Destiny 2: Forsaken's raid won't launch until 10 days after the expansion's release


Late Wish

Destinyplayers are used to waiting for raids. Usually, a raid will go live a few days after an expansion launches. For Destiny 2‘s Forsakenadd-on, players will have to wait more than a few days.

Bungie has just confirmed that Forsaken‘s “Last Wish” raid will go live on September 14 — a full 10 days after Forsakenreleases on September 4. Senior designer Joe Blackburn says the delay is because “players [will] need more than just three days to prepare for the incredible challenges ofForsaken‘sraid.”

This gap isn’t completely unprecedented, but it’s also the longest Destinyplayers will be left raid-less. When Destiny 2launched, it took seven days for the “Leviathan” raid to go live. If this is the expansion that actually fixes Destiny 2, most people probably won’t mind waiting a few extra days for a raid.
