Bungie finally admits it’s delaying Destiny 2’s The Final Shape to June 4

But it's adding more prequel events and content to Season of the Wish to compensate


Confirming what leaks and rumors and layoffs a month ago had already implied, Bungie announced this afternoon that it’s delaying Destiny 2’s The Final Shape to June – June 4th, to be exact. The company says while “delays aren’t fun,” this one will “allow for an even bigger and bolder vision,” which frankly the game needs.

“The Final Shape is the culmination of the first ten years of Destiny storytelling and, for Guardians everywhere, countless hours spent together. We want to honor that journey, so we’re taking the time we need to deliver an even bigger and bolder vision, one that we hope will be remembered and treasured for years to come,” the studio says. The move also means that Season of the Wish, which launches tomorrow, will run more than six months, leading into the expansion, though the team is adding more content to it along the way.

“Naturally, this change brings up questions about our upcoming release calendar. Season of the Wish begins tomorrow and will extend until the launch of The Final Shape in June. While the majority of content and narrative for Season of the Wish will run from late November to February as originally planned, the team is adding new content available for all players to jump into until the launch of The Final Shape. In February, this will include new weekly progression-based quests called Wishes, and the launch of Moments of Triumph with unique rewards. Next, we’re moving Guardian Games up to March with a refreshed focus on class vs. class competition. Then, beginning in April, we’re delivering a two-month content update available to everyone called Destiny 2: Into the Light, which will prepare players for their Guardian’s journey into the Traveler. All of this is in addition to the ongoing efforts from our PvP Strike Team, including three new PvP maps dropping in May.”

Bungie is promising to share more info in April.
