Destiny 2 assistant director Joe Blackburn officially confirmed that the next extension published for Action-MMO will be delayed until 2022. According to Blackburn, The Witch Queen was delayed to properly expand the full arc of Post-launch content of Destiny 2, and release the extension too early could compromise an unexpected Lightfall chapter, and therefore have an impact on the arch of history itself. Destiny 2 is available now for Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC.
“Last summer, we exhibited our ambition for the next era of Destiny 2 by announcing the full arc, starting with Beyond Light, followed by The Witch Queen and Lightfall,” said Joe Blackburn. “While we started to put the production of The Witch Queen on scale last year, we made the decision difficult but important to move its release in early 2022; We also realized that we had to add an additional unexpected chapter after Lightfall to fully finish our first saga of Destiny.
“Our ultimate vision for Destiny 2 still holds; A final action MMO, a unified global community where you can play Destiny anywhere with your friends, “continued Joe Blackburn. “For 2021, this means improving our approach to keep the game of up -to -date weapons and armor, refine our vision of the PVP, implement the transmogrification and add the crossplay.” Although this delay can upset certain fans of Destiny 2, it will probably lead to more updated content for all players rather than those who buy an extension.
