Destiny 2: Beyond Light DLC Expansion Delayed

Previous release date for Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion has been delayed because of COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier in June, developer/publisher Bungie revealed plans to add a new trilogy of expansions in Year 4 Season 2 content for free-to-play online multiplayer shooter Destiny 2 to start a new era and first one among them was Beyond Light.

Bungie originally planned to launch Beyond Light DLC expansion on September 22 and reveal more features very soon, which is now been delayed to November 10, 2020 due to working restrictions during ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Even though Bungie is one of the best studios to work remotely under current circumstances, they had to push back next chapter of Destiny 2 by a few more weeks just to meet certain quality standards because of recent challenges.

Beyond Light plans to include new gears, location, missions, raid, weaponry and everything that players expect from its next expansion, which will form the major upcoming D2 story arc alongside its follow-up The Witch Queen and Lightfall.

For a brief time, Destiny 2 is temporarily removing several activities and locations from game while taking away weekly reward cap on raids for rest of the season, allowing players to grind for best exotic loots as long as they are available.

Recent actions of Bungie are disappointing to some fans but are taken for a better future of D2 players in long run. Previous plans for rumored development of Destiny 3 have been scrapped and are replaced with new content update strategy.
