Destiny 3 Could Still Be Coming In 2020 Despite Split With Activision
However one has to wonder that with this split, could it potentially have thrown a monkey wrench into the company’s plans for Destiny 3? Apparently not, at least according to research firm Cowen & Company who claims that Destiny 3 is still on track for a release in 2020. Given that Destiny games are released every three years, it seems like it is a pretty safe prediction to make.
The report also claims that the deal with Activision saw the publisher request a game every two years, but it was later changed to every three years which might have led to a “growing divergence” between the companies, which could possibly explain the split. We had heard back in 2018 that Destiny 3 was already in the works, so a launch in 2020 doesn’t seem entirely impossible or out of the question.
It is unclear as to what this split could mean for Destiny 3 as well, due to the fact that with Destiny 2, Activision had wanted to introduce more microtransactions to bolster the game’s revenue after it had failed to meet sales targets. With Destiny 3 now being self-published, maybe we could be seeing a return of a game with less in-game purchases, or at least that’s the hope.
