During Tuesday’s showcase, Bungie also announced that Destiny 2 is now available on the Epic Games Store. Until August 30, players can download the game’s 30th Anniversary Pack (normally $24.99 / £21.99) free from Epic’s marketplace.
Bungie also announced that all of Destiny 2’s expansions (Shadowkeep, Beyond Light, and The Witch Queen) are now free to play for the next week on all platforms. And it said it is not planning to sunset any more expansions.
In addition to its ongoing work on Destiny 2, Bungie has announced plans to bring at least one new IP to market before 2025.
The studio is reportedly working on a new Destiny game for mobile in partnership with Chinese tech and gaming giant NetEase, which invested $100 million to become a minority shareholder in the Bellevue, Washington-based studio in 2018.
