Over the last few months, we’ve heard a lot of chatter regarding the imminent sequel to Bungie’s multiplayer FPS Destiny. Most of the talk felt like wishful thinking based on shaky leaks, but now, Bungie has taken to Twitter to officially confirm Destiny 2.

The announcement comes on the heels of a leaked Destiny 2 poster out of GameStop Italy. The poster touts a September 8th, 2017 release date and a beta test on PS4 ahead of other platforms. According to Eurogamer, this beta test is allegedly scheduled for June, so Destiny fans may be getting a taste of the new installment sooner than expected.
Although additional details are sparse, it’s more than likely we’ll be seeing Destiny 2 on display during an E3 press conference. With a June release date for the beta, it’s also plausible that the test will go live in tandem with the sequel’s E3 demonstration. Assuming everything stays on track, we’ll have a new Destiny in our hands by the end of the year.
