Today Bungie revealed some important news about the next game in the Destiny franchise, confirming that you won’t be able to carry over any weapons or game from the first game to Destiny 2.
Thankfully your character’s appearance will carry over, however, we aren’t sure how much Destiny players are bothered about that considering the lacking customisation options that are available.
Bungie explained more with the following from their blog post:
Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.
We know that, just like us, you have grown fond of the Guardians you’ve created, so we do plan to preserve your character personalization. We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments.
We believe this is the best path forward. It allows us to introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel, ensuring it will be the best game we can create, unencumbered by the past. We’re looking forward to sharing more details with you later this year for how we will honor your legacy in the future.
This may or may not annoy you, but personally, I feel that the news is quite right as a fresh start is definitely needed for the game.
But before all of this happens, Bungie will be bringing a new spring update to the game that they have called Age of Triumph, which they have said that they will be bringing some new information about it on March 8th, at which point we will update you.
