It has been one crazy year for Bungie and the Destiny franchise. Earlier this year, Bungie split from publishing partner Activision and managed to retain the Destiny IP. After the split, Bungie promised to fix a host of long time complaints and concerns that the community had long been vocal about. Many fans were anticipating the expansion Shadowkeep, and some consumers who had been one the fence waiting for the free-to-play version of Destiny 2: New Light. Today, on the Destiny subreddit, the developers officially announced that both the Shadowkeep expansion and Destiny 2: New Light would be delayed until October 1st, 2019. While this is only a delay of a little over two weeks as the original release date was slighted for September 17th, 2019. In the blog post the developers cited “it has become increasingly clear to us that our releases for this Fall would benefit from a bit more time in the oven.”. This is clearly a case of Bungie just working out the growing pains of their independence and with the delay being such a small bump fans need not worry. With all the content promised with the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion, it will no doubt be worth it for long time fans of the series.
