Bungie decided to postpone Destiny 2's next expansion to November 10, 2020, making the wait longer by roughly a month and a half. Considering the working circumstances, it seems to be for the best.
Destiny 2's next expansion, Beyond Light was originally slated for a release on September 22, 2020. With the decision to move it up by about a month and a half , Bungie pushed the release into a highly contented time slot where the expansion, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077 will all release in the span of just nine days.
What this means for the sales of Beyond Light remains to be seen since that's the latest of the three releases to get a November launch date. Then again, if someone was practising a certain unhealthy custom of not releasing little swimmers into the wild for the duration of that particular month, it just got a whole lot easier with all the content to play through.
Anyway, this means that Season of Arrivals will be longer than expected, going on for about five months. This is good for those who were unsure about getting the season pass at this stage or even bothering to masterwork the new armour pieces but it also brings a spell of uncertainty over what the game will feel like in the period leading up to the expansion.
The main concern is that Destiny 2 will start feeling stale with the lack of new content, which is probably why Bungie decided to release an earlier TWAB this week, where they will talk about the game's near future.
While it may sound odd, yours truly is just hoping that Hawkmoon is not entirely tied to the expansion and actually makes it into Destiny 2 sooner. Such menial concerns probably come with being a hand cannon addict.
