Destiny 2 will not include gear and progress from Destiny.

Bungie, Developer of Destiny have confirmed via a blog post one of the most sought after questions regarding Destiny 2.

Players frequently asked the developer how their armour and progress would transfer over to the sequel. And the developer confirmed yesterday that any progress and gear earned on Destiny 1 would not transfer over to Destiny 2.

Destiny 1 character

“Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.”

Bungie did however confirmed that character personalisation would carry over if certain requirements had been met.

Therefore your class, gender, race, face, hair and tattoo markings, will transfer over if you’ve reached level 20 and have completed the Black Garden story mission.

“We believe this is the best path forward. It allows us to introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel, ensuring it will be the best game we can create”

Traveller from Destiny

“We’re looking forward to sharing more details with you later this year for how we will honour your legacy in the future.”Bungie added.

Destiny 2 is to be released in 2017 as confirmed by the Activision earning reports, however a definitive release date has not been confirmed.

We can most likely expect a release date at this years E3 conference in June.
