In their quarterly investor meeting, Activision Blizzard announced that they expect to bring a large new expansion to Destiny sometime in 2016, and intend to release a full-fledged sequel to the game in 2017. Along with this information, They also shared the latest sales and stats for the game, with the game hitting "record digital attach rates" with Destiny: The Taken King and posting 25+ million users logging nearly 3 billion hours playing the game. 

Besides the investor call, a few more details were discussed during the Weekly Update from Bungie, which states they still intend to release some content this Spring:

This week at Bungie Crimson Doubles is in full swing, but that’s not the only dance afoot.

Prior to the holiday break we mentioned a second, larger update slated for Spring. That content release will feature a significant Light increase, a bunch of new gear to earn and equip, and new challenges for PvE players seeking some more fun experiences and replayability.

Beyond that, the team is focused on delivering a large expansion later this year, and a full Destiny sequel in 2017.

As work wraps up in the weeks ahead, look for more details about the Spring content, as well as more information about our bigger projects in the months that follow.

Thanks for your patience, and thanks for playing.
