Following the recent leak of the launch date of Destiny 2‘s next expansion, a new listing on Blizzard’s Battle.net shop confirmed two more major pieces of information about the shooter’s upcoming seasons.
As seen in the image below, it appears that season five of Destiny 2, known as Season of the Forge, will indeed launch on December 4th and end on March 4th. While the season’s start date had already been leaked in an image, the end date on the listing suggests that the following season, which will contain the DLC Joker’s Wild, should arrive shortly after March 4th.
The listing also revealed that season seven will be called Season of the Shadow and will arrive in summer 2019. While Bungie’s latest blog post confirmed Penumbra‘s season would be coming this summer, its name had been blacked out, leaving players to wonder what would be in store for them. While the use of “shadow” doesn’t exactly reveal anything, it’s likely Guardians will have to tango with something sinister and will perhaps learn more about the Darkness.
Players will be able to get access to Black Armory, Joker’s Wild, and Penumbra through the previously announced Destiny 2: Forsaken season pass. In addition to the DLC, new content will be added during each of the pass’ three seasons, with Season of the Forge kicking it all off on November 27th. On that day, Bungie will have more information about what to expect, including a full gameplay calendar that will map out the remainder of 2018’s content.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
