Destiny 2 is getting rid of its Forsaken campaign expansion

The Forsaken DLC was added to Destiny 2 three years ago and to this day is still met with the praise of being the game’s best expansion. Now, Bungie reports that it will be another piece of the game locked in the Destiny Content Vault, which was introduced last summer. The developers will now focus on the new launch of The Witch Queen update coming in February of 2022.

The Destiny Content Vault was introduced as a way to cycle through select content in order to allow the development team to focus on different expansions and updates. With its launch, Bungie claims that there is a great deal of technical “breathing room,” allowing more care to be put into additional renovations.

“Beginning on February 22, the Forsaken campaign and the Tangled Shore destination will enter the DCV (Note: The Dreaming City destination will continue to be available), along with Year 4 Seasonal content, including the Presage and Harbinger Exotic missions,” Bungie states in its press release.

Year 4 content including Proving Grounds strike and the Battlegrounds activities will persist into Year 5. In February the Battlegrounds will combine with strikes into a new playlist titled “Vanguard Operations.”

Those that may have missed out on Forsaken are in luck, as the campaign expansion will be available for all players free of charge starting December 7 until February 2022 when it enters the vault. On December 7, the Forsaken Pack will also be available for purchase, including access to the Last Wish raid, Shattered Throne dungeon, and all the Forsaken Exotics.

The new Witch Queen expansion hits Destiny 2 on February 22, 2022.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl gets final release date after arduous development
Key art for Stalker 2.

GSC Game World's highly anticipated S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl will finally come out this year. The shooter is set to launch on September 5 on Xbox Series X/S and PC.

First announced in 2018 and publicly shown off in 2021, this survival horror shooter has been a long time coming. A much-demanded sequel to a PC cult classic, the development of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has been arduous, mainly because of how Russia's invasion of Ukraine impacted the studio. Initially slated for April 2022, the game has been delayed several times. GSC Game World had settled on promising a Q1 2024 release window, but an announcement on Tuesday morning explained that it needed one final delay to get the game over the finish line.

Destiny 2's next expansion, The Final Shape, has been delayed. The DLC will now launch on June 6, 2024. Prior to that date, the shooter will get a new two-month event dubbed Into the Light.

The news of The Final Shape's delay shouldn't come as a surprise. Just this month, developer Bungie was hit by a layoff wave that will reportedly cut around 100 staff members. At the time, Bloomberg reported that The Final Shape would be bumped to June. Bungie has now confirmed that report in a blog post.

Alan Wake 2 studio is rebooting its upcoming multiplayer project
Saga fights off a Taken in Alan Wake 2.

Remedy Entertainment, the studio behind October's critically acclaimed survival horror game Alan Wake 2, revealed that it is reworking what was previously a free-to-play multiplayer game into a premium cooperative title.

While Remedy made a name for itself with trippy, narrative-focused single-player franchises like Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Control, a multiplayer project code-named Vanguard has been in the works at the Finnish studio since at least 2018. In 2021, Remedy announced that it partnered with Tencent to make and distribute the game, which was described as "a free-to-play, co-operative PvE shooter that combines Remedy’s narrative expertise and action gameplay into an immersive multiplayer experience." As recently as a financial report last month, Remedy said that Vanguard was still in the "proof-of-concept stage" and that it was working with Tencent on "defining the next stages of the project."
