Destiny's next expansion titled Rise of Iron - report

The name of Destiny's upcoming expansion has been revealed in a new leaked poster. A picture of the poster first appeared on Reddit, clearly showing the promo art.

The image shows Lord Saladin, the NPC associated with the Iron Banner PvP event in the game, wielding a flaming hammer. He appears to be standing near the wall on Earth, surrounded by wolves.

The poster was later confirmed to be authentic by two Kotaku sources "familiar with Bungie." The site's report also confirms that Rise of Iron will feature a new raid, as players have come to expect from major Destiny expansions.

The new raid is said to be "loosely based" on an earlier, Fallen-themed one, that was initially planned for the House of Wolves DLC in Year 1 before it got scrapped.

Bungie and Activision have already confirmed new content for Destiny will drop later this year, as Destiny 2 got moved to a 2017 release. The new expansion will likely release in September, judging by how the studio's release schedule has been thus far.
