It looks like Destiny developer Bungie is gearing up for the next big installment of the Destiny franchise after The Final Shape expansion, which is set to release in early 2024.
Bungie recently sent out a closed survey to a select group of Destiny 2 players. The survey looked at various aspects of the current gaming landscape, which includes mobile, PC, and console games.

However, what caught players’ attention was a specific question about their interest in playing a new game within the Destiny universe and the franchise. Frequently asked questions about the new Destiny game are listed below. (Thanks, Ecothedragon37)
- What is the probability that you will play a new game from the following franchises (Destiny)?
- Again, think of a new Destiny game, which of the following do you prefer?
This wasn’t the only question asked about a new game in a popular video game franchise. The survey also asked the same questions about Sheikh’s manuscripts franchise (The Elder Scrolls Online/Skyrim), and whether the player would like to play a new game in the franchise.
The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) from Bethesda Softworks.
A new Destiny game in the works?
While the developer has remained tight-lipped about any official announcements regarding a new Destiny game, the inclusion of players asking specifically about their desire to embark on another adventure within the world of Destiny certainly piqued their curiosity.
In August 2021, Bungie announced that the original Destiny’s Light and Darkness saga will end with the release of The Final Shape.

Bungie has stated on several occasions that the end of the Destiny Light and Darkness saga with The Final Shape expansion does not mean the end of the Destiny franchise and that the developer looks forward to supporting the franchise for decades to come. So, it’s fair to say that Bungie is already working on new Destiny games and other projects along with some new IPs.
When will the new Destiny game be released?
Based on this information, it is speculated and quite logical that anything related to this new Destiny game will be released after The Final Shape expansion, which will be in 2025.
Will it be a direct sequel to Destiny 2, a spin-off, or an entirely new entry in the franchise, Destiny 3? These are some of the questions fans have been asking online, along with the possibility of a new game engine, which seems highly unlikely, based on what we’ve heard from the developers in the past.
The original Destiny movie was released in September 2014, about nine years ago. Since then, Bungie has released a total of eleven expansions; Four expansions in the first Destiny game, and seven in Destiny 2.

Since 2021, Bungie has been hosting its own Destiny 2 show in August, featuring major announcements about the franchise. If Bungie continues with tradition, we’ll likely get an announcement for this year’s Destiny 2 or Bungie Showcase as we head into August.
