Bungie announced during the Destiny 2: The Final Shape showcase that the game will be moving away from its seasonal model after the expansion. Instead, Destiny 2 will adopt a new episodic model called Episodes.
Episodes will be longer and more substantial than seasons. They will feature new story content, activities, and challenges. Episodes will also be released less frequently than seasons, giving Bungie more time to develop each one.
The first Episode is scheduled to be released in March 2024, shortly after the launch of The Final Shape. It will be called Echoes of the Past, and it will focus on the history of the Destiny universe.
Bungie says that the move to Episodes will allow them to create more ambitious content for Destiny 2. They also say that it will give them more flexibility in terms of how they release content.
It is still too early to say exactly what the Episodes will entail, but Bungie has said that they will be “more innovative and cinematic” than the current seasons. They have also said that they will be “more focused on story and character development.”
The move to Episodes is a significant change for Destiny 2, but it is one that Bungie believes is necessary to keep the game fresh and exciting. It will be interesting to see how the Episodes are received by fans when they are released next year.
