Bungie dropped an enormous quantity of details about the way forward for Future 2 on its weblog, together with timing for upcoming content material releases and a brand new chapter coming after Lightfall.
Bungie has adjusted the timing on the following huge enlargement for Destiny 2, pushing it again from its earlier November launch date into subsequent 12 months. The Witch Queen, the following huge addition to Future 2 after Beyond Light, will now drop someday in “the early half of 2022.”
The change was outlined in an enormous put up on Bungie’s blog, which matches into a number of element outlining the way forward for Future 2. Bungie mentioned it had been enthusiastic about pushing again the discharge of The Witch Queen for some time “primarily for the well being of the group,” and that parts of the enlargement helped to push the choice for the delay.
“Past Mild constructed the muse and allowed us to weave the world-building of Future and Future 2 collectively, however The Witch Queen will mild the hearth on a strongly interconnected narrative throughout Lightfall and past, in contrast to something we’ve ever tried earlier than, with characters, arcs, heroes and villains that persist over a number of future releases,” Bungie wrote. “With a lot resulting in and depending on what occurs in The Witch Queen, we needed to be sure that we gave ourselves sufficient time to construct out this journey in the fitting means, beginning with an distinctive first chapter in The Witch Queen.”
Different causes for the delay embrace Bungie’s continued work to “improve the systemic basis of Future 2 to assist every thing we wish to do sooner or later” and its makes an attempt to keep up a high quality stage for Future 2 with out placing extreme strain on builders, particularly as they work at home throughout a pandemic.
The weblog outlined a complete lot of different data as nicely. Whereas Bungie beforehand introduced two further expansions for Future 2–The Witch Queen in 2022 and Lightfall to comply with, initially slated for Fall 2022 however presumably now in early 2023–the weblog mentions one other enlargement that can comply with Lightfall and conclude Future 2’s present story, which Bungie now calls the “Mild and Darkness Saga.” It appears like Future 2 will proceed on after the present story arcs are concluded, however we don’t know what the sport would possibly appear like after that time.
Bungie additionally lastly put a timer on the discharge of the Vault of Glass raid, which is being refreshed from its authentic launch in Future 1 and introduced into Future 2. The Vault of Glass is coming again in Season 14, which is Future 2’s subsequent content material season.
