Destiny 2 Since its release, it has been greatly expanded every year, but it will be different in 2021.Bunge Announced today The witch queen Originally planned to be launched in the second half of this year, Due to its size and continuing problems caused by working from home during the covid-19 pandemic, the data will be postponed to 2022.
The studio wrote: “When we started to expand the production of Witch Queen last year, we made the difficult and important decision to postpone its release date to early 2022.”[W]e also realized that we need to add an extra unannounced chapter after Lightfall to fully complete our first legend fate. ”
In addition to making fun of this extra “chapter” between Witch queen with LightlyIt is speculated that it will now be postponed to 2023. Bungie Assistant Game Director Joe Blackburn (Joe Blackburn) explored the reasons for the delay in more detail:
- The Witch Queen represents an important evolution of Destiny 2 in progress. Transcendence lays the foundation for us to weave together the world architecture of Destiny and Destiny 2, but the Witch Queen will light a flame in a closely connected narrative as we have never tried before, Lightfall and others. Characters, arcs, heroes and villains will continue to exist in multiple releases in the future. More importantly, the conclusion of these releases will also end the “Legend of Light and Darkness”, which was the first conflict we introduced when we released Destiny many years ago. During the development of The Witch Queen, we realized that we needed this version to be the first of many moments that are crucial to the story of destiny. Since there is so much leadership and it depends on what happens in “The Witch Queen”, we want to make sure that we give ourselves enough time to complete this journey in the right way, starting with the first chapter of “The Witch Queen.”
- With Destiny now committed to becoming an evolving world, we want to make sure that we are still taking time to upgrade Destiny 2’s system base to support everything we do in the future. Our ultimate vision for “Destiny 2” still exists-the final action MMO, a unified global community where you can play “Destiny” with your friends anywhere. In 2021, this means upgrading our approach to keep Destiny’s weapon and armor games fresh, perfecting our vision for PVP, implementing transmog, and adding Crossplay. More below.
- Finally, and the most important reason, we are proud of our uncompromising commitment to our team’s health. Since COVID-19 keeps us away from the office and requires a lot of work, we need to move the date to ensure that this year’s updated content and “Queen of Witch” are provided with the quality we pursue, and in accordance with what is meaningful to each participant Timetable.
basically, Witch queen Sounds like it can kick fateSince the release of the first game, its story has experienced incredibly slow burning, turned into speeding, and Bunge needs more time to handle it properly and lay the foundation correctly.
in tradition, fate The expansion was launched in September.last year Beyond the light It was the first to slip, but arrived in November. This is the first expansion provided by the studio after it broke up with Activision. With the announcement of these latest delays, it seems that the original predictable release cadence of the series will be replaced by a more realistic approach, “it will be eliminated when it is finished.”
At the same time, Bungie focused on improving many content in the game. Including its recently added and criticized sunset system Therefore, new trophies will be given an annual validity period.
