Bungie announces a move from September to November.
Destiny 2: Beyond Light

Just this past June, Bungie was all about promoting their next couple of years worth of content for Destiny 2. Today, they have already postponed part of those plans. Specifically, Bungie has delayed the release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light, their next major upcoming expansion that was originally slated to be released on September 22, 2020.

Now, Bungie has delayed that release date by almost two months to November 10, 2020. This places the release of Beyond Light right in that "prime" release window for new games. This includes Cyberpunk 2077 on November 19, Assassin's Creed Valhalla on November 17, and presumably the release of the next-gen Xbox and PlayStation around that time with the release of whatever next-gen launch titles will be available.

Here is what Bungie had to say about today's delay announcement:

We have made the decision to move the release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light to November 10.

As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2. We have a powerful story to tell and incredible new features that we're really excited for players to experience. As always, our goal is to make the coolest, most entertaining expansion we can possibly make for our fans. To that end, we are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date.

The past few months have been a challenge and will continue to be during this pandemic. We’ve learned to create together in a new way, by having to work apart from one another. Despite these hurdles, we’re still committed to the same level of quality that our fans expect.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling more of what we’re working on for Beyond Light and what that also means for Season of Arrivals, which will now extend to November 10. Beyond Light sets the stage for an incredible future in Destiny 2 and, though it’s coming later than we originally anticipated, we’re excited to continue that journey with you this November.
As a result of this lengthy delay, Bungie is extending most of the content of the current season. This means added weeks to earn your Moments of Triumph for 2020. That has been extended until November 10th. In addition, the Festival of the Lost (in-game Halloween event) will take place during the current Season of Arrivals. That event begins on October 6 this year. They are also planning on some activity modifiers that will bring:
  • Increased Valor
  • Increased Infamy
  • Increased [REDACTED]
  • A few additional Iron Banner events between September and November.
Bungie also promises that there will be some added surprises that they hope "will keep your hunger satiated" ahead of Beyond Light's launch. They urge fans to stay tuned.
