Player Transfer For Destiny 2 Says Bungie

Bungie has confirmed saying that yes, your progress will 100% carry over to the sequel.

In an interview with IGN Bungie’s David “DeeJ” Dague spoke about the developer’s plans for a Destiny sequel.

He was unable to confirm the sequel’s current development status or release window, but explained that the studio was making plans for the future.

“It’s been no secret that we have a ten-year plan for the expansion and evolution of this franchise, and it’s something that we’re always dreaming about,”

“I’ve seen new concept art, I’ve seen new exotic weapons up on people’s screens…it’s a lot of fun to walk around the studio, because there’s always somebody thinking about the next place you’ll go, the next enemy you’ll fight, the next thing that you’ll earn for doing those things.”

Deej also explained the progression for players current guardians and player transfer, the studio intends to allow it and recognizes the attachment players form with their guardians.

“The idea is that the Guardian you have created is something you can bring along with you on that adventure. If you take a look at the way people have played other games for a long period of time, they’ve had a relationship with the same character for a very long time.”

He added his personal interest in bringing over the character he’s been playing, saying “I’ve gotten attached to that little guy.”

      Lol really? Did you miss the part where he said IGN?

      • Nathan Anderson says:

        Source would include the date of the interview and a link to the original. This shit is clickbait.

        • TD380 says:

          I mean in 2 seconds I found several links with the exact information that Deej said they would carry over. Google is your friend.

          • lefoy says:

            did you also find that this article was posted on gunnars.com 2 years ago? http://www.gunnars.com/12071402/

          • TD380 says:

            Yeah but I read this info as they are confirming that info from those interviews

          • lefoy says:

            it’s literally the same article… this article is nothing new and is 100% clickbait

          • Kevin Jones says:

            Must be a slow day being that they had to pull up an old article for this information. It wasn’t long ago that all the gaming news sites posted that Destiny 2 would be a completely new feel suggesting that characters wouldn’t transfer over. There was a huge change in staff which changed a lot of things. If I’m not mistaking there was also a comment from the new head saying something to the sort about characters not transferring over. Either way, here’s an article from one of those sites. http://kotaku.com/sources-destiny-2-coming-to-pc-aims-to-feel-like-a-to-1787153460

          • Nikk says:

            It’s a two year old interview, old info which may very well have changes. This article acts like this is new information: it is clickbait

          • TD380 says:

            It may very well be. We’ll see. It’d be a fairly poor move by bungie to not allow transfer of some sort. Most of us have invested years into this game. Not exactly the best way to show your appreciation to your fan base’s loyalty by saying “Oh you know how you guys stuck with this game over 3 years? Thanks for the money and loyalty and all but… Screw you start over.” I honestly would even take importing the character model and have NPCs recognize your guardian for past deeds. Shouldn’t be that hard to do. Diablo has been doing it for years.

          • Nikk says:

            Altough transferring all progress would be awesome, it would most likely keep a lot of potential new players from buying it, and the player base is already not huge, so I think transfer of mainly the player look, and maybe a cosmetic item to show we played Destiny 1, should be the way to go.

          • Brr-icy says:

            the player base is still pretty damn big, if you can get an lfg group together in seconds any time of the day, it’s not a small player base

          • Nikk says:

            Relative to the scale of the game, and its former size, no, it’s not huge, and assuming Bungie learns from its mistakes which I trust will happen, it has a huge potential to outdo itself and attract a bigger player base, and anything that will contribute to that, I’ll take it, even if it means resetting progress which I don’t even find so bad

          • Roshun Eppenger says:

            Probably like Mass Effect 2. It carried over but he got killed so you still start over….

  2. Michael Lee Miller says:

    so when does this baby drop

    • Ryan Petko says:

      Yes… it’s possibly coming to PC. what’s your point? The accounts are still through Bungie even on Playstation/Xbox. Wouldn’t see any problem porting your character from console to PC.

      • True Radiant Free says:

        You’re assuming way too much from that guy’s comment.

      • Kevin Jones says:

        In the article they state Bungie has yet to make a decision on the transfer of characters. Other articles have also stated that sources claim characters won’t be transferred to Destiny 2. They also state that it will feel like a new game which would lead one to assume that our characters wouldn’t transfer over b/c if they did then it wouldn’t feel like a new game; rather, it would feel like another DLC just paying full price for it.

    Thank the Light, Bungie you’be made my wish for this game come true! Now I have to get Destiny 2.
