After a rumour that the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, The Final Shape, would be delayed by a few months, developer Bungie has now confirmed the delay. The DLC will now launch on 4 June 2024, moving out of its original 27 February release date. Thankfully it isn’t a massive delay as players will just need to wait a few more months.
Bungie issued a statement on X (formerly known as Twitter) confirming that The Final Shape has a new release date of 4 June 2024. However, the company also revealed a two-month content update called Destiny 2: Into the Light, which begins in April 2024. This will “prepare players for their Guardian’s journey into the Traveler” though no other information was provided.
Bungie’s development team wrote in a recent blog post:
“The Final Shape is the culmination of the first ten years of Destiny storytelling and, for Guardians everywhere, countless hours spent together. 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 team revealed that Season of the Wish, which officially kicks off this week, will run all the way up until the release of The Final Shape next year. “While the majority of content and narrative for Season of the Wish will run from late November to February as originally planned, the team is adding new content available for all players to jump into until the launch of The Final Shape,” wrote Bungie.
In related news, the player count for Destiny 2 recently hit an all-time low after players began jumping ship for a multitude of reasons. Bungie also forecasted a massive 47% drop in revenue for its current fiscal year while revealing that pre-orders for The Final Shape were lower than expected.
Destiny 2: The Final Shape has a new release date of 4 June 2024.
