Bungie has filed a trademark application for "Rise of Iron," which is the name of the rumored Destiny expansion we may hear more about this coming week.

IGN spotted the trademark, filed May 31 with the United States Patent & Trademark Office. The trademark covers all manner of things, including video games of course, but also graphic novels, toys, and even Halloween costumes.

A recent leak suggested Destiny's new expansion is called Rise of Iron and will include a new raid, as well as a new type of weapon (possibly some kind of hammer or axe). It will reportedly be larger than either of Destiny's first two expansions, The Dark Below and House of Wolves.

Last week, Bungie announced it would hold a "Destiny Reveal Stream" on Thursday, June 9, at 10 AM PT. We'll be learning "all about the next threat that you'll confront as Guardians" during the stream, which will be happening on Bungie's Twitch channel. It could be that Bungie reveals Rise of Iron during this event, though that is not confirmed.

Looking further out, Bungie is also working on a Destiny sequel for 2017, which was recently rebooted, according to a report.

Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest on the future of Destiny as it's announced.
