What you need to know

  • Destiny 2: Beyond Light is an upcoming expansion for the base game.
  • It was supposed to launch on September 22.
  • Now it's coming on November 10.
  • The current season, Season of Arrivals, has been extended too.

Recently, Bungie released the "Season of Arrivals" for Destiny 2. During the livestream, the team also discussed upcoming content like future expansions until 2022 and how the game will just be called Destiny going forward. The first expansion that was supposed to drop on September 22is called Beyond Light. It adds a new Europa region and a new threat.

Unfortunately, Bungie just announced that the content has been pushed back to November 10 to polish it up. The pandemic is causing delays because working from home presents its own challenges when it comes to collaboration and game development. You can read the post that appeared on Twitter below.

We have made the decision to move the release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light to November 10. As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, 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. 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. Over the coming weeks, we'll be unveiling more of what we're working on for Beyond Light and what that also means for Season of Arrivals, which will now extend to November 10. 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.

You can preorder the expansion for $40 on the Microsoft Store. You'll have to wait to access a lot of the content, but you'll get some cool cosmetic items immediately if you preorder.
