Over the past few days, several players have spotted a bug in Destiny that locked them out of additional content that appears to be included in the game. Some of the events have been previously announced by Bungie as DLC, but a few of them reveal future content and expansions that have not been officially announced yet. The in-game leak clearly reveals other story missions, strikes, and raids, all of which take place on planets that come with Destiny.
It’s still unknown if the leak was intentional by Bungie, however, the developer did respond about it to GameSpot and confirmed those placeholders are indeed for upcoming content, but are still in development.
Below is the full response from Bungie’s David “DeeJ” Dague:
We noticed that you noticed that we already have plans for upcoming content packs in Destiny. We do! They have activity names (which may or may not change) and we have a really good idea what they’re going to contain. They even have placeholder nodes in the Director, as you’ve already discovered.
But neither of the Expansion Packs we’ve announced are finished.
People at Bungie are hard at work to complete content for our first post launch pack, ‘The Dark Below,’ as I type these words. It will be finished soon. It releases in December. Soon, we’ll detail it out for you so you can see exactly what we’ve been working on.
Thanks for playing. Thanks for the passion. We know you want details. We’ll talk more soon.
New updates for Destiny are expected to roll out over the next few months, and the very first DLC pack titled The Dark Below will launch in December 2014.
