A new update on Fate 3 has revealed that it will not be out soon. In fact, when it’s released, it may not even be a PS5 and Xbox Series X game, but a launch game for PS6 and what the next Xbox will end up being called. According to Bungie, there are currently no plans to release Fate 3 in 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 or 2025, which means that the earliest release – could – is sometime in 2026. Then the PS5 and Xbox Series X will be six years old, and the PS6 and the next Xbox will probably not be very far away .
Rather than dropping Fate 3, Bungie is going to double on support from Fate 2 with new stories and expansions, including a new “Lightfall” pursuer. Unfortunately, but as you̵
As you would expect, players are divided over this news, and it’s mainly because players are divided over the current state of Fate 2 itself. Some people are happy with the condition of the game and the frequency of updates, and are therefore happy to hear that it will be supported for – at least – four more years. Those on the other side of this divide will not be so happy to hear that the next installment is so far out.
Between games like Fortnite, Rocket League, Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, War zoneand other juggernauts in this room who have chosen to support the base they have instead of chasing more with a sequel, it is not very surprising Fate 3 will not be coming anytime soon. However, the persistent web site is very competitive, and it remains to be seen Fate 2 can survive in it for so long.
