Destiny 2 to receive new maps, including two vaulted locations in future seasons

Destiny 2 Assistant Game Director Joe Blackburn recently tweeted about the developers’ plans for the PvP experience in the game. He explained that the first half of 2021 revolved around improving the foundation of the PvP modes like Crucible. He later mentioned that this will also happen in Season 15 with the removal of three-peaking and new reputation system for Trials of Osiris. With a strengthened foundation, Blackburn said that they can now finally invest their time in introducing new stuff.

He mentioned the developers will now ‘open the faucet’ of new content for PvP in Destiny 2. This will begin with the porting of two Destiny 2 vaulted maps to the game’s new engine in Season 16. Following that, the developers will also introduce a brand new map in Season 17, which will have some new environments. Finally, Blackburn also revealed that Season 18 will add a map from the world of Destiny to the franchise’s sequel.

The changes for the PvP experience in Destiny 2 don’t end with just new maps. Blackburn has excited a lot of fans by revealing that the developers might bring back the fan-favorite mode of Rift. The developers haven’t completely agreed to add it again because they want to see if it will still hold up well with the new fast gameplay of Destiny 2. Along with that, Blackburn also said that Bungie is currently working on new modes. So fans don’t have to worry about the PvP experience not receiving any new content.
