Bungie has released the new section of the Destiny 2 development roadmap for the summer. The first update, called rallies, will launch on May 29th, and it will bring a kind of PTR to Destiny 2 PvP, called Crucible Lab. The announcement also covers what we can expect to see in July, and some stuff coming in September, when Year 2 Season 1 begins.
So, the Warmind DLC is in full swing. The launch of the new content marks the ending point of the previous Destiny 2 roadmap, so it’s time to look to what the future holds. And, appropriately enough, Bungie has released a new section of the development roadmap, detailing what Guardians can look forward to during the summer. The roadmap ends with September, which will mark the start of Year 2 Season 1. Bungie does reveal some of the stuff that will be coming in September, but there will be more to come.
First off, update 1.2.1, which will launch on May 29th. Called Rallies, the update will bring improvements to Faction Rallies, sandbox changes to Exotic Armor, and something called Crucible Labs. The Exotic Armor sandbox changes will presumably make some armors more useful, just like the Warmind update did for a bunch of exotic weapons. The most interesting point, though, is Crucible Labs. What it will be is basically like PTR in Overwatch. Or, as the post puts it: ” Crucible Labs will give every player of Destiny 2 access to experimental PvP content. We’ll then have a chance to solicit your feedback to guide our final iterations.” Bungie will be releasing more details before the update launches, but this explanation is pretty clear on its own.
Next up, the July update. Among other things, it will bring the Solstice of Heroes Seasonal Event, Prestige Raid Lairs for both expansions, and dole out Year 1 Triumphs. Oh, and further sandbox changes to exotic armors. Then, we enter a period of silence until September. That update will introduce Gear Collections, Weapon Slot Changes and Weapon Randomization, new gameplay modes, and more to come still.
