[Update]: Destiny 2's The Witch Queen expansion has arrived alongside a new story campaign and weapon crafting.

If you were looking forward to Destiny 2's upcoming Beyond Light expansion, I'm afraid I bring some bad news. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Beyond Light's release date has been pushed back from September 22nd to November 10th.

"As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2," reads the developer update. "We have a powerful story to tell and incredible new features that we're really excited for players to experience. As always, our goal is to make the coolest, most entertaining expansion we can possibly make for our fans. To that end, we are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date."

"Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling more of what we’re working on for Beyond Light and what that also means for Season of Arrivals, which will now extend to November 10. Beyond Light sets the stage for an incredible future in Destiny 2 and, though it’s coming later than we originally anticipated, we’re excited to continue that journey with you this November."

While these types of delays are unfortunate, they are also more than understandable given the circumstances. That said, I can only hope the extra time will help the Destiny 2 team avoid the usual avalanche of bugs that seem to be all-too common with games released throughout this pandemic.

Whatever the case may be, you can read the full announcement, as well as learn more about Beyond Light, over at the official website. And just for good measure, I'll leave you with one of the recent gameplay trailers. Enjoy!
