Will there be a Destiny 3?

This question currently divides the Destiny 2 community and has led to extensive conversation over social media. This has arisen to the forefront, especially, considering the resurfacing of a month-old potential leak that is all-of-the-sudden regaining traction.

This rumor, originally posted by Reddit user u/32638272187, stated correctly one month ago that "Bungie is working on a system called prism that will allow players to mix and match abilities from different subclasses. This is one of the things being worked on during the delay..."

The user goes on, replying to a comment further down from the original post, "No this isn't a speculation, I have actually talked to a couple former Bungie employees who told me about these. The reason I'm saying maybe is because they are former employees and therefore don't have the most up to date information anymore."

Reddit user claims code name is "Payback"

In this same post, the user also claimed to have information about a Destiny 3 that was in development with code name, "payback."

What we know so far about Destiny 3: Payback

According to the post linked above, there reportedly was at least at one time, a team working on Destiny 3: Payback. According to the rumor from Reddit user u/32638272187, this sequel would feature a total breakdown of the class system that would, "allow any character to spec into any ability since lore wise there is no reason you couldn't (Hunters explicitly learned blink from Warlocks and blink isn't tied to a single element, hence the logic there)."

With this post acting as the primary fuel for the fire of this rumor, there is not much else known about the potential sequel of Destiny 2. If more information comes to light regarding a potential release or any other facts about Destiny 3, we will update you here. So, stay tuned for more at!
