The Darkness won’t be addressed in Destiny 2 and Bungie has come forward to explain why.
Speaking to Game Informer, game director Luke Smith confirmed that while The Darkness was a mysterious term that was referenced quite often in the original Destiny, it won’t be mentioned in Destiny 2.
“We’ve never really said what
means,” Smith said. “Ultimately, we do owe our players a story there – what is The Darkness? – but that’s not this game. We wanted to remove as much of the extra terminology as possible and focus on telling the Destiny 2 story.”
