to be confirmed by the people behind the franchise. Stay tuned for more news and updates about the upcoming development and release of "Destiny 2."
