As a result of this delay, the Destiny 2 content roadmap is also undergoing changes. However, fans may find the alterations exciting. The current Season of the Wish, which started on November 28, will be supported by additional events and content, extending it until the release of The Final Shape in June. In February, players can expect weekly progression-based quests (called Wishes) and the return of the recurring event, Moments of Triumph, featuring various challenges to complete.
Furthermore, March 2024 will witness the early return of the Guardian Games for a new class vs. class contest, and in April, players can anticipate the launch of an all-new two-month content update called Into the Light. Though specifics about this update are scarce, Bungie has stated that it will “prepare players for their Guardian’s journey into the Traveler.”
Concluding the news post, Bungie expressed their understanding of the fans’ eagerness for The Final Shape and their enthusiasm for the additional time to bring their vision to life. More details, including new gameplay showcasing significant content additions, are set to be unveiled in April.
Notably, this announcement comes shortly after Bungie’s revelation of staff layoffs. Bungie CEO and chairman Pete Parsons described those affected by the redundancies as “truly talented people.”
