Destiny 2’s summer and fall is shrouded in mystery
According to Bungie, players will learn about season 11 of Destiny 2 “at the same time that we talk about the next chapter in the story that has been unfolding all year long.” While cryptic, this likely means Bungie will announce Destiny 2’s fall expansion alongside details of the currently unnamed season 11.
With season 11 launching on June 9 (there’s a countdown in-game) — and Bungie’s habit of revealing a season before it’s actually out — there’s a short window of time when this livestream could take place. Toward the middle of the blog, production director Justin Truman mentions that Bungie will share what its been working on with players in 12 days … June 9.
This suggests the reveal event could be the day the season launches, or Truman could just be referring to players getting their hands on the new season. Either way, this early-June timeline fits with Bungie’s usual announce time for Destiny 2’s fall expansion — like Forsaken’s reveal on June 5, 2018, and Shadowkeep’s on June 6, 2019.
Players currently have no idea what Bungie has in store. The studio does hint that the Darkness — an enemy players have waited seven years to face — is in our solar system, via some ominous blinking lights on Season of the Worthy’s Seraph Bunker walls. Based on their proximity to several playable areas in Destiny, it seems players could finally encounter the foes in season 11 or the fall expansion.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bungie will reveal the game’s new content over the internet, rather than an in-studio livestream. It’s unclear if players will get the studio’s usual “ViDoc” video documentaries, showcasing developers and gameplay, as the pandemic has forced developers to work from home.
We’ll update this post when Bungie narrows the window for its fall reveal, and announces a date and time.
