For those active in the Destiny side of things, this may not be much of a surprise, but I feel this should get some exposure.
Recently, there’s been talks. There was a leak a few times back about the future of Destiny 2. This was shared from a Discord server that confirmed most of this info (Destiny 2 Sanctuary). This leak traces back all the way before Season of the Chosen was launched (so about 3+ months ago), and I myself can confirm some of those points did happen.
Obviously, the important thing is Bungie’s interest in the Halo CE Magnum, as part of a celebratory pack of the studio’s 30th anniversary.
There’s also the line “MANY exotic quests, weapons, armors celebrating Bungie, so Marathon & Halo tie-ins”.
While the CE Magnum would be the only weapon plausible of receiving an exotic quest and treatment, it’s not crazy to think other Halo weapons created during Bungie’s reign could be under consideration (as legendaries). As for armors, this could mean the addition of armors seen in Halo 3 and Halo Reach into Destiny 2 (alongside Marathon designs, possibly).
While this may seem very far-fetched and not at all possible (given that it’s part of a leak), another piece of evidence that gives this credibility is the recent Bungie blog, which contains 2 Halo references:
“I need a weapon…” | “Don’t make a promise…”
Normally, I would say they’re making a reference for fun, but after this leak (which, again, is filled with points that became true), I begin to think there’s something going on behind the scenes.
Of course, not all of this came true, namely the “guardian games unchanged for the most part, but potentially class specific crucible days” bit. But the false info was few and far between all these. Even some points that are still to happen were confirmed to be actual changes coming to Destiny 2, tho of course, they can be taken with a grain of salt.
Now onto the other matter: there has been, to my knowledge, no word on 343’s part on this topic. Nothing about crossing Destiny content into Halo, or being in talks with Bungie… Obviously, Bungie can’t simply add Halo content as they don’t own the rights to Halo anymore.
What do you think? Would you mind having Destiny content in Halo (Infinite and maybe other spinoffs)?
EDIT: I’ve seen people talking about an actual crossover, as in, a game between the two franchises. Let me make it clear that is not the idea of this topic This post was made to give awareness to a leak (which could or not be true) and discuss the possibility of exchanging content from one game to another. I believe a game crossover would be mostly just Destiny with elements of Halo, in which case, it wouldn’t deviate much from what Destiny is.
UPDATE: As Gamescom gets further behind us, it’s been revealed that the Halo mentions in Destiny range between an Arbiter-inspired armor for the Warlocks (with a Halo ring for the bond), Needler shards in a Titan’s shoulder, and a helmet following Master Chief’s color scheme (not design, just colors).
