Destiny 2: The Final Shape Delayed to June

Bungie announced that it has delayed the release of Destiny 2’s The Final Shape expansion. Planned to release in February 2024, the expansion will now launch for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on June 4, 2024. The developer provided the following message regarding the expansion and its content plans in the intervening time.

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.

Naturally, this change brings up questions about our upcoming release calendar. Season of the Wish begins tomorrow [editor’s note — is available now] and will extend until the launch of The Final Shape in June. 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.

In February, this will include new weekly progression-based quests called Wishes, and the launch of Moments of Triumph with unique rewards. Next, we’re moving Guardian Games up to March with a refreshed focus on class vs. class competition. Then, beginning in April, we’re delivering a two-month content update available to everyone called Destiny 2: Into the Light, which will prepare players for their Guardian’s journey into the Traveler. All of this is in addition to the ongoing efforts from our PvP Strike Team, including three new PvP maps dropping in May.

We know you’re eager to get your hands on The Final Shape. In that sense, delays aren’t fun. For our part, we are excited to have the extra time needed to bring our vision for The Final Shape to life for all of you. We’re looking forward to sharing much more in April, including all-new gameplay, to showcase the significant content additions currently in development.

Thanks for reading and for being on this journey with us.

The Final Shape sees players take on their main antagonist the Witness alongside companions Ikora Rey, Commander Zavala, and the mysteriously returned Cayde-6. The campaign takes players into the heart of the Traveler in a new location called the Pale Heart and will culminate in a new raid. The Pale Heart is said to be shaped by both the Witness and the Guardians and will feature callbacks to previous events and locations, including a version of Destiny’s original Tower.
