Update, March 27: The official Destiny account has tweeted out a logo (opens in new tab) , as seen above, which nearly matches the logo in the leaked posters. (The spacing of the letters in 'Destiny' is somewhat different.) The exact release date remains unconfirmed, as does the existence of a PC version, though it seems likely. Original story follows.


Kotaku (opens in new tab), by way of an Italian retailer, has obtained leaked photos of a Destiny 2 poster which indicates a September 8th release date, at least for Europe, as well as a pre-release beta test.

The report comes from Jason Schreier, who says that the official announcement will be made soon, and who has previously reported (opens in new tab) that Bungie's MMO shooter is coming to PC this time. That report came following an identical PC rumor posted to NeoGAF (opens in new tab)

Both leaks align with what we heard (opens in new tab) in Activision's quarterly results conference call in February, during which the company stated that Destiny 2 would be out this year and "broaden the franchise's global reach" despite cutting out last-gen consoles—another hint at a PC version.

Without confirming anything, Bungie's Luke Smith hinted on Twitter (opens in new tab) that the poster is legitimate. So, trailer soon, then?
