Destiny 2 is reaching the culmination of what Bungie calls the Light and Darkness Saga with The Final Shape, the expansion scheduled to release in 2024.

Naturally, only a few details are known about the Final Shape, especially considering we're still early on in Year 6's existence; that started with Lightfall and is continuing with Season of the Deep and all the changes it brought to Destiny 2, including new exotic weapons to chase.

Still, Bungie surprised fans at the May 24th PlayStation Showcase with not only a look at the revival of Marathon, their iconic franchise that preceded even Halo's creation, but also a shocking teaser of The Final Shape, which included the return of beloved character Cayde-6.

So, with all that hype building, let's compile everything we know about Destiny 2's upcoming expansion, The Final Shape.

The Final Shape is closer...

We don't have an exact timeframe for when The Final Shape is expected to release. We know that barring massive delays that disrupt Bungie's entire development cycle, it's coming in 2024.

Whether that's early in the year or during the final months remains to be seen, the last time an expansion was delayed happened when The Witch Queen was pushed from a late 2021 release to February 2022.

Destiny 2 fans were naturally upset since Bungie had to create a six-month-long season that felt like a chore to play. However, we did get the 30th Anniversary bundle which brought some life into the looter-shooter.

Destiny 2 The Final Shape - Teaser

If you haven't seen the Destiny 2 The Final Shape teaser, it has some major implications, especially if you're a franchise veteran.

It includes the return of Cayde-6, the former Hunter leader of the Vanguard and one of the most beloved characters in the franchise, which was killed during 2018's expansion, Forsaken.

Take a look at it down below.

The teaser promises more information regarding The Final Shape in an upcoming Destiny 2 showcase scheduled for August.

Destiny 2 The Final Shape - Story

If you've been keeping up with the Destiny 2 lore, you know The Final Shape is building up to an impending bombastic climax.

Guardians have made impossible alliances with the likes of Cabal and Eliksni. Crow, formerly known as Uldren Sov (Cayde's murderer), is now a Guardian trusted by the Vanguard.

With all joining forces to take down the Witness, who has captured the Traveler, there's much excitement for what the finale holds. Still, we don't know much about the story, with more tidbits coming during Season of the Deep and subsequent seasons.

So that's everything you need to know about The Final Shape thus far. We will be continuously updating the article, so be sure to keep it bookmarked!
