I think it’s fair to say Bungie has been trying to phase out the Xbox 360 from it’s future Destiny content releases. In it’s weekly update Bungie announced that the next run of Trials of Osiris will go from the 26th to 30th of August.
This will be the last time the trials will feature on the Xbox 360. Bungie referred to the 360 in it’s latest news report as a “Legacy console” meaning that they will no longer receive updates or future events. Whilst Destiny will still be available it seems that there will be limited access to sections of the game.
This will be the last event before Septembers release of Destiny: Rise of Iron which will not be released on the Xbox 360. It’s sad but this will probably set a trend for other games and will eventually phase out the Xbox 360 all together.
Here is a list of what will be available on Legacy consoles:-
Destiny Events and Activities that will still be available on Legacy Consoles
Heroic Missions and Strikes
Daily and Weekly Crucible Challenges
Raids and Boss Challenges
Prison of Elders and Challenge of Elders
Armsday Foundry Orders and Test Weapons
