This week at Bungie, the Destiny developer outlined their coming plans for the future of the game, including an announcement of a livestream for more details on what Destiny 2's second year will look like.

On June 5, Bungie will be holding a livestream with the development team to talk about the previous year of Destiny 2 and what is coming next. "We’d like to invite you to catch a glimpse of what we have planned for the second year of Destiny 2," Bungie's blog post reads. "We have some big ideas for how we’re going to transform your Guardian lifestyle and reinforce your hobby as an interplanetary hero. We’ll tell you all about it, and we’ll do it live!"

Bungie is also doing some tuning to faction rallies. During faction rally events, players can now only pledge to one faction per account. Reputation progress is also carried through events, even if the player changes factions between them. Bungie's planning three faction rallies during season 3.

Escalation protocol is also being changed to be a bit easier.

"The moment this weekly update goes live, the Power levels for Escalation Protocol enemies will be lowered in waves 4–7. Waves 1–3 are unchanged and will remain at 370 Power (so still watch out for that level 2 Wizard boss). Players who have stayed on Mars since before this update will need to return to Orbit and land on Mars again to see the following change:"

Our Take
The faction rallies change seems good and I'm interested to see how Bungie is applying the feedback from Destiny 2's first year toward the second.
