Bungie announced on their official site today that the House of Wolves event for Destiny will not include raids. This news comes on the heels of the prologue’s release earlier.
According to the team:
House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity. We didn’t make this decision lightly. Our team has been humbled by the reception of Raids in Destiny and we are creating a new Raid for a release later this year. House of Wolves will have a new cooperative end game activity focused on variety, replayability, and skill – a new battle Arena called The Prison of Elders.
Meanwhile, Bungie has revealed a calendar of events leading up to the main event’s launch:
