For those devoted "Destiny" fans who are worried their fun and frolics are going to end in the game when "Destiny 2" launches this fall, you can now be rest assured. Among the massive amount of information coming out since the official reveal, #Bungie has said they don't plan to end support for the "Destiny 1" anytime soon.

That doesn't mean we're going to be seeing a ton of, or really any updates to the first game in this series but the online servers and ability to play existing content will still be there. The firm addressed the worries of the title's fans on the game's official website.

'Destiny' has a place in gamers' libraries

#Community Manager David “DeeJ” Dague recently spoke with GamesRadar and made it clear Bungie doesn't want to leave those who enjoy playing the game in the dust when "Destiny 2" launches.

"If players decide, as they move on to new worlds, to experience new adventures and be told new stories in those spaces, if they decide they want to revisit the things that they did in 'Destiny 1', the game will still be there for them." Dague said.

The community manager made it clear Bungie also believes the original might still be a game that people who are playing the sequel want to take a peek at. The developers are certainly open to gaining a player base for the first title based on love for the second.

The ultimate reality

While Bungie is saying all the right things directly after the announcement of the new title, there are some simple realities gamers have to keep in mind. No game is going to have developer support forever. With the arrival of "Destiny 2", and the fact that it is adding a platform in the PC, it will be more important for Bungie to spend resources on the new game than usual.

Loss of eventual support is inevitable and considering the entirety of "Destiny 1" is online, once that support goes away, there will be no functionality left. This isn't like a game where the multiplayer goes away and the single player format is still playable. Sooner or later, "Destiny 1" will be a broken husk but the good news is, it won't be transitioning in the foreseeable future.
