That something is the Fallen S.A.B.E.R strike that was due to return from the original game as part of two returning strikes (alongside this week's Nightfall, Devil's Lair).

Destiny 2 Fallen SABER Strike Removed Due To Bug, Bungie Walks Back Cosmodrome Promise

According to a Tweet from Bungie's Help account, the decision was taken to remove the mission due to a progression issue.

Due to an issue where players could become blocked during the Fallen S.A.B.E.R. strike, it is currently unavailable.We’ve identified the issue, and are currently developing a fix.We will provide updates when more information is available.

That's not the only returning content that's hit a bit of a snag, though.

Despite promises that the Cosmodrome location would be cycled into the game almost entirely, it appears Bungie may have overpromised.

Here's what the team said in its latest blog post:

"As we approached Beyond Light’s launch, it became clear to us that we had a choice to make: After returning all three of its original strikes, do we invest more time and resources in bringing Cosmodrome to D1 parity or do we switch our focus to building new experiences for Year 4 and beyond?"

"Given that we believed we had achieved our original goals and knowing the community and team’s desire for new content, we chose the latter option. But, when we made that decision, we failed to properly update your expectations for how far the Cosmodrome experience was going to be extended and that was a mistake."

"So, to clear things up: With the Devil’s Lair and Fallen S.A.B.E.R. strikes returning, we don’t have any active plans to add more to the Cosmodrome than what is there will be focusing on new updates overall."
