Developer Vicarious Visions — the team currently doing Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy — has announced that it has joined up with Bungie to work on new Destiny content.
The developer said the following in an official statement on Facebook (that has since been taken down):
“Vicarious Visions is excited to announce that we are partnering with Bungie to further expand the award-winning Destiny universe.”
The official announcement comes on the back of a report earlier this year that both Vicarious Visions and High Moon were working with Bungie on Destiny 2, which is supposedly slated to release next year. More specifically, it has been suggested Vicarious Visions has been brought in to work on the rumored PC version of the game.
During one of Activision Blizzard’s financial conference call earlier this year, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg talked more about the upcoming Destiny sequel, mentioning that development is on track.
“We’re on track and excited about what we think is going to be an awesome sequel for Destiny on 2017. No announcements today on timing just yet, but what I will say is that the sequel is designed to excite both our highly engaged current players, but also to broaden the appeal even further, bringing in new fans and bringing back old fans as well. That’s our primary focus right now.”
All of this being said, while not confirmed, Vicarious Visions has is quite clearly aiding Bungie with Destiny 2. But in what manner, remains to be seen.
