Destiny: The Collection leaks on Amazon with an August release date

Could Bungie be planning to release another version of Destiny to retailers this year? That's what it looks like judging by this leak.

8

Bungie appears to be planning to release yet another version of Destiny to retailers in the near future as an Amazon listing for Destiny: The Collection has popped up online.

The yet-to-be announced collection popped up on Amazon’s UK site, which shows both an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of compilation. The title appears to releasing fairly soon as listings for both versions show it will become available on August 18, 2016 in the UK. This date is approximately a month prior to the release of Destiny’s upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron.

In addition to the standalone version of Destiny, Bungie also released Destiny: The Taken King, which included the base game, Expansion I, Expansion II, and The Taken King. This would mark the third release of Destiny, although at this point, it’s unknown what Destiny: The Collection would contain. Given its tentative release date, we’d find it unlikely it would include Rise of Iron on the disc itself, although a voucher for the upcoming DLC could be included in its packaging.

We've reached out to Bungie and Activision for comment and will update our story accordingly.

      That wouldn't make sense at all if it didn't include the new DLC. The legendary edition last year just had a code. The thing is that all the DLC is locked until the day of, but it's all downloaded ahead of time in a patch.

        Clarification: if it didn't include the rise of iron it would be the same content/package as the legendary edition.

      Why would anyone buy thing at this point? I feel like everyone that was ever wanting to play Destiny has played it by now,and adding another collection won't really temp many people that were on the fence or had no interest at all into buying it.

      At this stage Bungie needs to start getting people hyped up for Destiny 2.

        I'd guess because there are plenty that still play on the 360/ps4 that are looking to upgrade soon. I'm also pretty sure destiny 2 is a year out, so why not have an all in package?

          Ps3, not 4.

          This is probably the reason.

          I upgraded late but played destiny exclusively towards the end of my 360s life. I recently bought the legendary collection and put my $5 down on rise of iron to get that sweet, sweet poster that I traded to my boss.

          If this collection had been on the shelf I would have picked it up instead.

            Once Wadmaasi is back from his summer vacation make sure to stop into our Destiny threads. He's a drity traitor though and has been playing his ps4 stuff more than his xbox stuff though lately so we hate him.

        Uh, you drastically underestimate the power of marketing.

        Yes you are right that there is an amount of players who will not buy this, but there is an unknown quantity of those who will.

        You can bet that Activision's marketing team is way more aware of the possible number of this unknown quantity than either of us can speculate.

      At this point I'd buy this if it came out on PC
