Bungie released their latest Dev Update this Tuesday 8th December confirming that cross platform play will be possible for Destiny 2 sometime in 2021. The update also touches on concerns regarding the power ecosystem and the plans to grow it, making previous one-time available weapons still earnable in-game.
Cross-play comes in Year 4 of Destiny 2, but with no specific window for its release, we can expect it dropping in the summer, or even winter of 2021.
Its integration has been asked for long enough by the fans, and will hopefully cover a bigger pool for the less-popular game modes, while naturally creating the biggest matchmaking player pool the game has seen since release, with Guardians from Stadia, PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
The studio had been working for a release this year, but with the circumstances 2020 has left us standing in, progress has been made to some extent by adding cross-platform saving and cross-gen gameplay.
The announcement also brought forward more things to expect next year, as developers and directors alike will take a little Christmas break, leaving us in a Holiday cliffhanger:
Transmog will be coming with Season 14.
DDOS protection for Destiny 2 players on all consoles will be coming in Season 13.
The Vault of Glass raid returns.
Fallen S.A.B.E.R. and Devil’s Lair are coming to Destiny 2 in Season 13.
Legendary and Master Lost Sector rotation will be expanded to include the Lost Sectors on the Moon in Season 13
There will be three new pieces of Exotic armor to chase.
We expect to see more updates from Bungie once New Year’s behind us and 2021, along with Year 4’s Season 13, starts for Destiny 2 and Guardians alike.
