A brand new Destiny 2 leak appears to point out that Bungie is planning an enormous Destiny 2 Halo crossover later this 12 months to assist fill the hole in between the launch of Season 15 and the delayed Witch Queen expansion. The leak additionally claims to have a bunch of particulars about The Witch Queen growth and story, which we gained’t be detailing right here in case any of them do end up to be true.

As with all leaks and rumors, we should preface this one as soon as once more with a couple of grains of salt. However, this explicit leak bears some veracity, maybe, or maybe not. It comes within the type of a Pastebin dump of data. Evidence shows that this doc was created again in January (although that may be faked), and among the particulars have already come true. For instance, it cites the Witch Queen tagline as “Survive the Truth,” which is what Bungie used when hyping up next month’s stream to show off the new expansion and future of Destiny 2.

It additionally has correct particulars concerning the previous couple of seasons. So until information is being manipulated, a lot of what’s right here appears to be respectable. However, these particulars haven’t been in any other case confirmed or corroborated in any approach, and it’s doable it might be getting modified after the actual fact to make it seem as if it’s appropriately predicting issues. As we mentioned earlier than, huge grain of salt right here. We’re leaning in the direction of this one not being true, however it’s a enjoyable little bit of fan-fiction nonetheless.

The leak claims {that a} 30th Anniversary pack will launch on December 21, 2021, celebrating Bungie’s 30th anniversary in Destiny 2 with crossovers not solely with Halo, but additionally different Bungie titles MythPathways into Darkness, Oni, and Marathon.

  • Halo:
    • -Sniper (Heavy Exotic)
    • -Gravity Hammer (Heavy Exotic)
    • -Battle Rifle (Legendary)
    • -CE Magnum (Legendary)
  • Marathon:
  • Myth:
  • Paths and Darkness [sic]:
  • Oni:
    • -Not positive but (possibly Season Pass armor)

This occasion/pack will reportedly embrace a gun-only PvP mode known as “Hardware,” (no skills, supers, and so forth.), 4 new PvP maps (two new and two coming back from Destiny 1), a particular occasion getting Strange Coins from The Nine to purchase Gjallarhorn from Xur, and a dungeon with returning Destiny 1 weapons. It’s additionally rumored to embrace armor cosmetics which are Halo-themed. The 30th Anniversary Pack will reportedly price $20, however it’s unclear what’s a part of the pack and what shall be a part of a free replace at the moment. Additionally, a whole lot of issues may doubtlessly change earlier than it finally ships, if this leak bears any weight in any respect. Which it most probably doesn’t, for numerous causes.

In some methods, it looks as if the 30th Anniversary Pack is being staged as a sort of “Season 15.5,” larger than a Seasonal Event however smaller than a full Season to bridge the hole between Season 15 launching in August 2021 and The Witch Queen/Season 16’s launch in early 2022 (reported to be February 22, 2022). Whether its staged that approach by Bungie itself or by some overzealous fanfiction author attempting to get invisible web factors stays to be seen.

TheGamePost, who first reported on these leaks, notes that “we’ve seen Bungie using some quotes from Halo including, ‘Don’t make a promise…’, ‘I need a weapon…’, and ‘You know the music…’,” which might be hints about what’s coming, or it may simply be Bungie leaning into its historical past.

If you need to view the full Pastebin document for yourself, you can see it here, however be warned, there are doubtlessly main spoilers for what’s to come (or doubtlessly an enormous little bit of fanfiction to hype you up for one thing that gained’t find yourself being actual).

Some have famous their very own apprehension concerning the legitimacy of the doc, noting that a lot of it appears to be written from a more moderen perspective (referencing the Presage mission) regardless of claiming to be written again in January (effectively earlier than Presage launched for gamers). Others have identified contradictions all through the doc, although some declare this might be as a result of it was a doc up to date by quite a few individuals over time. If that’s the case nevertheless, it places the created/modified date of January 2021 into query, creating extra points with its accuracy.

Whether true or not, Bungie does want to have one thing prepared to go to fill the hole of time with The Witch Queen pushed out to early 2022. Season 15 will launch in August, which means an additional two to three months tacked onto the tip of the season earlier than the brand new growth arrives. Bungie can have to do one thing to lengthen the season till Witch Queen arrives.

It shall be simply over a month earlier than we discover out simply how correct the leak is. With the data now sufficiently dated to July 14th, Bungie’s reveal of The Witch Queen, Season 15, and the way forward for Destiny 2 on August 24th will both affirm particulars or blow the lid off of this pretend. For now, it’s a minimum of a enjoyable learn, notably should you don’t thoughts potential spoilers. Just don’t take it too severely till we hear extra official information straight from Bungie itself.
