Bungie will reveal Destiny 2’s fall expansion, Forsaken, tomorrow (update)

Year 2 is just around the corner

Bungie and Vicarious Visions/Activision
Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Bungie announced today that it will reveal Destiny 2’s second year of content on June 5. The stream will feature Bungie community manager, DeeJ, and several developers, such as game director Steve Cotton and project lead, Scott Taylor. The team will reveal the game’s upcoming fall expansion, Forsaken, which will probably be a similar size to 2015’s Destiny: The Taken King.

DeeJ promised viewers the stream will include developer responses to community feedback, as well as brand new content for players to explore in September. They’ll also show off an updated version of the Destiny 2 roadmap for players to follow along with all summer at the end of the stream.

We currently know very little about Forsaken, other than it will feature a never-before-seen Destiny mode. The Destiny 2 roadmap’s year two setting currently lists records, gear collections, weapon slot changes and weapon randomization alongside the new mode.

Players can find out more about this new year of content when Bungie reveals it live on June 5 at 12 p.m. ET.

Update (June 4): Bungie has revealed the name and location of the fall expansion in a new teaser. The short trailer shows Hunter Vanguard Cayde-6 landing in the Reef alongside another hunter, likely the player character. At the end, we see that the expansion is called Destiny 2: Forsaken.

The Reef is a returning location from Destiny, and home to the mysterious Awoken player race. The icon shown under the Forsaken name at the end of the trailer also looks to be a Fallen house sigil, which seems to confirm our Fallen-related suspicions.

We’ll learn more about Forsaken during Bungie’s live reveal event tomorrow.
