Considering that Gamestop has reported that Destiny has about 9.5 million registered users, and that users of the game often play the game an average of more than three hours per day, I suppose the only thing left to do is to franchise this.  This means that Destiny 2 is on the way, but there is no idea of a release date.  All we can give is a Destiny update, with some tips and news for the PS4 and Xbox versions.

Considering that Gamestop has reported that Destiny has about 9.5 million registered users, and that users of the game often play the game an average of more than three hours per day, I suppose the only thing left to do is to franchise this.  This means that Destiny 2 is on the way, but there is no idea of a release date.  All we can give is a Destiny update, with some tips and news for the PS4 and Xbox versions.

Gamespot also reported in November of last year that Activation Publishing has a 10-year vision for the Destiny franchise.  This means that a Destiny 2, or whatever they will call it, is most certainly on its way.  An Activation representative didn't have anything to respond at that time, but the Latino Post states that this is underway.  Not only will this sequel offer some new an exotic weapons, but progress of your character from the original Destiny will carry over into the sequel

If you are looking for Destiny 2 now, you might have to wait a while as its estimated release date is for 2016.  Until then, there are recent updates that players can get in on now. 

A recent update brought a new element to the game called Crota's End, and it will soon be getting a hard mode, which will also bring to Destiny's Xbox and Playstation players the chance for some new loot including weapons, ship upgrades, and more.

A few months ago, we reported that there was an update that prepared for The Dark Below Expansion, and part of that expansion was a raid known as Crota's End.  A report from the Bungie Weekly has stated that a Hard Mode for Crota's End is ready.  They also report that "the first Fireteam to sink their teeth (and their sword) into the final boss (and by opposing, end him) will set the pace".

According to VG 24/7, the Crota's End hard mode launched on January 21st, to raise the difficulty level to 33.  The new level of difficulty is important because, as the Inquisitr reports, Playstation and Xbox owners have found all kinds of shortcuts, glitches, and strategies to bring the Crota down in record time. 

With the upgrade to hard mode will comes some new loot (like from the infamous and recently closed loot cave) when Crota is beaten which include weapons, ship upgrades, a special shader, and something very special that I will explain later.  The four new weapons upgrades have the potential to reach a Maximum Attack of 331, and include names like the "Abyss Defiant" auto rifle, the "Fang of Ir Yut" scout rifle, the "Oversoul Edit" pulse rifle, as well as the "Word of Cota" hand cannon.  The ship mode will be called the "Bane of the Dark Gods", and that is what you will see in the illustration to this article, in orbit over its port of origin.  The shader is a hard mode exclusive color palette for your gear called Glowhoo. 

As for the special item, Destiny players will be able to obtain the "Crux of Crota", the final item that is needed to upgrade to the Legendary "Eidolon Ally" auto rifle to the Exotic "Necrochasm".  I'm certain that all hard-core, diehard Destiny players know exactly what that means. 

So enjoy Destiny as much as you can, and it is available for the PS4 and Xbox One now, along with the updates.
