Destiny’s next expansion could be “The Taken King”

2 min read


It’s been almost a year since Destiny released. And since then, it’s been staying the course on the DLC promise, realising its potential. And there’s more DLC on the way. Now, I don’t who you are, or what you want. If it’s money, I can assure you that I’m quite broke after buying a Hatsune Miku body-pillow. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have acquired over a very short career. Skills that make me an annoyance for people like you. If you let my game go, that’ll be the end of it. I will…Dammit Bungie hung up on me.

NeoGAF did some digging and discovered a new Bungie trademark for “The Taken King”. According to the application for “downloadable video games” that was filed on April 28, it’ll tie into two of the existing Destiny expansions, The Dark Below and the soon to be released House of Wolves. There’s a neat little logo attached to it as well, which looks quite similar to the symbol of the Hive alien race. Check it out:

And just for extra clarity, here’s the Hive Grimoire card:

Destiny taken (2)

House of Wolves is almost here, launching on May 19. It’s purported to be one of the bigger content drops for Destiny, although it could soon be outclassed by the rumoured “Comet” that is arriving in the Northern fall which Taken King could be part of. I’m planning to properly dip into Destiny soon myself. I’ve been patient, the game is cheap enough now and I want to see if that’s paid off. Show me some potential, yo.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
