During a recent Activision Blizzard earnings call, mentioned that Destiny‘s fall expansion, the details of which still have not yet been officially revealed, will be “the biggest addition to the Destiny universe yet.”

We have a very robust content plan for Destiny starting with our second major expansion pack, House of Wolves, and then you’ll also see content being dropped throughout the summer. And then in the fall we will have a major release, which will be the biggest addition to the Destiny universe yet, across all modes of play. Unfortunately, I don’t have more details than that today, but we’re confident it’s going to be incredibly appealing, not just to our current fans, but also to people who haven’t yet joined the Destiny universe; it’s going to be that big of an expansion.

An image that was reportedly leaked early in the year does point to the expansion being quite large, and a recently filed trademark seems to indicate that the fall DLC will be called The Taken King.

In other Destiny news, the patch notes for update 1.20, which should have automatically been downloaded and installed yesterday, have been released. While the patch is already installed, won’t make any of the following changes until a later date.
