New Destiny Leak Could Show What's Coming Next

Curious about the future of Destiny? Here's a leak you might find interesting -- a graphic purporting to lay out what developer Bungie's got planned for the rest of 2015 and beyond.

The image, which has apparently been floating around the internet since October but only drew widespread attention this morning thanks to a massive Reddit thread, shows the already-announced first two DLC packs (The Dark Below and House of Wolves) followed by a larger "expansion" called Comet that's slated for September of next year. After that is something illegible ("Vex" something?) and then something called "Forge of Gods."

So is it real? One source familiar with Destiny's development told me he believes so -- and that there have always been plans to release an expansion next fall with the name Comet -- but many of the details may have changed. So the overall gameplan -- House of Wolves in March; the bigger Comet this September; two DLC packs after that -- could remain the same, but the exact contents of each update are probably still up in the air.

The full breakdown from this image, as determined by Reddit's magnifying glasses:

House of Wolves: three new story missions; one strike; one raid; new PvP maps; the addition of the Reef (where you visit the Queen in the main game).

Comet: 12 new story missions; three strikes; one raid; one patrol; one public event; three new sub-classes; and the increase of "Base Level" to 30, which will presumably change the Light system quite a bit. Also, a new map called Hive Ship.

The third DLC pack will also add story missions and strikes; the fourth is all blank on that image.

This all makes sense, of course -- and the roadmap fits perfectly both with what I've heard from industry sources and from what we've seen in other Destiny DLC leaks. It's possible the exact numbers will change as Bungie keeps working on this stuff, but it looks like now we've got a full idea of just what's coming this year, not counting free updates and other patches.

    Probably not coming back to Destiny, criticism of their content roll out aside, the original content was not enough in my opinion to warrant any post release purchases; at least not from my wallet. Then again I know that others enjoy the game, so kudos to them.

      I'm one of the people who enjoys it. I find it hard to disagree with any of the criticism levelled at the game, but I also can't deny that I just enjoy playing it. For me, Destiny is somehow greater than the sum of its parts. But I have warned people about buying it.

        I loved playing it, I wish I was still playing it, even now I'm tempted to pick up the DLC and get back into it, but everything about the content delivery just kills it for me. The price, what you get, how you get it, everything is just way off where it should be.

          The first 16 levels were great, but after I finished the main campaign I found the destiny equivalent of item levels left a bitter taste in my mouth and while vault was probably one of my favorite coop experiences in a while, I just have no drive to go back. For me the game is done and over, its now time to find other sources of fun.

    Wow if the craptastic episodes are $25 a pop then the "expansion" Comet must be the price of a full game. So instead of yearly releases like say CoD it is yearly releases with quarterly micro releases? So what $200 a year almost to hopefully get the full story?
    What kind of crack pipe are they sharing around Bungie's offices now?

      Other sources seem to believe that 'Comet' will actually be a two-pronged release, with the content of Comet coming free to those who already have the game (as an attempt to 'refresh' and draw back interest in the game), while also rereleasing the game in retail with the first two DLC packs included.

        That sounds far more promising. Maybe the euphoria from the crack pipe will lead to something positive after all.
        Though it makes the crap $130 edition of Destiny I bought harder to swallow. Not cause others get it free but cause I feel ripped off and then others get it anyway...

    Worries me they've got it all planned out like this. Fuck activision.

      Yeah, how dare they have future plans for their MMO! Winging everything would obvious be a much better option.

      Yeh, like video games should just, you know, happen.
      Like um, One day NO - next day YO!

    I agree prices are somewhat high for what should have already been included in the original 'vanilla' game but this takes nothing away from the fact it is such a solid shooter.

    Each to their own but I really enjoy the tactics and co-operation required in raids and bigger strikes. I love the game, others don't. That's what makes us all different..........humans .

      The shooting feel is very, very solid. They got a fps to play perfectly at 30fps. I do give Bungie that credit. Just do not understand how everything else went incredibly south.

    I can't bring myself back to playing it. Went to have a look at the new dlc and it just seems to be the exact same missions just to level up new pieces of armor. I played more than my share of the game, but the new content just doesn't bring enough to the table for me.

    I wonder if these story missions will have, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh wait, that's right, a story.

      Scan this box, Guardian!

      Done! Now what?

      The Darkness, its coming!

      Why Ghost? WHY? WHAT IS IT?

      Shh, scan this box over here because.

    As someone who has just spent the better part of his week off grinding and in doing so managed to finally reach Level 29 last night, the idea of Comet changing the Light system considerably fears me with fear, loathing and also a little bit of hope.

      Let us go to Vegas and do blow then? Maybe it will seem better. Depp can voice our Ghost and give the bland shit a personality.

        For comical aspects I thought an Arnold Schwarzenegger ghost would be pretty awesome

          I am glad I read that. Now in my head he is Arnie too. :)
