The February update in "Destiny" comes with a new event called "Crimson Days." Bungie

“Destiny” dev Bungie is planning quite a number of things for its space shooter. And by that, it involves a great development for its planned sequel coming in 2017 and a new set of toys for the game.

The first is the news that Christopher Schlerf, known for his work with 343 Industries for “Halo 4,” has now confirmed that he is working with Bungie on “Destiny.” Schlerg served as the lead writer, and then went on to do some more writing with Bioware for “Mass Effect: Andromeda,” according to a report from GamesRadar.

“All that said, very happy to be back in Seattle, working with this scrappy little company called Bungie that some of you may have heard of,” Schlerf said over his official Twitter.

“Destiny” is also trying to shoot its way into the figurines and playable toys territory, as it has recently sealed a deal with Mega Bloks for the license on the “Destiny” toys. “Destiny” is Activision’s latest foray with Mega Bloks, following the likes of “Call of Duty” and “Halo” in the Mega Bloks toy development department, Metro reported.

A video featuring the new lineup of “Destiny” toys can be seen below. Compared to other Lego toys, Mega Bloks are more like action figures that showcase the different characters in the “Destiny” universe. Nevertheless, these are pretty good collectibles for major fans of the franchise.

While it’s easy to speculate that he will be working on “Destiny 2,” the sequel that’s meant for 2017, Schlerf himself commended a fan who put it out there for him. As the fan had suggested, it was Schlerf’s “destiny 2 work with Bungie.” To which Schlerf himself had recognized the pun and its intended meaning.

For now, fans should have gotten their just rewards for Crimson Days, as the new Weekly Reset has already arrived, completely ending the February event. Following the event, Bungie has confirmed via its official blog that Ghosts will be delivered via the Postmaster, and players who have competed in seven matches will receive one.

This was supposed to address the easy way out trick that some players have employed by way of suicide pacts. As such, players should have been forced to compete at some level, with the Ghost set to be released on Feb. 23.
