Bungie fans knew there was more news about the shooter series Destiny came in this week and much of that news arrived a day earlier than expected – there may be an official plan to say goodbye to the last generation of gaming consoles.
A Wednesday update on the game’s UK website has dropped the name of the next one Destiny extension-rise of iron– along with the September 20 launch date. Clicking the promotion box for that news, which features an image of an armor-clad hero wielding a flaming hammer (because you know, video games), loads an outdated trailer for 2015 King taken extension, which leads us to believe that this information was accidentally posted before a scheduled unveiling on Thursday via the game’s official Twitch channel. In fact, when this article went to press, the image was removed. A saved screenshot is posted above.
Additionally, the promotional text box says the expansion is launching “for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One,” which could mean one of two things: that the latest generation of Destiny is officially over or whether the release schedule has been deprioritized to get owners of current generation consoles their updates first. Last generation Destiny players will still get updates to the game at the same rate as current-gen players, but Bungie hasn’t been shy about recommending players make the leap to the next-gen at some point. In particular, last year’s expansion forced such large memory requirements on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (the most popular SKUs of which don’t have giant hard drives) that Bungie made it a point to tell players how to transfer their progress and stats to new systems. could transfer. .
Hopefully we’ll get more clarity when Bungie goes to its Twitch stream tomorrow, June 9 at 1pm EDT (6pm BST).
