Destiny 2 gets official reveal

We've known for awhile that a sequel to Activision's online shooter Destiny is on the way, and now we have a title: Destiny 2. The news was revealed via the official Destiny Twitter account in the first of what will likely be many teaser images over the coming months.

Perhaps the most exciting thing to come out of this teaser image is that it jives with some retail posters that leaked late last week. The same logo style that appears in this official teaser also appeared on the posters, lending some credence to their legitimacy and, by extension, their claim of a September 8 release date. For their part, Activision and Bungie have yet to confirm a release date, but some point in September would square with previous major releases for the first game.

Outside of knowledge that the sequel will launch this year, and now its name, there isn't yet much known about Destiny 2. It's highly likely we'll hear much more by the time E3 rolls around, however. For now, you can hop back into Destiny to get ready for the game's final event, which is set to kick off tomorrow, March 28, and will see some older raids make a return.
