Analyst: Destiny Will Get A Taken King-Sized Expansion In 2016
According to a recent Kotaku report, we're not getting Destiny 2 this year.
But that doesn't mean fans shouldn't expect more substantial content in 2016.
In a note to investors (as cited by GameSpot), Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz said he expects to see another big Destiny expansion this year:
"Our model assumes a Taken King-sized expansion for Destiny in 2016. We did think that Destiny 2 was a possible, and even likely, source of upside in 2016. However, as long as there is new Destiny content in 2016, we feel confident in our overall company growth assumptions and would remain bullish on the long-term value of the franchise."
Creutz did add the caveat that if no "meaningful" content released in 2016, that would be cause for concern. Last year, we got several paid pieces of add-on content; The Dark Below, House of Wolves, and one of the biggest and best expansions of the generation, The Taken King. Currently, no new expansions have been announced.
The only information we have concerning Bungie's 2016 plan came in December, when the team said to expect a bevy of activities, events, features and content. Yes, MMOs require a continual influx of fresh content to keep the players happy.
