While the studio’s first foray into space was a flop, Destiny became a phenomenon, both with Bungie’s achievement-winning space FPS and third-person shooter, Destiny 2, releasing in 2006. It quickly became the norm to release games on multiple formats, with Destiny being the flagship title for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and the game that single-handedly put multiplayer gaming on the world map. All that changed with Destiny: The Collection, which was released in 2012. It brought together all of the content released for Destiny 2 along with a few additional bonuses, including expansions for major multiplayer-only games like Destiny. It’s not surprising that the new edition is a better game than its original source, but it makes some fans wish Bungie would revisit the original by hand. The way that Destiny has risen from mere ‘game of the year’ to ‘greatest launch in gaming history’ is impressive, and it appears to have only continued to get better in the years since. Bungie has made several major updates to the game over the years, including the free exchange-based Curse of Osiris and the addition of the hard-mode Raid, which introduced some seriously hardcore challenges and gave rise to one of the franchise’s most enduring fan fests, The Taken King. It’s impossible not to compare the original Destiny to the current-gen versions of the game and to think of how the first game compares to the likes of Titanfall, Battlefield, and Phil Spencer’s tenure as the Activision CEO. It’s no wonder fans of the series are already calling it a game that can only be better in the sequels that followed. And with Rise of Iron beginning to make its way back to the drawing board, it’s reasonable to expect some sort of Destiny 2 / Destiny Infinite crossover in the near future. So far, we’ve had a glimpse of the next game from Bungie via the trailer for Destiny: The Taken King, which we’ve linked below. It’s not clear whether this game is a direct port of the original game or a new one, but it’s unlikely we’ll see it for another year as we wait for more details about the game. Destiny: The Collection would appear to be the best way for fans to relive the original game while also allowing them to enjoy the ‘future of the franchise’. It’s a potentially enormous undertaking, but there are plenty of fans that would love to see a full-blown sequel. Fans of the original Destiny will be pleased to know that the first game is being brought up to date with the PS4 and Xbox One, with the original art, textures, and animations all being present in pristine high-definition. It’s also notable that the original Destiny doesn’t appear to be included in the standard edition of the The Collection. We’ll keep an eye out for more details on The Collection, especially if it turns out to be a full port of the full game. Destiny 2 is an excellent shooter that paved the way for the dramatic and long-awaited action adventure of Destiny. While it may seem odd that the original Destiny doesn’t appear in The Collection, it’s telling that Bungie describes the game as an ongoing project, promising that there will be new content released in the coming months. While it’s unlikely we’ll see a full-blown follow-up to the original Destiny, it’s still an interesting move for Destiny fans who want to see a full-scale sequel in the years to come. Destiny 2: The Collection would be a great way for fans to relive the original game while also allowing them to enjoy the ‘better version’ of the game. It would also be a great way for new players to get introduced to the franchise without starting over from scratch. While The Collection would appear to be the best way for fans to relive the original Destiny, it would also be a great way for new players to get introduced to the franchise without starting over. And we’ll have to wait and see. Seen something newsworthy?
