Destiny 2 is a free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter online-only game. It was developed by Bungie and released in 2017. While Destiny 2 was initially planned to be a pay-to-win game for PS4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows, it became f2p later on under the title “Destiny 2: New Light” in 2019.
The game saw its release on PS5, Stadia, and Xbox Series X/S in the following year. Activision published the game, but Bungie acquired the rights to the franchise in late 2018. The game is a sequel to Destiny 2014 and the later expansions.
The story is set in the mythical sci-fi world; the player shares the multiplayer game in a shared-world environment, adding many RPG elements to this game. The original Destiny allowed the players to have divided activities among PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player).
There is also the PvE feature with three-player “strikes” and dungeons, along with six-players raid. One great thing about Destiny 2 is how it allows the player to roam free upon reaching each destination.
They can further progress their exploration of each area and interact with public events and the NPCs, a feature lacking in the original Destiny. The PvP is not just your traditional deathmatch, but it also features an objective-based mode.
The game was well-received when it came out, primarily focusing on the way they had improved the gameplay, visuals, RPG elements, online multiplayer, and exploration. These qualities were either lacking or not as perfectly done as in Destiny 2. Destiny 2 has been nominated for many awards and has won a lot, like The Game Awards 2017 and the Game Critics Award.
Destiny 2’s current season, “Season of the Risen”, started on the 22nd of February 2022 and will end on the 24th of May. Therefore we should be expecting news from Bungie regarding the new season name and maybe some possible changes anytime soon.
However, we could not wait for that, so we went ahead to find these exclusive leaks just for you all. A Twitter user named Josh Hunt, who had previously leaked the Season of the Splicer name before its release, has also just given us the name for the upcoming season 17.
#DestinySpoilers name spoilers for next season.
I think, maybe, next season is called Season of the Haunted.
At least, that just showed up (with no other content) in their new CMS. pic.twitter.com/ynGkLvEdBD

He talked about how he found the following script in the developer’s CMS, and either this is the official name that will be announced later, or it might just be a placeholder by Bungie. He still had doubts because the name is somewhat similar to the Festival of the Lost, but we can’t confirm any of it as it is not officially out yet. We might see more on this in their “This Week at Bungie” blog, so do take this with some grain of salt. He added:
The particular name I found would only be shown internally when they edit content – it’s not like an actual public page title. It could just be an internal codename and not the real name of the season. Just sharing exactly what I know.
So we can safely say that he is not assuming anything on his own and only providing us with what he knows. The name can be just a codename, a placeholder, or some humor from a developer, but there is also a high chance it is true.
