The rumors were true and Destiny 2 The Final Shape has been delayed from February until June 2, 2024.
Bungie made the announcement Monday morning via a blog post on the studio’s website.
“The Final Shape is the culmination of the first ten years of Destiny storytelling and, for Guardians everywhere, countless hours spent together,” Bungie said. “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.”
With the delay, Bungie says that “adding new content available for all players to jump into until the launch of The Final Shape”.
This content will begin in February, the original month for The Final Shape’s release, and will feature new “weekly progression-based quests” known as Wishes as well as the launch of Moments of Triumph.
In March, players will get Guardian Games with a focus on class vs class battles. Lastly, April will see 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.”
“We know you’re eager to get your hands on The Final Shape,” Bungie said. “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.”
