On Monday, Bungie announced that Destiny 2: The Final Shape has been delayed and is now expected to arrive next year. The highly anticipated expansion has been granted extra time to ensure it lives up to expectations. Originally slated for February 2024, Destiny 2: The Final Shape will now take form next summer on June 4, 2024.
“The Final Shape needs more time to become exactly what we want it to be, so we’re moving its release date to June 4, 2024,” explains Bungie in a press release. “The Final Shape is the culmination of the first ten years of Destiny storytelling and, for Guardians everywhere, countless hours spent together. We want to honor that journey, so we’re taking the time we need to deliver an even bigger and bolder vision, one that we hope will be remembered and treasured for years to come.”
The Season of the Wish, starting tomorrow and extending until The Final Shape’s launch in June, promises new experiences for players. While the majority of content for Season of the Wish will run from late November to February, new content will be introduced to keep players occupied until the release of The Final Shape. This includes new weekly progression-based quests known as Wishes, accompanied by the debut of Moments of Triumph.
Following this, Guardian Games is set to make its return in March with a refreshed focus on class vs. class competition. April brings the two-month content update titled Destiny 2: Into the Light, which will be available to all players. This update aims to prepare Guardians for their journey into the Traveler. Additionally, three new PvP maps are slated for release in May.
Bungie assures players that the extra time will be instrumental in bringing The Final Shape to life in a way that surpasses expectations. Guardians can look forward to additional information in April, including all-new gameplay footage to showcase the significant content additions currently in development. In the meantime, Guardians can channel their inner Witcher with the latest crossover event in Destiny 2.
