Looks like that Kotaku source was right: the as-yet untitled full-game sequel to Destiny won't be hitting store shelves until 2017. Bungie confirmed the previously leaked information earlier today in a blog post, stating quite clearly that there will be "a full Destiny sequel in 2017." That's not all though, no, no, no. Bungie also re-emphasized a significant update they've got coming to Destiny this spring, featuring "a significant light increase," some new gear, and new PvE challenges.

More importantly, though, the team is doubling down to produce a new Destiny expansion before the year of 2016 is out, meaning you won't have to wait until next year's full game sequel to see some new content. That's a relief to many, I'm sure.

One of the most surprising exclusive games on Wii U is the sexy, action-packed, angel and demon-killing, hack and slash adventure known as Bayonetta 2. The original Bayonetta was on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (but not Nintendo platforms), but when its sequel was on the verge of being cancelled due to a poor financial situation at SEGA, Nintendo swooped in and secured the exclusive title for their new console. The latest episode of Did You Know Gaming digs deep into the story of Nintendo and Platinum's partnership, as well as the history and origins of the Bayonetta franchise.

TT Games has been developing the LEGO Star Wars franchise for over a decade. And just by looking at the new screenshots for the latest entry in the series, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it's clear how far they have come. These screenshots feature characters from the film, including Han Solo, Chewbacca, Rey, and Finn. Besides the content of the seventh film, this new game will canonically expand the story of The Force Awakens and will also feature some bonus levels from the original trilogy, which you can see in the new screenshots. The game will be released for current and last gen systems on June 28th.

LEGO is taking a big risk on an unknown property later this year. The independent film Star Wars: The Force Awakens is getting a LEGO game in June despite its measly reputation as only the third highest grossing film of all time. It's great to see LEGO tackle a project as iffy as this one. What's more, the upcoming game will feature six missions that serve as canonical backstory to The Force Awakens, including the mysterious mystery of how C-3P0 got his red arm.

At last year's E3, Microsoft impressed audiences with a great presentation of the HoloLens. A recent discovery on the Windows Store by a group of NeoGAF users has revealed that we may be hearing more information about the HoloLens in the near future. According to these NeoGAF users, a hidden Windows Store listing shows an app called HoloStudio, which could imply that the app will have something to do with the HoloLens.

The LEGO games have always been enjoyable, if not overtly simplistic, romps through block-ified versions of our favorite worlds. Regardless of whether you or your children love them, without LEGO Star Wars, they would not exist at all. That's why it is incredibly exciting to report that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been announced today by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Konami has released its financial report for the nine month period ending December 31st, 2015, and despite their controversial actions as of late, the company remained profit positive during the first three quarters of the fiscal year. As such, Konami is anticipating a year-long operating profit of ¥24 billion, or just under $200 million.

The biggest contributor to Konami's financial success was their Digital Entertainment division, which of course includes their video game business. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a big profit-driver in that category, and Konami reports that Kojima's final Metal Gear title has now shipped over 6 million copies worldwide since launch.

Activision has shown the first trailer for their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, which is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game is developed by Platinum Games, and if the trailer is any indication, they are going to give it the authentic Platinum treatment. What does this mean? In short: there will be a whole lot of fast-paced action, and in this case, that action is done in a cell-shaded comic style, similar to Transformers: Devastation.

Back in December, the Australian Classification Board leaked the existence of a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game developed by Platinum Games. We haven't seen much of the game, but Platinum did release a batch of screenshots, confirming the game's existence. We should be finding out a lot more soon, as Platinum has announced via Twitter that the "official leak" of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is coming tomorrow. We'll keep you up to date as the news breaks.

Comcept's spiritual successor to Capcom's Mega ManMighty No. 9 – was officially set to launch two weeks from now on February 9th. The Kickstarter-funded game that breached $4 million in total crowdfunding had already been delayed twice from a Spring and Fall launch last year due to bugs and other issues cropping up in the game's online features.

But despite Keiji Inafune's assurances in October that Mighty No. 9 would not be delayed again, a new Kickstarter update has announced that this will unfortunately be the case. The delay is again due to these same online issues, leaving the release date as a vague Spring 2016.

Read on after the jump for Inafune's explanation on the matter.

This Valentine's day, you may be able to cut the cost of a candlelight dinner and instead battle others to the death in a couples' PvP match in Destiny! For one week this February, a special event called "Crimson Days" will be taking place in honor of Valentine's Day. Although more details are going to be released next week, we know that the update features romantic decorations for The Tower hub world, a special couples' Crucible match called "Crimson Doubles," and even some "sweet" loot, which I would bet on being red or Valentine's Day-themed. The update is scheduled to release on February 9th.

It's been a little while now since Destiny's "The Taken King" expansion released, and players of the massive-multiplayer shooter are eager for what's expected to come next: its first full game-sized sequel. A leaked contract in 2012 showing Activision's and Bungie's "ten-year plan" for the Destiny franchise had Destiny 2 (official title unknown) releasing in September of 2016, but unfortunately it's sounding like we all might have to wait a little longer.

Kotaku claims to have had conversations with "people familiar with goings-on at [Bungie]" which revealed that higher-ups at the studio just last week delayed Destiny 2 out of September 2016. The article makes no mention of where the release date ended up, but, assuming the source is trustworthy, it'll be later than this September, and, given how late in the year that month already is, it's entirely possible that Destiny's first big sequel might not come out until 2017.
