Blackburn recently commented on the expansion’s development Tweet, “We are in the last parts of [Witch Queen and Season 16] Evolution,” he said. “To the naked eye, the game has been around for a while, but it’s often the invisible work done by the people at the end of the pipe that makes sure it all comes together. “

It looks like the meat and potatoes of Destiny 2’s next expansion and season are functionally done, and Bungie is now polishing off the finer details as launch approaches. Bungie’s revised February 22, 2022 release date for The Witch Queen rests firmly in the ongoing (and greatly expanded) Season of the Lost, but given the state of the world and the fact that the expansion has received The biggest delay in Destiny 2’s history, it’s encouraging to hear that this extra time gave Bungie the breathing room it needed.


The news also bodes well for the shifted release schedule that Bungie plans to move forward, with the expansion now coming at the beginning of the year rather than in the fall. The Witch Queen was originally planned as the second expansion in a trilogy, starting with Beyond Light, but the saga has expanded to four parts, ending with The Final Shape in 2024, which Lightfall scheduled for 2023 will follow the extension.

Blackburn’s tweet comes after a new blog post outlining some Major Artifacts and Armor Lovers Coming to The Witch Queen, not to mention a small hint on how the expansion’s new weapon crafting system will work. The new expansion promotional train is gathering pace after just a month A report highlighting the damage caused by Bungie’s work culture, which was shared widely by Bungie employees and prompted an apology from the studio’s CEO Pete Parsons.
