Rumour: Destiny DLC Roadmap Leaked, Shows Future Expansions
An image claimed to be from an internal presentation within Bungie appears to show the future Destiny DLC roadmap. The image was originally posted on the Bungie forums, before finding its way to Reddit and Twitter. Here’s the image in question;
The roadmap shows the release date and details of the original Destiny and its first expansion, The Dark Below. The image also suggests a potential release date for the next DLC, House Of Wolves; according to the image this DLC pack will be released on March 10th 2015, which seems legitimate enough as the first DLC pack released exactly three months after the original game, and the next DLC pack is a day over three months further down the line.
If the details are correct, House Of Wolves will take place in the Cosmodrome, on the Moon, on Venus and in the Reef and will include 3 story missions, 1 new strike, 1 new raid and 4 additional PvP maps.
What’s perhaps more interesting is what comes next – a larger DLC pack called Comet: Plague of Darkness, which looks like it will release on disc as well as digitally. The image shows a scheduled September 2015 release date for Comet, taking place on the Moon, Venus, Mars and a Hive Ship. The content will include 12 new story missions, 4 strikes, 1 new raid, 1 new location and 6 PvP maps. A new subclass and 2 new weapon types are also shown to be included.
Again, Comet: Plague of Darkness seems fairly legitimate with Bungie previously saying that Destiny sequels would release on alternate years with a bigger DLC drop in between.
Furthermore, the image appears to show two more DLC packs following Comet; a barely readable pack relating to the Vex and a pack called Forge of Gods. There are no details on release dates for either of these packs.
While the image may have genuinely leaked from within Bungie, it could also be the clever work of an avid fan, so take everything with a pinch of salt for now, although as we’ve mentioned, a lot of the dates and details seem to add up.
What do you make of this leak? Are you still hooked and desperate for your next fix of Destiny, or is the overwhelming amount of Destiny DLC packs and updates just too much to keep up with? As ever, let us know on the forums or in the comments.
