Two different images of retail Destiny 2 poster give the game a Sept. 8 release date.
While we know that Destiny’s sequel is coming this year, most recently confirmed by an Activision quarterly earnings call, this poster is the closest we know to a timeline beyond the initially stated fall 2017 release window. While the Italian/European date could be different from the worldwide launch, it seems less likely for a game with a global server structure.
Destiny was released worldwide on Sept. 9, 2014; Destiny: The Taken King was released worldwide on Sept. 15, 2015; and Destiny: Rise of Iron was released worldwide on Sept. 20, 2016.
As one Twitter user pointed out, PlayStation 4 users could be getting the beta early, based on the corner of this poster. In 2014, the original Destiny beta reached PS4 players a week early.

What we do know, from the same earnings call’s Q&A, is Destiny’s sequel will have a “great cast of memorable, relatable characters” as well as a “cinematic storyline.” It will also be more accessible for “someone who wants a great, more casual first-person experience” and will be going into more international markets than ever before.
