"Warlocks turned away from the study of the Traveler in favor of your ultimate obsession... learning the exact nature of the Darkness." - Osiris

The ending cinematic and the vision from the Traveler both point to the pyramid ships as being the ultimate foe of the Destiny universe, The titular darkness. The comments from Cabal Emperor Calus that he met something on the infinite abyss at the edge of the universe also fits.

With the Osiris DLC as the next installment, we may see more information on the nature of the darkness and it's motives.

This in contrast to the D2 prerelease comments where Bungie indicated they were not going to explore the nature of the Darkness in the base game. It seems that both the Traveler awakening and the Darkness also reactivating, the war in heaven will start to become more prominent.

I expect the first DLC will hype up the need to prepare, and that would lead to us trying to reactivate and recruit the Warminds, leading to the Rasputin DLC (#2). The follow on DLC would return to the Fallen, and the house of Dusk. This would also bring us back to the Reef and the Queen. That leaves the final DLC as the Hive invasion, as they try to sweep in and scoop up the Traveler before the Darkness comes to finish it off.
