Could this be our new expansion?
With both The Taken King and the new April update behind us, it seems that Destiny is not done with us yet. The next expansion may have just leaked due to a gorgeous art piece that first appeared on Reddit, but has since been taken down. However, thanks to Bungie Informer some screenshots of the next possible Destiny expansion were saved from disappearing into the aether. Since this, there has been no word from either Bungie or Activision confirming or denying this possible leak.

Dubbed “Rise of Iron” this piece showcases a familiar face in the Destiny universe, standing atop some snowy rubble with a flaming axe. Now Lord Saladin is a well known established figure within the Destiny cannon, so this could be a possible backstory to both the character and Iron Banner itself. As for the location, this could easily be Europa which was one of the locations that almost made it into Destiny. It also seems like we could be receiving more melee items, as axe he wields is clearly a Solar based weapon.
With this newest expansion set to release sometime in the fall, could this be a pre E3 glimpse or an elaborate hoax? Let us know your thoughts below!
