Bungie just announced the launch of Destiny 2's second expansion, Warmind, on May 8, featuring artificial intelligence from the game's backstory.
According to speculations, the Warmind could be Rasputin or Charlemagne, who were both mentioned in the expansion's description that the PSN store accidentally leaked.
"Charlemagne has reawoken on Mars and has imprisoned Rasputin within an ancient vault," the description read.
"Work with the elusive Ana Bray — long thought to be dead, in order to combat Charlemagne's Remnants, free Rasputin, and uncover the secrets of Clovis Bray."
However, the title of the second expansion in the description was Gods of Mars, which might muddle the credibility of the supposed leak.
Nonetheless, Bungie will not keep its player base in the dark any longer. The developer promised that more will be revealed on April 24 via a Twitch livestream. The trailer will also be released by then.
