That was the original plan for Destiny 1 and they got close to that so I'm not sure why it would be that crazy.
Remember, Destiny launched with a Raid and got another one only three months later with Expansion I (Dark Below). So it almost happened.
The original plan was for Expansion II (House of Wolves) to come out 3 months later and include another new Raid. But HoW got pushed back and came out 5 months later, without a Raid, as they were focused on trying to fix all the issues with vanilla Destiny.
Also part of the original plan: retail expansion in the fall (which became The Taken King), followed by Expansion III and Expansion IV. Those plans changed because after TTK, they moved to focus on a legitimate sequel that would fix all of the back end issues with Destiny 1.
Expansions III and IV never happens while Rise of Iron released when Destiny 2 was originally planned to. RoI only exists because they needed something due to the Destiny 2 delay.
The original road map:
Knowing what we know about Destiny 2, I believe this is the general outline they are going back to. And I personally believe they'll be able to do it now that they have all of their development ducks in a row.
