Destiny 2 The Witch Queen Expansion Set Back To 2022
Destiny 2 The Witch Queen Expansion Set Back To 2022.
Bungie has just recently declared their decision to delay the Destiny 2 The Witch Queen expansion to 2022 in a new post on the studio’s official site. The Witch Queen was initially scheduled for launch later this year but has been delayed due to the logistical difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“With COVID-19 keeping us away from the office, and a large amount of work on our plates, we needed to move the date to make sure that both this year’s updates and The Witch Queen were both delivered at the quality we strive for and on a schedule that made sense for everyone involved,” said Assistant Game Director Joe Blackburn.
Blackburn also stated The Witch Queen’s significance to the Destiny 2 narrative and how it will play a vital part in the game’s storyline by further spanning the Destiny and Destiny 2 storylines. The team began the interwoven story arc with Beyond Light’s launch in November 2020, which featured a well-known figure from the original Destiny campaign, the Exo Stranger.
“The Witch Queen represents an important evolution in the ongoing story of Destiny 2,” he said. “Beyond Light built the foundation and allowed us to weave the world-building of Destiny and Destiny 2 together, but The Witch Queen will light the fire on a strongly interconnected narrative across Lightfall and beyond, unlike anything we’ve ever attempted before, with characters, arcs, heroes and villains that persist over multiple future releases.”
Blackburn further teased the ensuing expansion to Lightfall, which he says will end the first Destiny saga.
Meanwhile, the Season of the Chosen rewards and content has now been added to the game, providing players a new set of seasonal challenges to finish before the season ends on May 11. For more details about the Season of the Chosen, take a look at the video down below
