I think Bungie might be ready to give a TED Talk on how to piss off your fanbase. You all released a subpar expansion in Lightfall. Letting employees go didn’t help. Surely, you have all you need for that presentation.
What’s this? I stand corrected.
Bungie announced on Monday that their last expansion for Destiny 2 has been pushed back to June 4th, 2024. Whispers were going on in the background saying that it may be delayed because nobody liked Lightfall and dropped off Destiny 2 entirely.
Because of that poor reception, Bungie laid off 8 percent of their staff. Those layoffs were tied to community management and social media, engineering, and QA. So, as expected with less people working, it may take a bit longer to finish what a bigger team had started.
Little has been shown about The Final Shape. It has been billed as the expansion to conclude the “light and dark saga” which will see players enter The Traveler.
The Final Shape is the culmination of the first ten years of Destiny storytelling and, for Guardians everywhere, countless hours spent together. We want to honor that journey, so we’re taking the time we need to deliver an even bigger and bolder vision, one that we hope will be remembered and treasured for years to come.”
