Name of Destiny 2’s next season appears in-game, hints at something ominous

The name of Destiny 2‘s Season 11 has apparently already appeared in-game, shortly after the destruction of the Almighty that marked the end of Season 10.

In Destiny 2‘s first real-time, in-game event, supercomputer Rasputin launched a barrage of missiles against the Almighty, which was hurtling towards the Last City, sending the ship crashing into the mountains beyond the Tower. The event, which was the subject of complaints due to how long it took to play out, was the culmination of all the efforts of players for the Season of the Worthy.

With Season of the Worthy drawing to a close, Destiny 2 players are looking forward to what the next season will offer. At the very least, it appears that the name of the game’s 11th season is already known.

Season 11’s name appears in messages

A few posts on online forum Reddit revealed that players have received in-game messages inviting them to the launch of Season 11 of Destiny 2 on June 9. The messages, which have appeared in French and German, claim that the next chapter of the game is titled Season of the Arrival. While the Spanish version of the message translates to Season of the Visitors, it appears that Season of the Arrival is accepted as the name of the next season of Destiny 2.

A deleted tweet from late May, captured by freelance video editor Daniel Haynes, was apparently true, though the name was Season of Arrival.

It remains unclear what the specific name of Destiny 2‘s Season 11 will be, whether it will be Season of the Arrival or Season of Arrival. Digital Trends has reached out to try to get confirmation on the actual name of Season 11, and will update this article once we hear back.

Nevertheless, whichever version ends up as Season 11’s name, it appears that something is coming to Earth, and given everything else that Guardians have faced, it probably will not be good news. Speculation is that the Darkness will finally return, but players will know for sure once Bungie officially reveals the next season of Destiny 2.

It's that spooky time of the year, and what better way to celebrate than with some limited-time events in every Guardian's favorite game? As is the tradition at this point, Destiny 2 is embracing the holiday season with a limited-time event with exclusive themed rewards around the Halloween holiday. The entire tower will be getting a spooky makeover, but the really exciting part is, of course, the special event and rewards you can earn.

Called the Festival of the Lost, this event is technically still part of the current Season of Plunder but is available for all players for free, regardless of what expansions they have or have not purchased. While Bungie hasn't fully outlined all the specifics of how Festival of the Lost will work, there have been some details shared, plus a couple of leaks, to sink our teeth into. If you want to get your Guardian ready for some holiday fun, here's all the information out there on the Destiny 2 Halloween event.

Why the Destiny 2 and Fortnite collab makes perfect sense for Bungie
Destiny 2 skins in Fortnite.

Destiny 2 is collaborating with the Epic Games Store, including swapping some cosmetics with Fortnite and Fall Guys. This announcement leaked ahead of Bungie's Destiny 2 showcase on Tuesday, and the community reaction was mixed. After all, Destiny 2, Fortnite, and Fall Guys aren't similar games at all. But after seeing the collaborations in action, they make perfect sense. Destiny 2has seen a lot of changes over the past year, and although it's still a far cry from Fortnite or Fall Guys, trading cosmetics fits right into where Bungie, Epic Games, and Sony are heading.

The new skins come on the heels of Destiny 2 launching on the Epic Games Store, where Bungie is offering its 30th Anniversary content pack for free for the first week. Bungie says the collaboration is a celebration of the new launch, with three new skins each in Fortnite, Destiny 2, and on September 13, Fall Guys. Nothing is changing with any of these games; they're just adding new cosmetics. Still, the community isn't taking it that way. The friction with the Fortnite and Destiny 2 collaboration centers around how different the games are. The only common thread they share is that they're both multiplayer shooters, but even then, the games are so different in style and structure that they can't be compared.
