Bungie has announced that Destiny 2’s big fall expansion, Beyond Light, has been delayed until November 10th. As a result, Seasons of Arrivals will be extended until Beyond Light’s release.
We have made the decision to move the release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light to November 10.
As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2. We have a powerful story to tell and incredible new features that we’re really excited for players to experience. As always, our goal is to make the coolest, most entertaining expansion we can possibly make for our fans. To that end, we are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date.
The past few months have been a challenge and will continue to be during this pandemic. We’ve learned to create together in a new way, by having to work apart from one another. Despite these hurdles, we’re still committed to the same level of quality that our fans expect.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling more of what we’re working on for Beyond Light and what that also means for Season of Arrivals, which will now extend to November 10. Beyond Light sets the stage for an incredible future in Destiny 2 and, though it’s coming later than we originally anticipated, we’re excited to continue that journey with you this November.
Patriot’s Point: A bummer for sure, but the current working conditions have to be pretty hard and you can’t get upset at developers for doing what’s going to be best for the game. It’s not like they want to delay, so if it needs to be done then so be it. On the plus side, it gives us more time to enjoy this season which has been pretty great and in particular more time to spend doing the Prophecy dungeon, which to me is one of the best pieces of content they’ve ever done.
