The developer of Destiny 2, Sony-owned Bungie, has officially announced that the upcoming expansion for the game, The Final Shape, will not be making its scheduled release date. Initially planned for February 27, Destiny 2 The Final Shape has been delayed to June 4, 2024. The Final Shape is not a simple DLC, the massive expansion is the culmination of the 10-year life of Destiny 2 and the original Destiny as well.
We want to honor this journey, so we’re taking the time we need to deliver an even bigger and bolder vision, one that we hope will be remembered and treasured for years to come
And instead of leaving a hole because of the delay, Destiny 2 Season of the Wish will keep going until the release of The Final Shape on June 4. This will make it the longest-running season since the beginning of the series. But most of the story-related beats will be covered by the end of February. Fortunately, Bungie has plans to hold players off for another few months.
More Destiny 2 Content Until The Release of The Last Shape
February will bring the launch of weekly quests called Wishes, along with Moments of Triumph in Season of the Wish. These quests will reward players who participate in them. Furthermore, the yearly Guardian Games event has been moved to March.
After that, Destiny 2 Into the Light will come out in April, and the content update will be followed up by May’s new PvP maps. So even though The Last Shape is being delayed, players will likely have enough content to hold them off until June.
This delay comes right after the mass layoff at Bungie that took place a few weeks ago. According to sources, around 8% of the total staff was relieved from duty. Bungie was one of the many studios that have gone through massive staff cuts during the course of 2023.
