Destiny 2 fans looking forward to the Shadowkeep expansion and New Light F2P launch will need to wait just a bit longer. Bungie has announced that the dev team needs a bit more time to make sure everything is spot on for launch. “Being independent means that the future of Destiny 2 is entirely on our team. It also means that we’re agile enough to choose to do what’s best for the game and our players, even if it’s the hard choice.” the on-site blog reads. As a result, Shadowkeep and New Light will be shifting release from September 17th to October 1st.
“We didn’t make this decision lightly. We know for some of you (us too), Destiny releases are events where you take time off of work or develop a sudden sickness that keeps you from school or work (we get it, a bunch of our team takes some time off to go on their own Destiny Jacket Quest). We’re sorry for screwing up your plans and we wanted to share this information as quickly as we could.”
Due to the delay, the World First race for the Garden of Salvation will begin on Saturday, October 5th.
The Moments of Triumph in-game event is also being extended through September 17th. This provides players with three additional weeks to complete all of the challenges in order to unlock all of the in-game and Bungie rewards.
Players will also be able to take part in an extra Iron Banner event during the week of September 17th. All the more goodies to earn!
Lastly, Cross Save, the ability to play characters no matter what system a player is using, will be coming later this summer.
