Publisher Bungie has just announced the next three expansions for their MMO first-person shooter Destiny 2. The company has also provided a roadmap for their plans regarding Destiny 2 and its future.

In a post on, the company enumerated what the players of their PvP/ PvE hit should expect, content wise. Starting off, Destiny 2: Beyond Light will immerse players in a new destination: Jupiter’s frozen moon of Europa. Players will be able to brave the icy frontier, discover the Golden Age Braytech facility, and uncover the secrets that lie beneath its icy terrain. Beyond Light will also see the introduction of a new elemental power that Guardians will be able to harness – Stasis. I would assume that in keeping up with the expansion’s theme, this will involve ice alongside the current Arc, Solar, and Void elements. A new Raid has also been added in Europa’s Deep Stone Crypt. Story wise, Beyond Light will introduce Eramis as the game’s next villain.

As for the next expansions, no information has been released yet, but their names are already revealed: Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is set to release in 2021 and Destiny 2: Lightfall in 2022.

The post also elaborated on the unprecedented growth of Destiny 2, stating that the game’s content has become so vast that it is no longer sustainable to keep it going. Patch sizes in relation to the content’s player engagement have been stated as one of the reasons for the move to create a “Destiny Content Vault”. Its predecessor, Destiny, had also experienced the same problems of rapid expansion, which was resolved with Destiny 2. However, Bungie stated in the post that they “believe now that it was a mistake to create a situation that fractured the community, reset player progress, and set the player experience back in ways that took us a full year to recover from and repair.”

From this, they have confirmed that they will not be making another sequel to resolve the issue, but instead implement the DCV (Destiny Content Vault) which will rotate old and existing content to make way for new experiences. A complete preview of what players should expect can be read here. It details missions, raids, and more content that will no longer be available or become playable. This update will start on September 22.
