Destiny 2 Season 15 is just around the corner, and fans are on the edge of their seats, and Bungie has just given Guardians their first look at what the future beyond that holds as we edge ever closer to the long-awaited Witch Queen Expansion.

Excitement is beginning to build around the reveal of Destiny 2 Season 15, as Guardians around the world wonder what will be in store for them over the next few months.

We’ve already had the new era’s name, and main character leaked, as well as major ability changes confirmed by Bungie. But now the Destiny 2 Witch Queen Expansion has been revealed by Bungie, showing off Savathun in all her glory along with all of the other exciting content that will be arriving in the new expansion for Guardians to enjoy.

Destiny 2: Witch Queen release date

According to an early listing seen on the Australian PlayStation Store, the Witch Queen Expansion is slated for a February 22, 2022 release. This Destiny 2: Witch Queen release date was confirmed by Bungie on August 24, 2021.

The follow-up to the Beyond Light era of Destiny 2 was originally supposed to drop sometime this year but was pushed back until early 2022. This makes 2021 the first year in the series’ history that players didn’t see a major content drop.

The new Expansion will land on both last and next-gen consoles, along with PC and Google Stadia.

Destiny 2: Witch Queen content

The full reveal gave players the best insight into what Guardians will be doing once the new content releases.

It teases the “definitive” Destiny 2 campaign, as well as a new location in Savathun’s Throne World. Players will be tasked with delving into the new map to “uncover the mystery of how she and her Lucent Hive stole the Light.”

The Throne World sounds like a diverse addition to the game’s lore, complete with everything from a grand palace to a murky swamp.

There will also be the opportunity to craft custom weapons with special mod, shader, and stat combinations to help you tackle the new Witch Queen challenges.

In addition to the new destination and weapon crafting, Guardians will also be able to experience a brand new weapon archetype known as The Glaive.

According to the official description of The Glaive weapon archetype, players will be able to use it to “perform powerful melee combos, fire projectiles, and deploy a powerful energy shield.”

One of the most exciting content reveals for Destiny 2: Witch Queen expansion is that players will have to fight against Hive Guardians, as Savathun has been able to harness the power of the light and create Hive Guardians who have their own Hive Ghosts, which will likely be one of the toughest challenges the community has had to face.

Competitive Destiny game could be in development with Bungie job listing

A Bungie job posting strongly points toward a new competitive game set within the Destiny universe being in development.

Destiny 2 players in Crucible

According to a job listing from July 2022, Bungie are developing an “exciting new title” in the Destiny universe with competitive elements.

Destiny 2 is currently in its 17th season and is showing no sign of slowing down, with rumors claiming a Destiny mobile game is in development and a job listing pointing towards a competitive title being in development.

Destiny devs Bungie are certainly no stranger to developing games that competitive players love, with the original Halo trilogy having a booming esports scene. Now, this job listing appears to confirm that Bungie are developing a brand-new competitive game set in the Destiny universe.

Bungie’s job posting reveals they are looking for a Senior Concept Artist to work on an “exciting new title” where the dev will need to work on “guns, characters, armors, vehicles, environments, and other seasonal art needs.”

The job posting is rather vague when describing the game, but there are a couple of bullet points that give us a strong indication.

The listing appears to confirm that it’s associated with Destiny, where the Concept Artist will need to “Continually push aesthetics of the Destiny universe.”

There’s no guarantee that it’s a competitive-focused game but it should have at least a competitive element where “Experience with and love of competitive games” is listed as a “nice-to-have skill.”

Aside from these snippets of information, what the game’s about is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that it’ll be a standalone version of the Crucible mode, but with it being a “new title” it’s unlikely.

The job listing also doesn’t clarify if this is the leaked mobile title or something completely different, but don’t expect it anytime soon if they’re still hiring senior developers.

Is Destiny getting a mobile game?

The Chinese company NetEase has previously worked on mobile titles like Diablo Immortal, and The Game Post claims that it is currently hiring staff to work on an “unannounced FPS mobile game.”

According to The Game Post, this information came from a “source with knowledge of NetEase’s development plans” and Bungie are said to be collaborating with the Chinese conglomerate for this project.

Bungie has allegedly been working on a new Destiny game for “over two years now” so they might be bringing a mobile port similar to Apex Legends mobile or the upcoming Warzone Mobile. However, it’s possible that they could be developing an entirely new IP altogether.

Is there a Destiny Mobile release date?

At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for this mobile game. However, it’s been 5 years since Destiny 2 first arrived, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Bungie are gearing up to release a new entry. We’ll let you know once we hear anything about the release date.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this information is based on leaks, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until we get official confirmation from either company about the development of this title.
