Destiny 2 players can expect a steady stream of new content when the game hits shelves later this year, as Activision takes steps to avoid repeating mistakes made with the original online FPS hit.

During a recent investors call, Activision said there would be a "continuous calendar of events" for Destiny 2 players after the first paid expansion lands, which is expected to be in winter 2017. This suggests that the game won't end up the content abyss Destiny became in the months following its release, which didn't receive its first full expansion until a year later.

Activision and developer Bungie want to hit the ground running with Destiny 2 and appear to be lining up additional content for the post-launch period.

As reported by VG247, this could include Overwatch-style seasonal events that offer players the chance to grab exclusive loot or undertake special quests for a limited time.

Whether this means there will be fewer large expansions similar to Destiny's The Taken King and Rise of Iron is unclear, but the publisher has said that it has a "robust content plan post-launch" that should enable it to "keep up a steady stream of content to meet player demand".

Activision has also promised some additional surprises for PC players that will be announced on 18 May, which is when the first Destiny 2 gameplay reveal is due to take place.

Destiny 2 launches on Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC on 8 September. You can stay up date with everything we know so far about Bungie's epic sci-fi shooter on our Destiny 2 hub page.
