The next major expansion for Destiny 2, The Witch Queen, has been delayed to 2022.

Developer Bungie says this in a new blog post that it posted online last night. The Witch Queen was announced last summer and should have been released this year.

“As we scaled up production of The Witch Queen, we made the difficult but important decision to delay it to early 2022. We realized we also need to launch an unannounced chapter after Lightfall to finish our first saga of Destiny to round. ” An important part of the choice, according to Bungie, is “the health of our development team”.

In the rest of the blog, Bungie emphasizes that the company wants to make Destiny 2 the definitive action mmo this year, and so it should keep adding elements like weapons and armor to keep the experience exciting. The addition of cross-play is also an important element.
