Destiny Year 3 Could Bring Back Year 1 Raids
Bungie is now “absolutely considering” the possibility.
Of the many requests fans have made to Bungie for Destiny, one seems to echo continuously – updating the Year One raids, like Vault of Glass and Crota’s End, to new Light level standards. Bungie has acknowledged this by simply noting there were no plans for the same but the sentiment could be changing.
Rise of Iron director Christopher Barrett spoke to Polygon about content in Year Three of Destiny and when asked about old raids coming back, he said, “It’s always consistently been in the top 10 list. Since the second raid came out: ‘Hey, we want to go back and play older raids.’ The simple answer is it’s a matter of priority.
“If we spend time bringing that stuff, that means less new stuff we can build. For this fall, in Rise of Iron, we wanted new stuff. New new new. Let’s give new places to go, new raid, stuff like that. But we certainly hear that fans would love to have a reason to go back to some of the old raids. So we’re absolutely considering it.”
It’s possible that next year’s April update sees a return to Vault of Glass much like 2016’s update signaled a return to the Prison of Elders. We’ll know for sure in the coming months so temper your expectations otherwise.
