Destiny 2: Forsaken Post-Launch Content Roadmap Laid Out Through Summer 2019, Includes Return of Iron Banner and More

Bungie lays out the schedule through Summer 2019.

Destiny 2 players can expect a packed schedule of events after the Forsaken expansion's release next week. The Destiny 2: Forsaken post-release content roadmap contains a multitude of events for players of both the expansion and the vanilla release, including the return of Iron Banner and more.

The roadmap hits the ground running in September with a Raid called Last Wish as well as new Crucible maps, then continues into October with the return of the Festival of the Lost (with a twist). The roadmap maps out content releases all the way through Summer 2019. Here are some notable highlights:

  • September 1: Gambit 24-Hour Free Trial
  • September 4: Destiny 2 Forsaken Release Date
  • September 14: Raid: Last Wish Release Date
  • September 18: Return of Iron Banner and New Crucible Map
  • September 25: New Crucible Mode: Breakthrough

Bungie kindly laid out the entire roadmap for the year ahead in a helpful infographic. You can check it out below.

Bungie has been steadily laying the groundwork for the release of the Forsaken expansion for Destiny 2 over the past month. Yesterday, Bungie released Update 2.0, which includes the ability to pre-load Forsaken.

With Destiny 2 now available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, it seems as if Bungie is going all in on getting fans back onboard for this expansion. As our contributor Doc Burford outlined, it's been a tough year for the shooter that was supposed to dominate 2018. This expansion is a chance to make amends.

When Forsaken launches, it will bring with it a new destination in The Tangled Shore, a new mode that fuses PvE and PvP in Gambit, and a new Raid set in The Dreaming City. That's on top of new weapons and armor, big changes to the way that the weapons and armor work, and new supers. You can read about everything you need to know in our big Destiny 2 guide to everything you need to know about Forsaken. Destiny 2: Forsaken launches September 4.
