Destiny 2: Brand overview

United States

Destiny 2 is the sequel to the popular 2014 shooter, developed by American company Bungie with support from Activision, which released and distributed the game in 2019. The Destiny 2 logo combines versions for Windows, Stadia, and gaming consoles.

Johnson and Seropian’s company began developing the game after terminating their contract with Microsoft, for which they had worked on Halo: Combat Evolved, which brought in significant profits. Destiny was released in 2014, followed by the second installment in 2017. However, Bungie didn’t feel confident about promoting the game, so they signed a contract with Activision, which invested $500 million in the studio and its games. By 2019, their contract had ended. Bungie retained ownership of the second part, which is now distributed through Steam.

Meaning and History

Destiny 2 Logo History

The logo has one main version and several variations. The primary emblem is slightly different from the one presented on the game’s Twitter on March 27. Initially, players were met with a very epic scene: the dead Traveler hanging above the Earth, sacrificing himself to save humanity, and rising smoke columns from the battle for the Last City. Amidst the devastation on a hill, a huge number 2 was placed, shining with the supernatural light of the Traveler. In the center of the picture – are inscriptions.

In the constantly used version, the epic ambiance disappears, leaving only the inscriptions.

What is Destiny 2?

A multiplayer space shooter is compatible with virtually all operating systems and gaming consoles. Developed in 2017 by Bungie employees Luke Smith and Christopher Barrett. The game has six expansions, and the next, the seventh, will be released in 2023.

The large number 2 is located in the background of the emblem. It has a pale gray color and sets the background, indicating that the game presented is a sequel, the second part. Its scale hints at the many versions and expansions (Expansion I: Curse of Osiris, Warmind, Forsaken, Shadowkeep, Beyond Light) that it brings together.

The title is placed above the number 2 in thin capital letters. In translation, Destiny means fate. During development, the project was called Project Tiger because of the engine used. The choice of the final name is related to the world’s history developed for the shooter. The game determines the fate of the Solar System and the Last City, where the remaining humans hide from attacking representatives of other worlds. Being a Guardian is also fate. Becoming a defender of planets that once belonged to the human race, the player is given a specific mission, a duty to fight against the attacking evil. Overall, the game decides the fate of humanity, so the name is chosen very accurately.

The capital letters convey the importance of the mission, upon which successful completion depends on survival. The thin font shows that success always hangs by a thread.

Destiny 2 Symbol

Next to the title, there is a special three-pointed element with rounded ends. It is also present in the logo of the first Destiny game. However, there, on the triangle, a star map is visible, giving the player an understanding that the events take place in space and the plot is related to interplanetary travel. In Destiny 2, the element has a black-and-white color scheme. In shape, it resembles the following:

  • An unusual joystick with a control wheel. The association links the logo with a computer game.
  • A spaceship transporting the player from planet to planet.
  • One of the masks worn by the Guardians.

The three rays may hint at various triads of related characters, such as humans, Awoken, and Exos; the human race, AI, and extraterrestrial beings; Cabal, Titans, and Guardians; Osiris, Vex, and Guardians, etc. The inscription and the symbol seem to hang in the air, hinting at constant space flights.

In other emblem variations, the number 2 is moved to the right and reduced to the size of the inscription or placed below.

Font and Colors

Destiny 2 Emblem

The logo’s main color is black, symbolizing the era of Darkness that has befallen Earth and the surrounding planets, which the Traveler made habitable for life. It’s a time when the Traveler sacrificed itself, no longer able to protect people, and then the warriors of Light – the Guardians – appeared, one of which the player becomes. The white elements in the emblem reflect the supernatural weapon, the Traveler’s Light, with which the Guardians fight the Darkness.

The font of the inscription is LTC Twentieth Century Medium Small Caps.
