Activision recently had their quarterly earnings report. They confirmed a “major content release” in 2015 and shared some numbers.
Plague of Darkness?
In the conference call, they confirmed that not only House of Wolves is coming in Q2, but also a “major content release coming in Fall 2015.”
Bungie also hinted at this in the weekly update: “[…] we’ll also talk about what we’re planning for this Fall.”
We have a second expansion pack on the way and a major content release coming in the fall and a very robust pipeline planned after that.
Beyond that, whenever you have a large and highly engaged community, there are obviously opportunities for us to deliver a lot of different kinds of content that we think that player base would find valuable and appreciate and that’s what we’re planning on doing.
Could the major content release they’re referring to be the Comet, Plague of Darkness?
For anyone wondering what a “Comet” is, according to Destiny’s contract, it’s a “major downloadable content expansion pack-type software release for each Destiny Game.“
Fall 2015 is also when Xbox users will have access to the PS exclusive content.
Activision Publishing’s Destiny was the most successful launch of a new video game franchise in history. Destiny was also the #1 top‐selling new video game IP and the #3 top‐selling new release in North America and Europe, combined, for the calendar year.
To date, Destiny has more than 16 million registered users and active players are playing the game an average of over three hours per day.
