“This week at Bungie, we’re on final countdown for launch.
It’s been a long summer of reveals, travels, interviews, and updates. Now we find ourselves in that old familiar clearing at the end of the path. This is the final weekly update that we’ll have before we blast off on another adventure.
Our new launch trailer is making the rounds. Here it is if you haven’t had a chance to watch yet.

Shadowkeep Preview & First Mission Gameplay
⚠️ Warning: Very minor spoilers ahead, largely gameplay centric features in the first video. Deeper dive in the second with actual first mission content. Definitely skip any upcoming videos if you want to go in entirely blind. ⚠️
“Shadowkeep presents a new direction for Destiny 2. One that doubles down on storytelling, RPG mechanics, and retools the sandbox. Here's our first impressions.”
Next up: “A taste of the opening story mission for Destiny 2 Shadowkeep that shows just enough without giving away the conclusion.”
I’ll post the other videos from #FireteamChat / IGN as they’re released.
Shadowkeep • Launch Trailer
Trailer is Live! Live the hype. Breathe it in.
“You know that thing that goes bump in the night?
Become that thing. bung.ie/Shadowkeep

Return to the Moon. Journey deep into a mysterious Hive Keep. Work with Eris to slay the Nightmares before they cast humanity into an age of darkness for good.

This Week At Bungie - 9.19.19
“This week at Bungie, we went on the record about our plans for the third year of Destiny 2.
It takes a big team of talented people to make a game that truly feels alive. You can see a bunch of those team members, either hard at work or talking about our goals, in the newest Bungie ViDoc. If you missed this invitation into our studio, give it a watch now. Or give it a watch again.
