Destiny 2 players can expect a "State of Destiny 2021" update next season, assistant director Joe Blackburn reveals. 

Blackburn took to Twitter to talk about the future direction of Destiny. Alongside revealing that players can expect to see an upcoming state of play update in Season 13, Blackburn also teases that "2021 is going to be a little different for Destiny". 

"Last year, I said Destiny's Best Days are ahead. Seeing what's coming, I believe this more than ever," Blackburn writes. "But we have work to do to get there. 2021 is going to be a little different for Destiny. Taking some time to validate our plans, but expect a State of Destiny 2021 next season."

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
