Destiny 3: Payback – Release Date Rumors and Speculation

The recent reveal of Destiny 2: The Final Shape has ignited speculation about the future of Bungie’s popular franchise. With the potential conclusion of Destiny 2 on the horizon, a Reddit thread has reignited rumors of a sequel – Destiny 3.

Will Destiny 3 Have a Release Date?

The question of a Destiny 3 has divided the community, fueled by a month-old leak that seems eerily prescient. Redditor u/32638272187 correctly predicted an upcoming “prism” system allowing players to mix and match subclass abilities, lending credence to their other claim: Destiny 3 codenamed “Payback.”

This rumored sequel would reportedly dismantle the current class system, permitting Guardians to freely choose abilities from any subclass. The leaker cites lore as justification, pointing out that Hunters learned Blink from Warlocks, proving abilities aren’t inherently tied to a single class.

While intriguing, this information remains unconfirmed. The leaker admits their sources are former Bungie employees, potentially lacking the most recent information. Additionally, details about Destiny 3: Payback are scarce.

This speculation highlights the fervent passion of the Destiny community. While the future of Destiny remains unclear, one thing is certain: Guardians are eager to see what lies beyond The Final Shape. We will continue to monitor developments and update this story with any official announcements from Bungie.
