BungieCon: Recently made news due to the trademark. With Bungo expanding and E3 shitting the bucket, they plan to do big Direct-Style announcements during the Summer months. Expect these going forward for the company. Talks are underway of turning this into a big thing like BlizzCon once the pandemic goes the way of Cayde-6. So far, these events will be completely virtual because of Covid. Now onto the juicy stuff:
– The biggest thing is the UI/UX changes. Expect major QOL and PVP/PVE updates. For example the Director’s destination maps will be updated and you can now “pin” things to the map. Expect changes and differences between Current Gen + PC vs Last Gen.
-Old Chicago is finally coming. About the size of EDZ. Features Fallen, Hive, Taken, and Vex. All of these factions are united under Savathun’s rule.
– Story focus around Quiria, Raid focus on Savathun.
-Caiatl, Eris, Ikora, Mithrax, and Saladin will be making appearances. Whether or not this will be part of Season of the Witch or the DLC is unknown to me. Also have no information on any subclasses from my source at this time.
Lightfall is still in early development (duh), but this expansion will be the “infinity war” of Destiny. Source didn’t know much, as a lot of Lightfall information is being held tightly under wraps. A new expansion is currently being developed to be released after lightfall. This will end the light v darkness saga and kick off the “alpha centuari” saga of the Destiny Franchise.
A Pegi-18 rated horror game is in the very early stages of development with Chris Barrett in charge of the project. This will be along the likes of Halo 3: Recon in terms of scale. Supposedly will feature the “pyramid-head” -esque veil creatures that AnonTheNine had described in a previous leak years back. CB’s Destiny 3 project was scrapped and a lot of the assets were reused in WC/LF as well as this spin off. Release window is unknown at this time.
A portion of the studio is also developing the new IP that Bungie has been developing for a few years now. This is the Netease project. Expect an announcement sometime in mid-late 2023 alongside Project Tenebris, Destiny 2023, and the 2024 expansion for Destiny 2. Bungie’s international studio will be assisting in development, as this project will coexist alongside Destiny 2 🙂
