Bungie promised at the end of 2015 that they would be bringing new content to Destiny in the new year and today via the Bungie weekly update they have announced that the next big game update 2.2.0 will release on April 12th. Taken from the blog post:

Now the very simple truth is, fans are struggling with Destiny right now and have been for while. The news that the follow up main release, Destiny 2, which was expected to be in 2016 but reportedly now not happening has strengthened doubt in Bungie’s direction in the Ten Year plan for Destiny. This big update will be an indication of what players can expect. But with Ubisoft’s new The Division launching so successfully, Destiny now has a true rival.
Bungie has some serious work to do in restoring faith from its fans!
