Destiny 2 launched all the way back in 2017 but Bungie continues to support the looter-shooter. Earlier this year, the studio announced three exciting, new expansions that will be coming to Destiny 2 over the course of the coming years until 2022 — more on that here.
The first of these expansions is called Destiny 2: Beyond Light and, while originally set to launch in September, will now kick off on November 10th alongside the launch of the next-generation. If you aren't caught up, November 10th is the date that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S release — with the PlayStation 5 not far behind on November 13th.
Speaking of the next-generation consoles; Bungie also announced earlier this year that Destiny 2 will be coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at some point. What's more, you will be able to upgrade from current-gen to next-gen for free. Well, now we know exactly when Destiny 2 will be making the jump to the next-generation.
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game will boast 4K resolution, 60fps, faster load times, and the option to adjust your field-of-view — among other things. Destiny 2 optimised for the next-generation will launch for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (and S) on December 8th, 2020 (via @DestinyTheGame).
Other upcoming Destiny 2 expansions, those being The Witch Queen and Lightfall, which are set to launch in 2021 and 2022 will presumably come to both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Following the events of Season of Arrivals, in which multiple Pyramid ships began invading the Solar System, a new power is born out of the ancient Pyramid ship above Jupiter's icy moon Europa, and a dark empire has risen beneath, united under the banner of the Fallen Kell of Darkness, Eramis, the Shipstealer. The Exo Stranger, last seen at the end of the original Destiny's campaign, calls Eris Morn and the Drifter to the Jovian moon to investigate the ship. The Exo Stranger explains that she comes from a different timeline where the Darkness won. Just as she had provided aid to the Guardian against the Vex six years ago, she has returned to the present time to help prevent the Darkness from claiming victory and causing a second Collapse.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light launches on November 11th, 2020.
Destiny 2 launches on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X on December 8th, 2020.
