Bungie Confirms “Large” Destiny Expansion For Spring 2016, Full Sequel Expected In 2017

After remaining awfully quiet about the future of its popular shared-world console shooter, Destiny, over the past few weeks, Bungie is finally opening up and sharing some of the studio’s major plans for the coming months and into next year.

On the topic of Destiny during Activision’s fourth quarter 2015 earnings call today, the company announced a “large new expansion in 2016 with full game sequel expected to launch in 2017” in one of three bullet points:

  • The Taken King expansion launched in September with record digital attach rates
  • Over 25M registered users have logged nearly 3B hours in-game
  • Large new expansion in 2016 with full game sequel expected to launch in 2017

Destiny Community Manager David “DeeJ” Dague provided a few more details over on the studio’s official blog” that directly addressed the game’s fans:

Prior to the holiday break we mentioned a second, larger update slated for Spring. That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.

Beyond that, the team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017.

As work wraps up in the weeks ahead, look for more details about the Spring content, as well as more information about our bigger projects in the months that follow.

That’s about it for specifics, but we expect at least some satisfaction from the Destiny community as we learn about Bungie’s general plans and Destiny’s overall future.

Any takers on what Destiny’s next expansion might be about? Hit us up in the comments!

    “replayability.” that tells me old raids are being updated.

    Nearly a year and a half in, and Bungie is still fighting their failure to deliver on the hype. No matter how much content Destiny has, it will always be seen as not enough.

    This game was great before TTK. All you have to do is give it a chance and play it for a little while. You get good guns, you get better at the game. I had everything, so much time into it, but TTK ruined everything especially with unbalanced multiplayer. Fuck that shit. Snipers were just FaZe in Destiny.

    Honestly the game is still good what issues is have with it arent nearly enough to make me abandon the work i put into my hunter the only current problem i have is how over power warlocks are in pvp if they are doing more for pve then im going to happily keep playing though my real curiosity is weather or not the sequel is going to have us make entire new characters as for updates boosting the old raids for year two stats would be nice i miss slaughtering crota and honestly it would be nice to get my word back but all that aside i hope for Cabal based raid and story line or perhaps a new enemy or something to that effect i know thats not extremely likely but i have new players that are enjoying this game and having a blast with the fire team we put together so yes alot of people state taken king wasnt enough but you have to look at it from the stand point of what online gaming is something like destiny isnt very big right now most mmo games are not shooters they have to try to keep it going for the “ten year plan” get the hell over it so the made weapons less OP and give you the option to boost the over all stats of weapons instead of being stuck with a weak version of your weapons yes the raid is perhaps a little much but really what number of you can honestly say you didnt jump into kingsfall more then once just for the hell of it i for one can thank this game for bringing me and my fire team many hours of fun together and really the joy of playing through building up faction rep and unlocking exotic weapons is half the fun of any mmo you want to talk about let downs turn away from destiny it is alot to bring people the best experience but no matter what you do to please the people some one will find a reason to bitch
