Destiny 2: The Witch Queen was supposed to be the fall expansion for Destiny. Since its release, Destiny 2, has got big expansions every year. But this year, 2021, the scenario is a bit different. Here’s all you need to know about Destiny 2: The Witch Queen!
Release Date Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

The Witch Queen was scheduled to be launched in the second half of this year. But unfortunately, it will be delayed until 2022 due to the working issues caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Work from home has proved to be a barrier for the launch of The Witch Queen.
Here is what Bungie announced today in its official page:
“Last summer, we outlined our ambition for the next era in Destiny 2 by announcing the full arc, starting with Beyond Light, followed by the Witch Queen and Lightfall. As we began to scale production on the Witch Queen last year, we made the difficult but important decision to move its release to early 2022; we also realized we needed to add an additional unannounced chapter after Lightfall to fully complete our first saga of Destiny”.
“We’ve long thought about moving Destiny’s annual release to the early half of the year primarily for the health of the team, but the Witch Queen and not being tied to legacy expectations allowed us to make this choice”.
“The most important reason, we are proud to be uncompromising when it comes to our commitment to the health of our teams. With COVID-19 keeping us away from the office, and the large amount of work on our plates, we needed to move the date in order to make sure that both this year’s updates and The Witch Queen were both delivered at the quality we strive for, and on a schedule that made sense for everyone involved”.
The statement made by Blackburn made it very clear that The Witch Queen will not be launched anywhere around 2021. Fans have to wait for another year to get their hands on the latest expansion of Destiny 2.
Updates about The Witch Queen:
Another clarity that we have got from this official statement is that there will be a fourth expansion past Lightfall (will be launched somewhere around 2024). And there might be a second Destiny 2 saga sometime after that.
