Following this morning's announcement that Destiny's second expansion, House of Wolves, will launch on May 19, developer Bungie has confirmed that it will not have any new raid content.
"House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity," Bungie's Eric "Urk" Osborne revealed in an update on the developer's website. "We didn't make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year. House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability, and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders."
Osborne also outlined some of the events leading up to House of Wolves' release:
There'll be another event on Friday, May 8th, though Osborne didn't offer any details about it.
Finally, Bungie announced on Twitter that the next update for Destiny, version 1.1.2, will be deployed tomorrow morning. The update will allow Guardians to display their helmet while in the Tower, increases the size of vaults, and adds a gear lock feature to prevent accidental dismantling.
