The way i see things on the forge front for Destiny are like this.. so far Bungie havent said a word about a map editor and there was no evidence of one in the Beta. However I think Bungie may have something so big for this that theyre keeping it classified, my reasons for thinking this are as follows. Bring your mind back to the purchase of "Shadowrun" which gave Xbox360 players exclusive Halo 3 beta access, there was no test for forge. Bungie had announced the forge for Halo3 and forge 2.0 for Halo Reach however I think that after the failure of 343's forge 3.0 and with the help of the cloud and present or next gen consoles Bungie may have put the final bullet in this mother. So far they are keeping extremely quiet about map editing capabilities on all social media and at interviews, the only shred of talk on the subject is from an interview with a Bungie employee who says that the thought of user created content exites him a lot. They know from both Halo3 and Reach that there is a huge community for this and have made comments on how astounded they were to see the forge take off as it did in the past. So I think i can safely presume its a high possibility that good ole Bungie have something tucked up their sleeves as we all know from experience they usually do keep some mindblowing aspects of their games rather hush hush.
There may be a possibility of forging without private matches, maybe the creation of an instance with the ability to grant players world engiene capabilities or perhaps in a future update or dlc we could be graced with it.. after all bungie have said theyre exicted about user created content, aside from a form of forge what can users create in destiny?
