"The Hive" is the Bungie PvP lab (Destiny)

hive_orb01 is the name of the character - not the box. The video shows numerous "hive_orbXX"s running around, but what looked (to me at least) at first glance to be Taken Hive might actually just be the generic names Bungie was using for the testers there. We're used to seeing "xxxx_bng" IDs in the trailers showing new gameplay - maybe they are using "hive_orbXX" for the testing of this hive-themed expansion.

I think these characters are just pre-mades in the Bungie PvP lab upstairs. That room is called "The Hive." And the PS4's code name is "Orbis," right? Therefore, hive_orbXX seems to fit.

I wouldn't be surprised if the XB1's in that room were hive_durangoXX or somesuch.
