Bungie Confirms Destiny 2 DLC Delay

Destiny 2 DLC "The Final Shape" has been officially delayed by Bungie, citing the need to deliver a more extensive and ambitious vision for the game's conclusion.

The PS5 and PS4 expansion, originally scheduled for an earlier date, is now set to launch on June 4th, 2024.

Bungie's decision to delay the DLC comes in the wake of significant layoffs at the company, with approximately 100 employees losing their jobs due to a 45% decline in revenue.

To compensate for the delay, the ongoing Season of the Wish will be extended until the release of "The Final Shape," offering additional content during the extended period.

Starting in February, players can engage in new weekly quests called Wishes, complemented by Moments of Triumph, providing additional activities leading up to the DLC launch.

Guardian Games, originally scheduled for a later date, has been moved up to March, with a renewed emphasis on class vs. class competition.

April marks the beginning of "Destiny 2: Into the Light," a two-month-long content update designed to prepare players for their Guardian's journey into the Traveler.

In May, players can expect the introduction of three new PvP maps as part of the ongoing content updates.

Bungie plans to release more news and footage of "The Final Shape" in April 2024, promising "significant content additions" to the game.

The developer's decision to delay the DLC follows a challenging period, with reports indicating a 45% decline in revenue and player dissatisfaction, leading to demands for refunds from some dedicated fans.
