Seventh day of the seventh month – Bungie Day brings news of Witch Queen, Giving Campaign

On July 7, or Bungie Day as it is known to Bungie’s superfans, the developers of Destiny announced a date for a Destiny 2 Showcase that will reveal “the future of Destiny.”

This showcase will take place on August 24, and will most likely feature news about the next slated expansion, The Witch Queen, which is set to release sometime in early 2022. There may also be some news regarding the Destiny Universe that Bungie has mentioned in past press releases, but that is unclear as of yet. They revealed this news with a tweeted image of a Hive symbol with the tagline, “Survive the Truth.” Fans have pointed out that this must tie into Savathun’s storyline, as she is the Hive master of deception, and because the expansion is most likely going to involve her as a key player. Also interesting is that the Hive symbol adorning the poster bears a striking resemblance to the Destiny tricorn logo, the symbol for the franchise since its launch in 2014.

Bungie also announced the Bungie Foundation’s 2021 Giving Campaign. The campaign’s proceeds will be used to uplift the Foundation’s three core pillars:

  • Improving children’s health and wellbeing
  • Uplifting the voices and rights of all individuals and communities
  • Providing humanitarian aid in times of crisis

For donating, players will be able to earn in-game rewards depending on the amount that they give to charity. Here is the breakdown:

  • $10: 2020 “The Bungie Foundation” emblem\
  • $25: Above, plus the NEW “Circadian Guard” emblem
  • $50: Above, plus NEW Exotic Ghost Shell “Buoyant Shell”
  • $75: Above, plus NEW Exotic Emote “Tiny Tank”

The foundation’s goal is to reach the fitting amount of $777,000 donated by July 20, and already they have raised $360,264 at the time of posting. To donate to the cause, click here.
