Destiny 2 - The Drifter Bungie
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 tweeted a new teaser from Destiny’s Twitter account, featuring The Drifter and officially announcing the reveal date of Destiny 2’s next expansion as June 9 at noon EDT.

This event is only an hour before Bungie will release Destiny 2’s unannounced season 11. It’s currently unclear if Bungie will announce the expansion in its usual, video documentary format, as the studio has been working from home due to COVID-19.

The teaser itself is only 15 seconds long, and shows The Drifter — the mysterious Guardian in control of the Gambit game mode — in a small shuttle. Players can see him flying toward an icy moon of a larger planet — Jupiter, based on its color and size.

This seems to officially confirm that the next expansion will take players to Europa, a long rumored location in the Destiny universe.

Bungie published and took down an Instagram teaser on June 1, showing Eris Morn wandering what seems to be Europa. Eris and Drifter are two of Destiny’s primary experts on The Darkness enemies currently invading the world of Destiny. And both of them coalescing on the same, small moon suggests the Darkness war is coming soon to Destiny 2.

Update (June 4): On Thursday, Bungie officially tweeted the Eris teaser above. This comes three days after Bungie published this teaser on its Instagram and took it down almost immediately.

As mentioned above, the teaser shows Eris Morn wandering through one of Jupiter’s snowy moons, Europa. At the end of the teaser, Eris has some strange, white power emanating out of her hand, with a looks like new symbol. It’s unclear what this is teasing. Players will likely find out on Tuesday, when Bungie officially unveils Destiny 2’s fall expansion.
