Destiny 2 appeared in 2017 after the start of the original game in 2014, which means that Cowen & Company analysts plan to launch Destiny 3 for 2020. The projection was further strengthened by yesterday's news of the split between Activision and Bungie.
After Bungie obtained the protection rights to divorce Destiny they have full rights to release and support Destiny 3 however they like it
From Gamespot :
According to Cowen, Bungie's attempts to expand the Destiny player community with a more-casual friend, Destiny 2 did not work out, and while Destiny 2: Forsaken was lauded by critics and fans, it was not good enough for old players return.
Cowen estimates that Activision has broken ties with Bungie and Activision to focus on strengthening its own franchise as Call of Duty, even if this meant taking a short-term financial hit. The benefit of investing in their own franchises was more than wasting resources in a below-average series like Destiny, Cowen said.
Also in the report, Cowen said that Bungie Activision probably paid a fee to reclaim the Destiny publishing rights. But the number is probably not "tremendously significant," she said.
Losing Destiny will hurt Activision Blizzard's bottom line, Cowen said, estimating that the company will announce lower financial forecasts as it reports its next earnings in February.
Ultimately, we believe this decision is probably the best for Destiny as a franchise, as we believe that two chefs in the kitchen, with slightly different views, have caused some developmental issues and led the game into dead ends. " said Cowen. "Destiny was a worthwhile attempt by Activision to build another cornerstone franchise that, in our view, was not quite what they wanted it to be (what a challenge to build and run a successful live service gaming business , again underlines). "
Well, the incident between Bungie and Activision is hardly surprising, but it means that fans of the original Destiny could get a Destiny 3 that they like a lot better than themselves Destiny 2: Forsaken . However, this is not the biggest challenge Bungie has to sustain a writing team.
However, given the standard development cycle of the games, it seems plausible if the deadline for 2020 is set to Destiny 3
