Activision Blizzard confirmed during an investors call overnight that a 'major expansion' will be coming to Destiny 2 in late 2018. No further details are known at this point, but the publishing giant has already revealed that the game's second expansion is out in May, so this is presumably the follow-up.
Destiny 2's first expansion, Curse of Osiris, came out in early December last year and added a bunch of new distractions for the Engram-farming shooter, including Heroic Strikes and a brand new story line centring on the titular Warlock.
Developer Bungie has found itself on the receiving end of irked gamers in the past month or so, with players criticising the Halo creator for its lack of communication. To remedy this, the studio has released a detailed roadmap of Destiny 2 content drops for the next few months, although the back half of the year remains a mystery beyond expansion three.
Still, we at least now know that Destiny 2 is going to be getting some major content until the end of the year, which makes sense seeing as how the first game received four expansions spread across two years.
'This is an incredibly passionate group of players and that passion is a good thing, even when the sentiment is critical, because it shows how deeply people care about the game, and we think that’s one of the things that makes this a great franchise, and we’re fully committed to listening to and communicating with our community more frequently and more transparently than ever and making the right changes to improve the experience and we think we have the right path forward,' said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.
The next major update for Destiny 2 will drop next week in the shape of the Valentine's Day-themed Crimson Days.
