Ahead of its big year two reveal stream tomorrow, Bungie has dropped the name of its next big Destiny 2 (opens in new tab) expansion, due out in September. It will be called Forsaken, and thanks to the teaser trailer we know the Reef will be home to at least part of it.

The new title is probably a reference to Fallen Captain Mithrax, the Forsaken, who appeared in the Chances and Choices mission in the Enemy of My Enemy World Quest. This interesting figure is part of the House of Dusk, a Fallen House that was formed after the Red War.
The Reef, in case you're rusty on your lore, is an important location for the Awoken and is located in an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Mara Sov, Queen of the Awoken, could be found there until the events of The Taken King. She's currently MIA, but Bungie has hinted that her story isn't over.
"This is totally spoiling, like, Destiny 2020 or something, but when we get to that world down the road where that original Pirate Queen comes out, I think it's going to be a really powerful moment," said creative story lead CJ Cowan in 2016. (opens in new tab)
