Bungie previously said that Destiny won?t end with Rise of Iron?s launch in September. The developer said that it still has a lot of plans for the original game to fill the gap until Destiny 2?s inevitable release some time in 2017.
Bungie Outlines Post Launch Rise of Iron Plans
In the?current issue of Game Informer, the game developer outlined some of the post-launch plans they have in the pipeline that will keep Rise of Iron exciting for players well into the New Year. October will see the return of the well-received Halloween-themed event known as The Festival of the Lost. It won?t just be a rehash of last year?s outing, so expect some new masks to collect in addition to some other ?surprises.?
Following this is the return of another fan favorite, the Sparrow Racing League, which is coming back bigger and better in December. It will feature all-new race tracks based on Rise of Iron?s new setting as well as several new features.
?When we talk about SRL coming back, it?ll probably be wrapped in a different style, not just focused around SRL,? Bungie?s Jerry Hook told Game Informer. ?Because some of the stuff that we learned from our players around the Sparrow Racing League is that some people didn?t like racing. So can you do something with the event that helps support those players a little bit differently? Absolutely.?
Bungie Creative Director Chris Barrett previously said that the studio isn?t ruling out adding more paid DLC post-Rise, but the interview didn?t detail if such content was in the works.
?We want to get to a place where we can ship really great expansions like Rise of Iron and cool events like Festival of the Lost, and that?s sort of the full library of stuff that we want to deliver. We want to keep more regular content for players,? said Barrett in June.
