Destiny 2 The Witch Queen - Release delayed to 2022

A Bungie developer known as Spawnling on Reddit described everything that left Destiny 2 when Witch Queen launched next February. The Destiny Content Vault was introduced at the start of the previous expansion, Beyond Light, as a way to extract in-game content with the goal of reducing the game’s file size and reducing development time. According to Spawnling, all of Beyond Light’s seasonal content will disappear, including the various wings of the HELM but not the Prismatic Recaster or the Umbral Encoder. Presage and Harbinger will be vaulted with the Tangled Shore and Forsaken campaign.


By Remedy

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Splatoon 2 were also in the top ten, so there could be some recency bias in play here. Check here to see the full list.
