Bungie has delayed the long-awaited expansion for Destiny 2 from its original September 22nd release date to November 10th.
Citing the COVID-19 pandemic and the desire to deliver the quality fans expect, Bungie says that “Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2. We have a powerful story to tell and incredible new features that we’re really excited for players to experience. As always, our goal is to make the coolest, most entertaining expansion we can possibly make for our fans. To that end, we are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date.”
Bungie also mentions that more information about the expansion will be unveiled “over the coming weeks.” Because of the delay, the current season, Season of Arrivals is being extended to November 10th.
Beyond Light was announced along with upcoming expansions The Witch Queen and Lightfall, which will be releasing in 2021 and 2022 respectively, in a livestream last month.
Destiny 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (Steam), and Stadia, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions releasing later this year. As mentioned in their original announcement, all purchases of Destiny 2: Beyond Light will transfer to next-generation consoles for free.
