Update #2
way more information by Jason Schreier who knew about this: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1285379

OP:
--
I know somebody that works at Activision.

And he was on a plane and then a train and saw a presentation on another person's laptop.
(No, serious mode: This is what is being internally communicated to employees.)

Vicarious Vision and High Moon will help out.
Raid matchmaking is in.

Update:

I expect D2 to feel more like a new game than a continuation of D1. What I heard is that the reason it was rebooted earlier this year (and is now helmed by GAF poster Luke Smith) is because the original version felt too much like an expansion. I'm expecting them to change everything. I don't think Bungie has decided yet what you'll be able to bring over from year 1 or what you'll get as a reward for being a long-term player. But I expect a fresh start.

Wasn't that the plan from the start?

Talking about their 10 year plan thing that got leaked from the Cod trial.

Here's the document.

It was strange that the first game missed the platform considering the massive playerbase and huge popularity of similar products.

no he said plane THEN train. You can't go from a plane to a train, you'd fall out of the plane before you got there. SHEESH

With ps3/360 presumbly not supported for the sequel, would it be safe to say its gonna be 60fps on pc... and hopefully consoles?

guess it depends on how much better it looks.

Well the last time a plane was involved in a leaked game it was legit.

It was always expected that D2 would come to PC.

If raid matchmaking is really in then I hope they don't dumb down the raid for it.

Errr...that was a weird way of describing it. Could've just said - I know someone who saw the presentation -

The 'train and then plane' bit almost made me think you were doing a comic routine (no offense meant, benny!)

Would be interested. Whatever they better have inclusive matchmaking and design that works on all modes this time vs a random "have 5 friends or sort it out yourself offline with other strangers" approach.

I like the idea of the Raid's but they simply failed to attempt the challenge of making them inclusive at all IMHO and while I understand how rushed Destiny must have been given launch content status vs how it evolved i expect them to solve this for a full sequel.

It's a reference to GAF leaker Crazybuttocksonatrain/plane I think?

Or maybe a different GAF reference, see post below:

They could just make it an option similar to how they let you choose Normal or Hard difficties for Nightfalls/Raids.

That's how I see myself. A proper failed comedian.

It was just a callback to the yearly Ubisoft leaks.

That Dang Ubisoft guy leaks everything. Anyway not that I specifically believe this but I do believe Destiny 2 will come to PC because that was part of the plan from the beginning. They should of ported the first one over even a year later like GTA V though.

I keep hearing about 'what do you want for Destiny 2' and other fan-talk about the sequel and I don't get it: isn't Destiny like an MMO in that it will keep expanding for years and not have sequels? Maybe with the the next console generation. It seems really off that they'll split the userbase between to massive games within the same generation.
Also, I am willing to bet they won't call it '2' but use a subtitle- ala MMO style.

I don't know. I'd jump into a 'Destiny 2' because I feel I missed the boat with the current, but I don't see it happening. They spent too much time, effort and money establishing this big new IP that is MMO-ish. Seems too soon for a 'sequel' just yet. I could be wrong, though. it's just a gut feeling.
