Destiny 2 is coming to Xbox Game Pass.

On the official Bungie website, it was announced that Destiny 2 will be making its way to Xbox Game Pass this September. This version of Destiny 2 will be the base game as well as the expansions, Forsaken and Shadowkeep. The upcoming expansion, Beyond Light, will be added to the Xbox Game Pass version of the game as well when it releases in November. Seasonal content, however, will need to be purchased separately. 

Bungie also reminded players that Destiny 2 will be optimized for the Xbox Series X. The game will support 4K resolution, and will run at 60 frames per second. Those who own the Xbox One version of Destiny 2 will be able to upgrade to the Xbox Series X version for free, just as those with the PlayStation 4 version can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version. Those who have the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription will be able to stream Destiny 2 on their Android mobile devices via xCloud. 

Last week it was announced that Destiny 2's latest expansion, Beyond Light, has been delayed until November. The expansion was meant to release in September. Bungie stated that the expansion was delayed to the current pandemic affecting the world. The studio admitted that the past few months have been a challenge, but they will continue to put out the same level of quality that their fans expect despite the virus creating hurdles for them. Since Beyond Light was delayed, Destiny 2's current season, Season of Arrivals, has been expanded into November. The game's Halloween event, Festival of the Lost, will take place in the current season. The Moments of Triumph event has also been extended until November. 

Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Stadia. The game will make its way to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X later this year.
