When the "#Destiny" sequel launches later this year, there are a couple of things that are going to be brought forward from the original "Destiny" to this sequel. A new report makes it appears as though the characters that are created in the original will carry forward. That's the good news. The bad news is that it doesn't appear that much else from the first "Destiny" is going to be moving to the sequel.

Much anticipated sequel

While March marks the beginning of games that are some of the most popular in the year, "Destiny 2" could end up being one of the most anticipated of the last couple of years. The first game was plenty popular but fell short in a number of areas.

Those who played "Destiny" are going to be very interested to see if the second game can do some of the things that the first couldn't pull off.

While most people expected that the character from the first would be able to land in the second, it looks like players will be starting over nearly from scratch. “Power, possessions and Eververse-related items and currency” will not carry forward from "Destiny" to "Destiny 2," the developers explained in a post on its website (Bungie).

Everything old is new again

It appears for the most part that players are going to have to start over from scratch. While that makes sense in the grand scheme of things, it means time and effort put into the original "Destiny" are going to be all for naught in "Destiny 2."

The company also said that there will be a way to carry forward some of the characters' personalization, though only if players have managed to pass level 20 and finish the "black garden" mission.

It's not clear just why the mission was selected as the cutoff point though the level makes sense. If players advanced to that level on their own, it's clear they wanted to put in the time. If they jumped past that level by buying the expansions, they put in the money. The original "Destiny" is going to have one more live event and then the "Destiny" sequel will likely launch during the holiday season later this year.
