Last year, Destiny dropped in with a bang and instantly became one of the most-loved titles of it's time. Since launch, we've seen two minor, and one major expansion.
But what's next?
For anyone who paid attention in the run up to Destiny launch day, you'll remember a leak of information which outlined Destiny's long-term plan. To summarise, we were to expect:
- A major Destiny title every 2 years (Destiny Main Title)
- A large expansion at the halfway point (The Taken King)
- A number of smaller expansions released at regular intervals (The Dark Below and House of Wolves)
Firstly, we'd like to point out that this document was never an official announcement, but so far seems to have closely aligned with Bungie's release strategy.
But the lack of new information suggests a change in tactics. So what are Bungie planning behind the scenes?

One source told me that Bungie has asked the live team—a small group of developers at the studio who regularly come up with these events and other updates for Destiny—to build several new DLC packs over the next year to make up for Destiny 2’s delay. Yet it seems likely those plans will change, too; the live team is small, and that sort of schedule seems as unsustainable as what Bungie tried during Destiny’s first year, which was emotionally and physically exhausting for many on the development team.
Bungie have teased us with the word of new content coming soon. We'll keep you posted as we find out more.
