Destiny 2 could get a mobile spin-off thanks to patents filed by Bungie

Bungie has patented controls for mobile gaming, further spurring reports of a Destiny mobile spin-off. The Game Post (opens in new tab) reports that Bungie filed six new patent applications earlier this year in March, which have now been published online.

All six patents reference virtual controllers or controls you could use on a touchscreen or mobile device. One of the patents specifically mentions Destiny 2 alongside the patented technology of a virtual controller.

This, arguably more so than any other of the five new patent filings, suggests Bungie intends to use this new technology with Destiny 2 rather than a new game in development.

These new mobile control patents immediately bring to mind a report from earlier this year claiming Bungie was working on a mobile FPS game.
