Destiny 2 players looking forward to the rollout of Destiny 2 New Light and Destiny 2 Shadowkeep content Next month on September 17th, 2019 will be disappointed to learn that Bungie has pushed back its release a couple of weeks until October 1st 2019.
Destiny 2: Shadowkeep does not require ownership of any previous Destiny 2 expansions to purchase or play and will bring new Missions and Quests, new Destination & Dungeon, new Weapons and Gear to Earn, all new Raid, Season Pass for Season of the Undying and more.
Bungie explains a little more about what’s behind the delay of the Destiny 2 New Light and Destiny 2 Shadowkeep content.
“As we get closer and closer to serving up Shadowkeep and New Light, it has become increasingly clear to us that our releases for this Fall would benefit from a bit more time in the oven,” Bungie writes. “Being independent means that the future of Destiny 2 is entirely on our team. It also means that we’re agile enough to choose to do what’s best for the game and our players, even if it’s the hard choice.”
The studio added, “We didn’t make this decision lightly. We know for some of you (us too), Destiny releases are events where you take time off of work or develop a sudden sickness that keeps you from school or work (we get it, a bunch of our team takes some time off to go on their own Destiny Jacket Quest). We’re sorry for screwing up your plans and we wanted to share this information as quickly as we could.”
