This was just one thing among a slate of new announcements for Destiny 2, though. The dev update post revealed that the Vault of Glass Raid will also be returning to the game next year in 2021, as will two new Strikes in the forthcoming Season 3, DDOS protection for all console players in the same season, and more.

Today actually marks the day that Destiny 2 gets its big next-gen upgrade. At the time of writing, the update hasn't gone live just yet, but Bungie previously revealed that 4K/60FPS functionality would be made available for PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S players today on December 8.

On top of all these additions coming to Destiny 2 next year, the Witch Queen expansion has already been dated for 2021. Earlier this year, alongside the reveal of Beyond Light, Bungie announced that three expansions would be coming to Destiny 2 over the next three years: Beyond Light, The Witch Queen, and Lightfall. However, Bungie game director Luke Smith stated that he doubted any of the expansions would ever be as big as 2018's Forsaken.
