Bungie had announced Destiny 2 well before the E3 2017 gaming convention but several additional details about the title were confirmed during Sony’s press conference. Bungie confirmed that it was moving up the console release of Destiny 2 by two days. It also detailed the exclusive PS4 content for Destiny 2 and pointed out how long PS4 owners will be able to claim this content for themselves only.
Lake of Shadows is a strike which will be exclusive to PS4 owners. The City Apex ship, Weapon Borealis exotic weapon and PVP map Retribution will also be exclusive to Destiny 2 players on PlayStation 4.
While Bungie has offered exclusive content to PlayStation 4 owners in the past for the original title as well, they were timed releases, which meant that the content would arrive on the Xbox One after a month or so. That’s not going to be the case here.
Bungie has confirmed that all of the exclusive PS4 content for Destiny 2 that it has revealed at E3 2017 is going to be exclusive to Sony’s console at least until the fall next year.
So while it can’t be said right now precisely when this content is going to be released for the Xbox One, it can be said with absolute certainty that it won’t land on Microsoft’s console until 2018 at the very least.
Destiny 2 is due for release on September 6th, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
