Just earlier last week, Bungie announced that the upcoming expansion that is planned to come to 2017’s Destiny 2 will be revealed this coming Thursday, but like most things good, it seems that the disclosed DLC has already been leaked spoiling the announcement along with revealing some other unexpected details as well.
According to a datamine of the recent patch via ResetEra that dropped on Destiny this past Tuesday, users discovered a promotional image that labels the approaching expansion as ‘Shadowkeep’. Looking at the image from above, it reads that the new story downloadable content will be something players have already experience by returning to the moon to “journey deep into a mysterious enemy citadel.”
Deprived from the image, it does not detail which faction will be the primary focus for the alleged Shadowkeep, or if there will be a new group to be introduced in the coming expansion. The image also shares that a physical Collector’s Edition which will most likely be available for pre-order following the announcement.
Atop of the one already revealing leak from the one datamine, user Ginsor also discovered through another datamine of this current Season of Opulence that cross-save will be another announcement that will be revealed this Thursday.

What does this mean for Destiny users? That those who have friends on another platform that does not plan to hop over and re-earn their loot through hours of playing, again, could soon be able to simply just load their initial Guardian progress on the opposing hardware.
But this is where it gets a little more complicated: hours following the recent leak, Kotaku confirms through their sources that cross-save will in fact be coming to Destiny 2, but PlayStation 4 users will be exempt from accessing the platform-shared feature. Sharing that Sony is still “in the air” about PlayStation 4 participating in cross-save, but has not been completely ruled out as of yet.
Outlet News Editor Jason Schreier also details that hearing from five different sources that the Bungie title will also be making its way to Google’s upcoming streaming platform Stadia. Details on if Destiny 2 will be coming to Stadia will also be detailed the same day as part of the platform’s respected Connect livestreamed presentation at 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST.
Ultimately, all that was detailed these past few days are still unofficial until properly revealed, but the likeliness of seeing these pieces of content to be announce later today is very probable. The Destiny 2 livestream will start later today at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST.
Destiny 2 is out now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
