Destiny 2: Forsaken Is The Next Big Expansion

Bungie has officially teased out the name of the next major piece of Destiny 2 content: Forsaken. The expansion is rumored to be something more akin to the size and scope of The Taken King, and will add a whole new enemy faction along with a campaign, strikes, a new raid and more. 

Based on the quick teaser, the expansion looks to return to The Reef, the home of the Awoken in the first game. We never found out what happened to the Awoken Queen and her people after the battle with Oryx, so it should fill gaps in the story as well as provide an interesting new location.

The reveal will take place tomorrow, June 5 at 9am pacific/12pm Eastern on Bungie's youtube page

 

Our Take:
Destiny 2 has had a rocky first year, but it was still a great game with a much better foundation than the original.  Unfortunately, the support for the first game was much more comprehensive and clear with fans, and is is frustrating to see Bungie make the same mistakes all over again.  Hopefully this will be the last time we have to wait for a major expansion, a year out, to bring fans back. Nonetheless, I am incredibly excited to see what they bring to the table with Forsaken, as The Taken King was an amazing expansion that changed the original and I hope this one follows the same path.
