Was Destiny 3 Just Teased by Luke Smith?

The saga of light and dark may be ending, but a new adventure could be beginning.



In the ever-mysterious world of game development, sometimes a tweet is more than just a tweet. Luke Smith, the Executive Creative Director at Bungie, may have just dropped a tantalizing hint about Destiny 3. While discussing the monumental effort behind “The Final Shape,” the last expansion for Destiny’s “light and darkness” saga, Smith’s recent tweets have sparked a bit of speculation among fans, analysts, and of course YouTubers.

YouTuber Aztecross, known for his keen eye and detailed breakdowns, recently posted a video dissecting Smith’s tweets. In his analysis, he pointed out something rather peculiar: the word “Hope” was used exactly three times, and each time it was capitalized. Aztecross, never one to let a detail slip by unnoticed, suggested that this might be more than just a coincidence.

Smith’s tweets were ostensibly focused on the hard work and dedication that went into “The Final Shape,” which promises to be an epic conclusion to Destiny’s ongoing narrative. But fans couldn’t help but wonder if the repeated, capitalized “Hope” was a sly nod to something more. After all, in a world where every word from a game’s creative director is scrutinized, the choice to emphasize “Hope” three times feels oddly deliberate.

Of course, this could all be much ado about nothing. Perhaps Smith is simply an optimistic fellow who likes to emphasize hope in his messages. Yet, the gaming community knows better than to dismiss these little quirks outright. The number three is significant—three expansions, three core classes for light, three for dark, and now, potentially, Destiny 3?

While we can’t say for sure that Destiny 3 is on the horizon based solely on Smith’s tweets, it’s certainly a curious choice. Capitalizing “Hope” three times seems like an intentional move designed to catch the eye of attentive fans. Whether it’s a clever tease or just an odd but unlikely quirk of Smith’s writing style, it has certainly set the rumor mill spinning.

In the world of Destiny, where every hint and teaser is analyzed to the nth degree, Luke Smith’s tweets have added a delicious layer of intrigue. Whether Destiny 3 is truly being hinted at or it’s all just a wild goose chase, one thing is certain: Bungie knows how to keep its fans guessing. For now, we can only “Hope” (see what we did there?) that more concrete information will come to light soon.
