Destiny 2: The Witch Queen and its release date will be fully revealed next month, which is great considering Season of the Splicer is driving me absolutely crazy for the rest of the story. With Osiris be suspicious as anything and Lakshmi being … well, Lakshmi, things in the Last City are far from calm and with the plague invading the Tower? It is far from over. We are preparing to lead the fight in Savathum, it seems. But are we really?
Bungie took to Destiny 2’s Twitter account to announce when fans can get their first glimpse of the upcoming expansion, with the continuation of the current story being told in Beyond Light. The storefront is slated to go live on August 24, with our first look at the set’s artwork below:
With previous concept art shared with the community completely convinced that we are going to Old Chicago, what’s next for the space shooter is to guess. We know that Savathun assumed the identity of a person in the last city, but we don’t know explicitly who again. I still have my suspicions. Mark this, dear reader, and place your bets as I will eat all kinds of hats if I am wrong, but I think we will find out that Osiris is actually Savathun. What that might mean for the story (if I’m right) and what role the Guardian will have in conjunction with the Witch Queen is up to the guesswork, but homeboy is acting way too well known to be ignored.
While we wait for the Witch Queen showcase, Bungie has gone into more detail on what we can expect from the next expansion when the studio ad that the DLC has been delayed:
The Witch Queen represents a significant development in the ongoing story of Destiny 2. Beyond Light laid the groundwork and allowed us to weave together the building of the world of Destiny and Destiny 2, but The Witch Queen will kindle fire on a narrative. strongly interconnected across Lightfall and beyond unlike anything we’ve ever attempted before, with characters, arcs, heroes, and villains lingering in multiple future releases. More importantly, the conclusion of these builds will also conclude the “Saga of Light and Dark,” the conflict we first introduced with the launch of Destiny many years ago. As we developed The Witch Queen, we realized that we needed this release to be the first of many pivotal moments in Destiny history. With so much leading up to and depending on what happens in The Witch Queen, we wanted to make sure we gave ourselves enough time to build this journey the right way, starting with a great first chapter.
We don’t have an exact time yet, but it will get closer to the event itself, but you can add to your calendar “See what’s happening in Destiny” for the date of August 24th.
You have heard my theories, let me hear yours! Where do you think the Witch Queen will take us in Destiny 2? Who do you think Savathun is posing as? Express yourself with your thoughts in the comments section below. the crow want you.
