Destiny 2: The Final Shape Expansion Delayed Until 2024
The world of online gaming took a hit earlier this week when Bungie announced the long-anticipated Destiny 2: The Final Shape expansion would be pushed back until 2024. The news has been met with a mix of reactions from fans of the franchise, as the game had been greatly anticipated since its announcement in 2019.
The delay comes due to complications caused by Covid-19 and the huge effort required to develop a game of this scope, according to the company. “We understand how frustrating it can be for players waiting for new content, and this delay is a necessary step to make sure we meet the level of quality we know our players expect of us,” said a Bungie representative.
The expansion will focus on a new story arc and will include updated graphics as well as two new planets. It will also offer a host of new weapons, armor, and other game modes. While the game has had a strong player base since its launch, the delay has left some players worried that they won’t be able to experience all the content in time, considering it won’t be released until 2024.
Other players, however, are understanding and optimistic about the new expansion. Some view the extra time as an opportunity for Bungie to make sure they create an amazing and memorable expansion.
Bungie has not provided any specific release date yet, but the company said the development team is working hard to make sure Destiny 2: The Final Shape is worth the wait.
