Destiny sequel now due in 2017, a large expansion is due this year.

destiny_warlock_21Bungie has announced that the rumoured delay of the Destiny sequel is correct and it will now not be released until sometime in 2017.

A ‘large new expansion’ is still due to come out this year.

“That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability,”

Bungie told it’s fans in it’s weekly update.

Will this be enough to keep Destiny fans happy? I know my interest is weining as we get lacklustre updates and poorly thought out events such as the one running right now for valentine’s day.

New games appearing on Xbox One backwards compatibility

Last weekend titles such as Red Dead Redemption and Left 4 Dead 2 were made downloadable and for a short time playable through the backwards compatibility feature on Xbox One, this was by mistake. While this error has been corrected and the titles made unplayable we have had four new games become backwards compatible this week.

Trials HD, Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, and Lego Batman have all become backwards compatible.

Now let’s hope that the second most requested title (Red Dead Redemption) really does enter backwards compatibility as I for one would welcome another chance to to play that awesome game and it’s horror themed DLC.
