Cole McGrath, just electric
The Sparrow and new raid look good . Hope it plays well and requires a variety of strategies to complete and fight against the enemies/boss.
Here's a little video I made of Radi glitching out a bit while we were looking for Public Events. I couldn't stop laughing the whole time and it was even funnier because everything was normal on his screen so he didn't know till I told him.
Image shows a bigger DLC pack called "Comet: Plague of Darkness", coming September 2015, only after mentioning that House of Wolves will release on March 10 (which does fall on a Tuesday). Next two DLC packs after Comet appear to be "Vex ???" (too hard to make out second word, possibly Vex Void, Vex You, Vex V60, or even just Vex TBD) and "Forge of Gods". Forge of Gods could possibly have to do with Cabal, but I'm not entirely sure. It appears to be very early in production.
As FWC said in another tweet, though, only a rumor.
EDIT 2: As /u/the_vault-technician so kindly pointed out, the OG OG source is from this Italian Destiny forum in which the poster claims that the photo was taken during a Bungie meeting. He talks more about Comet, saying, "I repeat: the expansion Comet (after the house of wolves) NOT 'DESTINY 2, This is just a massive DLC that will be marketed on a disk from which to make a download of destiny, is like a DLC but normal much larger and heavier."
Everything's been translated from Italian to English so it obviously won't be as easy to read. You'll also have to scroll down a bit for the photo.
I think we can consider Comet/Plague of Darkness as Destiny 1.5. It'll include tons of new content, and that even includes three new subclasses, two new weapon types, a new base level, and a new location called "Hive Ship" all according to the image. It'll have its own DLC, Vex and FoG. I think, though, that it'll be released as a "re-release", physically, of Destiny, and that it'll include TDB, HoW, and PoD.
EDIT 3: /u/Zereta also reminded us of the data-mined list of Hive bosses leaked back in October. The list includes enemies like "Gnath, the Diviner", "Cryth, the Siphon", "Noctu, the Lightslayer", "The Wall", "Voldor, the Willkeeper", "Divined Vision", "Dredge Exploder", "Storgor, the Shatterer", "The Veil", and The Oversoul. (Source: http://gamingbolt.co....firmed-missing) At the time, we believed this to be the list of Crota's End bosses, despite "Crota, Son of Oryx" being noticeably absent. However, now we know that it obviously isn't. That being said, each name, when discovered, was tagged with "Raid" and "Hive Ship". See where I'm going with this? It would appear that this was actually the leaked list of bosses included in the upcoming raid in Comet, as, again, "Hive Ship" is listed as a playable patrol area in the photo with Comet. Therefore, it's very safe to say that Comet will revolve around the Hive. Now, as to what the Raid actually has to deal with, we'll have to wait and see. There's a fair chance that it involves Oryx, given that Eris has hinted at us fighting him through some of her in-game dialogue, though his name is absent from the list. Feel free to speculate!
Earlier today, we published the House of Wolves prologue. We hope you’ve enjoyed it. We know many of you are craving more details. Over the course of the next month, we’ll be revealing exactly what you’ll find in House of Wolves this May. Much like our recent rounds of live update news, we plan on sharing many of the most important details with you right here on Bungie.net.
House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity. We didn't make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year. House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability, and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders.
Below, you’ll find the currently planned calendar of events for House of Wolves news. Next week we’ll be kicking things off by revealing the upgrade path for your existing Exotic and Legendary gear. We know this is an important subject for you. After, we'll detail out Trials of Osiris and Prison of Elders, both brand new additions to Destiny's end game activities.

No new raid is surprising for this expansion. I'm a bit disappointed I guess since it sounds like very little content again to be called an "expansion" (this time replacing raid content with something else rather than adding more content on top of it), but I guess we'll see what's really included over the next few weeks. Thinking about this game and Bungie is making me sad, lol.
That battle arena really needs to be innovative and have a lot more content then to keep people regularly playing Destiny again and interested in the next pieces of DLC they have lined up.
I can't believe the next dlc will not feature a raid, this could really damage the community. Most players only hit up the nightfall, pvp and raids these days. A new raid is what a lot of players are holding out for!
The battle arena better be something amazing akin to Bloodborne's random chalice dungeons - that could hold me over for a while
