The Final Shape promises to be the epic conclusion of the Light and Darkness saga in D2, with Bungie announcing an upcoming Destiny 2 Showcase to reveal key information ahead of the highly anticipated expansion.
Bungie live streams are usually jam-packed with information and hype trailers. Considering what we've seen so far in regards to The Final Shape, such as the return of beloved character Cayde-6, this Destiny 2 Showcase probably won't be an exception.
Without further ado, this is everything you can expect from the Destiny 2 The Final Shape Showcase.

What to expect from the Destiny 2 The Final Shape Showcase
Destiny 2 players have not always seen eye-to-eye with Bungie regarding some decisions the developers have made in recent years.
In fact, Lightfall received a lukewarm reaction from the community after massive anticipation that promised us a first epic confrontation against The Witness to set up things for The Final Shape. That didn't happen.
Bungie needs to come out swinging with the upcoming Destiny 2 Showcase, revealing more information about the nature of The Witness, their relationship with The Traveler, and maybe give fans a hint as to how Cayde-6 made a miraculous return.
Another key point of interest for fans is what's next after The Final Shape. The DLC is seen as the culmination of everything Bungie's been building up for the past nine years, and many fans are wondering if this will be the definitive end to Destiny 2 as the devs move on to other projects, such as Marathon.
The answer is no, of course not! Bungie won't let Destiny 2 die anytime soon, especially after signing that lucrative deal with Sony. Still, it'll be interesting to see if they mention their plans moving forward.
2024 will mark the 10th anniversary of the Destiny IP, with the original game released on September 2014. A potential announcement like the Bungie 30th Anniversary expansion is possible, although don't be surprised if they keep that under wraps for the foreseeable future.
Finally, we believe Bungie will absolutely acknowledge the passing of Lance Reddick, the iconic Hollywood actor that was the voice of Commander Zavala since 2014.
Reddick left a massive void in the hearts of everyone involved with Destiny 2 just based on his sheer passion for the role, continuously engaging with the community and playing the game in his spare time.
