With its November 10th release date, Destiny 2’s new Beyond Light expansion is releasing just in time for the launch of Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles. But those who plan to buy an Xbox Series X, Series S or PlayStation 5 at launch will have to wait about a month before they’ll be able to get the most from their new hardware while playing Beyond Light. Developer Bungie announced today it will release the next-generation optimized version of Destiny 2 on December 8th.
“While things like faster load times and cross-generation play will be available on November 10th, we’re taking some more time on the following enhancements to ensure a smooth experience when playing Destiny 2 on your new devices,” the studio said. Following the update, all three consoles will render the game at 60 frames per second. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will also output Destiny 2 output at 4K — while the less-powerful Xbox Series S will be limited to Full HD.
