Destiny 2: Beyond Light Expansion Delayed By Bungie
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has set its sight on yet another target in the gaming industry, with the victim this time around being the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, Beyond Light. The folks over at Bungie have announced today that the highly anticipated expansion is being delayed until November 10, pushed back almost two full months from its original release date of September 22.
Bungie took to its official website to make the announcement, citing the ongoing pandemic as at least part of the reason behind the delay. “As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2,” the post begins. 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.”
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.”
There is a bit of good news to be had from all this, though, as those looking forward to the Season of Arrivals will have more time to enjoy the content, as it is being extended to November 10 to match the release date of the expansion. “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.”
Destiny 2: Beyond Light is now slated to release on November 10, 2020.
