Bungie confirmed over the weekend that your character progress in Destiny will not carry over to Destiny 2. As Eurogamer reports, only race, class, and appearance will find their way over to the loot-driven shooter’s sequel. That means no weapons, armour, or Eververse items – the in-game microtransactions – will make their way over.
From an official blog post:
Sequels represent the start of a new adventure for every player, with new worlds to explore, new stories to tell, new powers to acquire, new loot to earn, and much more. This led us to a decision that would enable us to serve both the game and the player’s best interests: Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward. They will, however, remain accessible to you in Destiny 1.
We believe this is the best path forward. It allows us to introduce the major advancements and improvements that all of us expect from a sequel, ensuring it will be the best game we can create, unencumbered by the past. We’re looking forward to sharing more details with you later this year for how we will honor your legacy in the future.
Destiny will feature one final live event named the “Age of Triumph,” set to debut in March. More information will be made available later this week.
