Bungie is delaying the release of Destiny 2: New Light and the game’s standalone Shadowkeep expansion from the originally announced date of 17th September to 1st October.

Both games mark the first significant step for Bungie’s troubled franchise following the developer’s split from long-time publisher Activision in January. New Light will see the core Destiny 2 experience (including Year 1’s Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansions) become entirely free-to-play, while the moon-themed Shadowkeep is a completely standalone affair.

Announcing the release delay for both titles in a new post on the Destiny subreddit, Bungie’s Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy explained that, “As we get closer and closer to serving up Shadowkeep and New Light, it has become increasingly clear to us that our releases for this Fall would benefit from a bit more time in the oven.”
