Destiny 2 could be primed for release earlier than anticipated. According to a poster allegedly spotted at a branch of GameStop in Italy, the sequel to 2014’s shared world sci-fi shooter is out on September 8 of this year. According to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier who has a solid track record with information regarding the game, developer Bungie may officially Destiny 2 later today.

The poster, which found its way to Lega Network as well as  Imgur also has PlayStation branding, indicating that much like the first game, Destiny 2 will see an exclusive marketing campaign with the PS4 with a beta pre-release as well.

Prior to this, Activision Blizzard confirmed that Destiny 2 would be available in 2017 during its latest earnings call.

“Full Destiny sequel in 2017 to broaden the franchise’s global reach, which along with follow-on content plans, sets the stage for growth,” reads the company’s earnings report.

This could imply that we might see a more accessible entry in what Activision Blizzard deems as a new franchise. How this impacts the gameplay and progression systems as well as the delivery of its narrative, will be of interest.

Earlier, a leak suggested the sequel to the shared world sci-fi shooter would be called Destiny II: Forge of Hope and will be launched on five platforms: PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox Scorpio, and PC.
