Remember about five weeks ago when Bungie announced that it was working on three additional expansions for Destiny 2, the first of which would be Beyond Light, launching September 22nd? Yeah, so that’s not happening quite to plan. Bungie announced today that it’s delaying Beyond Light to November 10th, largely because of COVID-related remote work challenges.
“[W]e are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date,” the studio says. “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.”
Beyond Light is expected to send players to Europa, equipped with a new elemental power called Stasis, in the service of a new storyline and raid.
