Fancy hats are a staple of Destiny 2: Beyond Light and will be reworked in coming seasons


Last week Bungie posted a rather lengthy blog detailing forthcoming updated to Destiny 2. The big news is that Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, the next major expansion to the game, has been delayed from the end of 2021 to early 2022.

The company cites the challenging situation with remote game development through the pandemic as the chief cause of the delay, but the long term plan for Destiny 2 has also been extended. Having outlined three major narrative yearly expansion – Beyond Light, The Witch Queen and Lightfall – they have only now realised that they “need” to add an extra chapter after Lightfall to “fully complete” the first saga of Destiny.
