One of Bungie’s reasons for the delay is giving the new expansion more time cooking. Though I feel their original release date of September 17th was just too close to the release of the returning loot and shooter Borderlands 3 launching September 13th. Not to mention all the other releases planned for September, the month is so packed I’m surprised anyone can breath. October on the other hand is a little lighter on big releases and a new Destiny expansion sounds like the perfect thing to kick off the month.
The announcement also came with some more details for dates. The new raid Garden of Salvation will launch on Saturday October 5th and Contest will be on. Moments of Triumph is being extended through to September 17th. Giving you a bit more time to get your Moments of Triumph shirt for this year. The week of September 17th also sees Iron Banner returning. This will be your final chance to finish off the armor quest and get yourself a swam of the raven.
Sadly with these new added dates comes no extension to the Solstice of Heroes event currently underway. I’d personally have liked to get some more time to grind out my Solstice armor. I’m sure I’ll be busy enough with all the other games piling up it won’t even matter.
For all your Destiny news your in the right place as we move into Shadowkeep.
