This Week in Destiny (TWID) is a weekly blog post from Bungie's Community's Team centered around Destiny news and Destiny community highlights.

The TWID was announced as a replacement for the TWAB (This Week at Bungie) in June 2023[1] due to the announcement of the new Marathon game and wanting to keep Marathon's news separate from Destiny. To further establish that line, each week’s blog post is announced on official Destiny social channels rather than on Bungie’s channels.

Below are the typical items highlighted in every weekly TWID blog post.

  • Intro

Official Explanation of Rebrand[]

"REBRANDING THE TWAB[1]

"For as long as anyone can remember, there has been a weekly check-in between Bungie and our community. Back in February of 2016, we rebranded the “Bungie Weekly Update” to “This Week At Bungie.” This was done primarily because, at the time, there was a lot of confusion when a live game put something out with the name “Update” and there weren’t patch notes to read.

"Fast forward to today, and it’s time once again to evolve the name of our weekly ritual. Don’t fret, our weekly check in for Destiny news and community highlights will continue! The main change here is that we will be keeping things Destiny-specific, so we need a name that reflects that since Bungie has now publicly announced a new game.

"Starting today, the weekly Destiny blog will be named This Week in Destiny. As you may have noticed already, each week’s blog post will be announced on official Destiny social channels rather than on Bungie’s channels, and we’ll continue to drop the occasional standalone blog with in-depth details and insights from the dev team. Now that you know the new name and the reasoning behind it, you can do what you do best, Destiny Community: Meme away! But first, please join us in bidding farewell to the TWAB and welcoming the TWID."
