Bungie has announced that they are pushing the release of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep out a couple more weeks to give it a bit of more work.
The expansion was supposed to release on September 17 but will now release two weeks later on October 1. Destiny 2: New Light, the free-to-play version, will also release on that same day. Cross-Save will be coming to the game very soon though so you’ll be able to play with that until Shadowkeep releases. The Moments of Triumph will also be extended three more weeks so you now have until September 17 to complete them.
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.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.We wanted to let you—our Community—know first that we’re changing the date for Shadowkeep and New Light from September 17 to October 1.This Fall is the first step on a journey for what our team wants Destiny 2 to become – a place for you and your friends to play anytime, anywhere; owning the action MMO and RPG elements that we love about the game; and crushing barriers to entry for friends. We just need a bit of extra time to take the first step.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.
