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.

Quite the metaphorical middle finger to Activision, methinks.

You want stuff on time? F*ck off, it's coming later.

the base game is free to play so I would highly recommend giving it a go and see for yourself. the new expansion will cut some of the old contents so now would be a good time to do that before they remove them.

They never got to delay their content while with Activision but they also had more resources and weren't separated from each other by the pandemic so it's a toss-up on whether or not this means a more quality expansion than before. This could be exactly what we got when they were with Activision and the delay is due to coronavirus, as they say or this could launch in better shape than anything since the Activision split and we'll believe the delay helped that happen. I will say that this particular season represents some of the most positivity I've had about their split from Activision, the game is still rife with problems but the way they're doing world storytelling and how they're handling a changing game world is just very impressive and not something you really got prior.
