Destiny isn’t set to get any “giant” expansions next year according to Bungie.
The developer behind the game revealed that Destiny will be getting more “event-based” additions, such as the new Sparrow Racing.
“With Taken King, we are moving to a more event-based model–things like Festival of the Lost and Sparrow racing, which is our winter event, and then smaller events such as Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris every weekend,” senior designer Derek Carroll said. “Rather than doing these giant, monolithic DLC packs, this way everybody who’s an owner of Taken King can enjoy these things,
He continued saying, “There’s lots of different reasons as to why–I don’t know how deep I can get into that,” Carroll said. “But basically the live team is charged with maintaining the game and keeping players happy, feeding them new content and surprising them with things they didn’t expect.”
“I think by design the idea is to have these events which are surprises–so we can understand why players on the one hand want to have their lives mapped out for the next year,” he added. “The way we’re going is: you can expect new content from the live team in Destiny although we’re not really telegraphing that. Certainly, players can expect new events and new content throughout the next year. We’re taking it one step at a time.”
