Destiny 2 changes Iron Banner date

Iron Banana will be played out at a different time but rest easy - there is no expiration date. It may be a banana but it's still forged by Saladin.

Bungie announced they would be shuffling some of the Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner dates due to a bug that has been present since the launch of Nightfall.

Players who persistently played a single playlist would eventually run into invisible Guardians, which is unnerving but not much of an issue in Strikes, for example, but it would be detrimental in PvP.

It is for this reason that the inaugural Iron Banner of Destiny 2 : Lightfall will kick off on March 21, 2023, meaning it was pushed back one week.

Sure, it sounds like a bit of a mess for the players but the fix for the bug is scheduled for March 16 so if it weren't moved, the Iron Banner would have two days of invisible Guardians wreaking havoc on anyone trying to play it in a normal way.

This also means there will only be one week break between the first two Iron Banners of the season as the second week is starting on April 4, 2023.

Similarly, the first Trials of Osiris has been moved to March 17, 2023, so the pinnacle of Destiny 2 PvP doesn't get tarnished by the invisible bug and only remains a cesspool for regular reasons.

More Iron Banner info is coming with the next TWAB, scheduled for March 16, when the bug gets fixed.
