Under the microscope, Bungie is still at heart the same team it has been since its new welcoming to PlayStation Studios. Despite the new home, the developer is still issuing lasting content for Destiny 2. Previously, it was confirmed that ‘The Final Shape’ is the last major add-on for Destiny 2 and will feature Nathion Fillion’s Cayde-6 once more.
Looking elsewhere, the developer also confirmed another IP is on the way – Marathon. Announced as part of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s live-service effort, the new project is a PvP, extraction shooter and is promised to be a multiplatform release. Other reports nod to another title codenamed ‘Gummy Bears’ with a development aesthetic offering an “neon-like appearance.”
This week, the annual Density 2 Showcase took place revealing the next wave of content for the titular live-service game. It goes on to reveal a new February launch date for ‘The Final Shape’ as well. You can watch the new trailer in the video below:
“The Final Shape has been revealed and the Witness’s plans have almost been brought to fruition. This is the hardest challenge you have faced yet, but you won’t be alone. Ikora Rey, Commander Zavala, and even a mysteriously returned Cayde-6 will be at your side, ready to walk a path of remembrance and discovery through The Pale Heart of the Traveler itself,” bungie offers for a synapse of ‘The Final Shape.’
“The main story of The Final Shape will be told throughout the course of its campaign, which you will be able to complete with increased difficulty and rewards in the Legendary campaign. Players will explore the familiar yet unsettling panoramas of The Pale Heart, the first linear destination in Destiny 2.
“When the campaign has been completed, there’s plenty more coming. In the new raid, Guardians will confront the Witness head on and try to break its hold on The Pale Heart. But even that might not be enough… the culmination of the Light and Darkness Saga is upon us, and all Guardians must answer the call if we want to overcome The Final Shape and the Witness once and for all. The time has come, Guardians. Rally the Vanguard, raise your Light, wield your Darkness, and become legend.”
