Bungie made a big deal when they announced cross-progression for Destiny 2 but it apparently doesn't work for everything as the upcoming anniversary pack will not be transferrable between platforms.

Destiny 2  has a cross-progression system that allows players to pick the game up on one platform and then copy the progress in order to continue on a different one. As such, players can effectively enjoy Bungie's looter shooter on PC, Xbox and PlayStation family of devices without shelling out extra cash and putting in additional hours for the necessary grind.

The system doesn't work in all scenarios, however, and the upcoming 30th Anniversary Pack will only stay on the platform where it's purchased. This much was confirmed on the most recent TWAB that was released on November 24, 2021.

Bungie's sole explanation was that the Anniversary Pack will behave like a DLC, along the lines of Beyond Light and Shadowkeep, which is why it will require a purchase on any platform where you want to utilise it. There are numerous questions that this statement raises, like how does a handful of weapons and cosmetics compare to the size and scale of an entire expansion and what is the connection between the two that prevents cross-saving features from being utilised here.

On the flip side, players who use gameshare on consoles will find this to be great since DLC that works like the aforementioned expansions can be shared across multiple users.

Besides this info, there wasn't much on this week's TWAB besides Bungie's notice that the  30th anniversary is coming up in two weeks , which is probably the point where the TWABs will get meatier again.
