Destiny 2: Beyond Light release date delayed until November

The upcoming expansion has officially been moved back as Bungie works to ensure they're releasing the best work they can.


Destiny 2: Beyond Light has officially been delayed to November, according to an official announcement from Bungie. The decision was made to move the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion beyond its initial release date to November 10.

The developer took to its official blog with the news, noting that the change in release date was ultimately due to the desire to create the best product they possibly could.

"As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2," the blog read. "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."

Originally, the expansion was pegged for a release date of September 22. That's still the date that Content Vaulting is set to begin, so you still need to get through the old content while you can in the interim.

"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," the blog continued.

Now, you can pick up Beyond Light on November 10. Bungie will be showing off a bit of what it's been working on for the expansion as well as what you can expect from Season of Arrivals. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
