Destiny 2’s The Final Shape expansion was announced in August when it was given a February 27, 2024 release date.
While a launch window wasn’t confirmed, Bloomberg’s sources claim that the sci-fi PvP extraction shooter has been delayed to 2025, suggesting it was previously targeting a 2024 release.
The report coincides with the news that Bungie has become the latest PlayStation studio to be hit with layoffs.
Sony acquired Bungie last year in a $3.6 billion deal that CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said would “be a catalyst to enhance our live game services capabilities” and represent “a major step forward in becoming more multiplatform”.
Marathon general manager Scott Taylor said when the game was announced: “There’s still a lot of work to do before launch or even before we’re ready to talk about the game in more detail. The team is hard at work, and we’ve got a great base to start from but there is still so much more to do, including continuing to grow our team.”
He added: “I know that fans are interested in learning more about Marathon. Believe me we can’t wait to show you more. And while I can’t give a timeline on when that information will be coming what I can say is this: The next time you hear from us about Marathon, we’ll be able to show you the gameplay and will be much closer to launch.”
