Year 2 is coming this fall

E3 is next week, but Destiny 2 developer Bungie is getting things out of the way today by lifting the lid on its plans for the game’s second year of content.

So far, Bungie and publisher Activision have stuck to the same exact schedule they used during the first year of the original Destiny: launching the game in September, then releasing one expansion in December and a second one the following May. For the sequel, there was Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris last year and then Destiny 2: Warmind just under a month ago.

Year Two of Destiny 2 will kick off this September with the game’s third expansion. Bungie announced Monday in a teaser for today’s reveal livestream that the expansion is called Destiny 2: Forsaken. The studio said in its most recent development roadmap that it plans to also deliver quality-of-life improvements like weapon slot changes and new modes alongside the third expansion.

Bungie’s livestream is set to begin at 9 a.m. PT; you can watch it on Twitch above. In the meantime, check out our theory on what the “Forsaken” name means.
