Bungie is going to host a Destiny 2 stream on August 24 where new details will be shared on The Witch Queen and Season of the Lost, the looter shooter’s next big expansion and next big season respectively, but ahead of that, it seems a major leak has started doing the rounds online that contains significant details about what the developer has planned for the game.
The leak originated on the RaidSecrets Discord server with a burner account, and since then has been shared extensively on Reddit and other social media. According to the leak, The Witch Queen will feature new weapon archetypes, weapon crafting, and more. A summary for the expansion allegedly reads: “Darkness returns to Sol, revealing itself to be a powerful tool that Guardians can wield. Humanity’s views are shaken by new discoveries about the Light, Traveler, Darkness, and the Entity behind the Pyramids — The Witness. Destiny’s ultimate enemy revealed.”
There are also some mentions of Lightfall, the next expansion in the works that is currently on the schedule after The Witch Queen. Interestingly, the leak also claims that the end of this year will also see Destiny 2 launching for the Epic Games Store.
Meanwhile, major overhauls for Trials of Osiris, Strikes, Iron Banner, and more also seem to be incoming, while there will, of course, be new Exotics as well. Where raids are concerned, it seems Bungie is preparing to bring back some classic raids from the Destiny 1 days, including Wrath of the Machine and King’s Fall.
Most interesting, however, are the details of a Halo crossover event. This has been in the rumour mill for some time, but the leak claims that the event is planned for December 2021 to celebrate Bungie’s 30th anniversary. It will allegedly take place on a Halo ring and add other Halo-themed content as well. This will include a Halo armour set for each class (Spartan armour for Titan, Arbiter armour for Warlock, ODST armour for Hunter), a Marathon armour set for each class, an ONI-themed battle pass, two Halo-themed missions, and four Halo weapons (Gravity Hammer, Magnum, Sniper Rifle, Battle Rifle). If it does happen, it would align with Halo Infinite’s planned Holiday 2021 launch as well, so that’s something.
This is all unconfirmed information, of course, so take it with a large grain of salt for now. August 24 is just a couple of days away though, so we’ll probably know more about what the next few months hold for Destiny 2 very soon. Stay tuned for all of those updates.
