Destiny 2: The Final Shape Delay Confirmed by Bungie

Bungie Details Next Destiny 2 Expansion, New Seasonal Content

Bungie has officially announced a Destiny 2: The Final Shape delay, revealing that the expansion planned for February won’t be arriving until later in 2024.

In a recent tweet from the official Destiny 2 Twitter account, Bungie announced that The Final Shape would be delayed from its original release of February 27, 2024, until later in the year, with a new release date set for June 4, 2024. The reason for the delay, according to Bungie, is for the development to create “an even bigger and bolder vision” for the expansion.

“The Final Shape is the culmination of the first ten years of Destiny storytelling and, for Guardians everywhere, countless hours spent together,” the development team wrote in a blog post. “We want to honor that 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.”

The confirmation comes following reports from Bloomberg that Bungie would be delaying a litany of its work amidst its recent round of layoffs, which saw the company reduce its staff by nearly 10%.

Bungie outlines content plan through June 2024

In the meantime, Bungie will continue to work on content for the next seven months of Destiny 2. In a brief video from game director Joe Blackburn, the studio detailed what fans can expect in between now and the eventual release of The Final Shape.

Beginning next month, a new dungeon, Warlord’s Ruin, will be added into the game, and once the Season of the Wish story concludes in February, new weekly story events called “Wishes” will begin being added into the game.

Around April, according to Blackburn, Bungie will begin detailing what to expect from The Final Shape, and a new update called Destiny 2: Into the Light will also release, with content set to release over April and May that Blackburn says will include unique rewards for both hardcore and returning fans.

Finally, in May, Bungie will release a new map pack containing three maps into the game. The following month will then see The Final Shape release.
