Bungie just broke the hearts of Destiny players the world over. Ever since the announcement of the sequel fans of the game had wondered if the hours they spend on grinding raids in the original game would pay off in the next installment. Short answer? No.
"Destiny 1 power, possessions, and Eververse-related items and currency will not carry forward" says Bungie. That means those emotes you bought to better bond with your raiding clan? Not coming with you. Bungie has decided to carry over some of the more cosmetic traits of your characters though.
"We are going to recognize the dedication and passion you’ve shown for this world. Specifically, the class, race, gender, face, hair, and marking selections for all characters that have achieved Level 20 and completed the Black Garden story mission will carry forward. We also plan to award those veteran accounts with honors that reflect your Destiny 1 accomplishments."
Right now Destiny fans on Reddit are wondering if there'll be a barber available in Destiny 2 because they actually hate the hair they chose for the character way back in 2014.
Bungie tried to soften the blow with a tease on the final live event for Destiny 1, 'Age of Triumph'. It'll be releasing more details about that on March 8.
