Destiny 2 Season 19 Release Date: With the end of Season of Plunder rapidly approaching, players of Destiny 2 are looking forward to Season 19, which will serve as a bridge between the current year’s content and the Lightfall expansion set to release the following year. Season 19 will only be available for three months, giving it less time to tell its tale and implement some improvements to the Destiny 2 environment than Season of the Risen did during its six-month run. While Bungie has been mum on the plot details of the upcoming season, it has revealed details of a number of technological updates coming in the next three months.
Dates for the beginning and end of Season 19
As with past seasons, Season 19 will begin on December 6 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET with the weekly reset the following day. After then, only three months stand between you and the start of Lightfall and Season 20 on February 28, 2023.
Facts of the Tale
Just like in previous years, Bungie is being extremely secretive about Season 19’s plot. While we don’t know much about the upcoming season’s central plot points or characters just yet, we do know that the events unfolding over the next three months will set the stage for the Lightfall expansion and the first season of content inside.
What we do know is that next year we will be fighting against former Cabal Emperor Calus, who has now become a student of the Witness and our number one opponent, and his army, the Shadow Legion. There is a chance that the following few months may set the stage for the discovery of Neomuna, the neon metropolis concealed from the struggle between the Light and the Darkness where Lightfall now takes place when it falls under attack.
An occurrence that occurs only once a year
Seasonal events have served as the focal point of each of this year’s four Destiny 2 seasons, and Season 19 will continue that trend with the return of the holiday-themed Dawning. This celebratory event is basically Destiny’s version of Christmas, and it’s frequently viewed as a welcome diversion from the game’s more serious aspects and an opportunity to show off one’s jovial muscles and engage in some good-natured ribbing. You can expect the Dawning to feature its own rewards system full of special cosmetics, weaponry, and emotes, much like the ones for Festival of the Lost and Solstice.
Exciting New Dungeon Adventure!
The specifics of seasonal events like Ketchcrash and Nightmare Containment are being kept secret, but one thing you can count on is a brand-new dungeon to explore. This new high-level activity, which is essentially a mini-raid, will begin on the first Friday of Season 19 on December 9 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET. Once again, Bungie is remaining mum on the specifics of the first new dungeon since the Duality event in May.
All Guardian subclasses are undergoing a complete revision.
Season 19 will feature a tiny taste of the upcoming changes Bungie is promising for all four subclasses in preparation for the launch of the Strand set of powers. These revisions will be more subtle than those made to other subclasses, but they will still have a discernible impact on the functionality of a number of Guardian abilities.
It would appear that Warlocks and Titans would gain the most from these upcoming modifications, but Bungie’s overarching direction will give each subclass a unique flavor. Stasis will be on par with the original Destiny aspects, while Solar classes will remain much the same while exercising their Radiant buff muscles, Void warriors will be masters of inflicting debuffs, Arc players will be nimble damage dealers, and so on.
Adjustments are being made to the Crucible and to player-versus-player combat.
Bungie has a number of plans in the works that will significantly alter Destiny 2’s competitive player-against-player gameplay when Season 19 rolls around. In summary, the pursuit of glory will soon include a new “Glorious” Crucible seal. Some of the less popular game modes are being added to weekly rotations, and the Quickplay playlist is being simplified by combining the Control and Clash game modes into a single entry. On the vendor floor of the Tower, you may find Lord Shaxx offering engram focusing, and Bungie will soon begin testing out a variety of matchmaking settings that take into account player skill, server latency, and team size in all game modes.

There will be a change to the frequency of Iron Banner’s twice-yearly activation. Guardians in Fortress will not only have to contend with human opponents but also with Empress Caiatl, who allegedly has a hand in the tournament. On January 3, a new game mode called Iron Banner will be released. Lord Saladin will be providing the much-requested armor sets from the Taken King era, giving players yet another incentive to leap into the revitalized Iron Banner.
The divine is getting watered down.
Destiny 2’s Divinity, one of the game’s more divisive Exotic weapons, will be nerfed in Season 19 so that fireteams can focus on using a wider variety of weapons. Cozmo, the community manager, has addressed the planned nerf to the trace rifle, stating that the weakened debuff applied by the Divinity has been in the works for a long time and will be reduced from 30% to 15%.
Season 19 marks the end of years of juggling competing priorities in order to get destination supplies. To streamline the Destiny 2 economy, Master Rahool no longer accepts Dusklight Shards, Microphasic Datalattice, Helium Filaments, Baryon Boughs, Spinmetal Leaves, or Glacial Starwort in exchange for Glimmer. Even though most players stockpile and trade destination materials for quick in-game cash, you can earn significantly more Glimmer by participating in Public Events.
In Season 19, the base payout for Public Events (without any Ghost modifications or seasonal bonuses) will be between 3,300 and 4,645 Glimmer, while the prize for Heroic Public Events will increase to between 10,000 and 12,000.
Improvements to the Art of Arms
Since its introduction in The Witch Queen, Bungie has been gradually expanding weapon building and refining the mechanics behind creating appealing instruments of death. Already available for manufacturing are weapons from the Dares of Eternity, and in Season 19 you’ll be able to get your hands on weaponry from the Beyond Light raid’s Deep Stone Crypt. Bungie has stated that after fighting Taniks, the raid will have a chance to drop Deepsight weapons and that players will be able to buy one per week from the final chest.
Bungle also mentioned that the chances of getting several Deepsight drops in a single run are considerably improved when Deep Stone Crypt is the featured raid of the week and encounter drops are uncapped.
What has been taken out of Destiny 2 and why?
The Forsaken campaign, the Tangled Shore, and its associated activities were taken out of the game and stored in the Destiny Content Vault when The Witch Queen was released in February 2022. The Dreaming City and its endgame content were left in the game.
When the Light falls on Destiny 2, does that mean the game is over?
Destiny 2’s “Final Form” Won’t Be the End, Developers Are Planning for the Next Decade. Lightfall, Bungie’s upcoming expansion, is scheduled for release in February 2023, and the studio has already announced its follow-up, The Final Shape.
When will Destiny 2 get its next season?
The release date for Season 19 of Destiny 2 has been set for December 6, 2022. You’ll have until the weekly reset on Sunday at 6 p.m. BST (11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET) to prepare by leveling up your Season Pass and Seasonal Artifact. On February 28, 2023, the day Lightfall arrives, Season 19 will come to a close (alongside Season 20).
Is it true that Shadowkeep is going to be destroyed?
Xbox Game Pass on console and cloud stopped supporting Destiny 2 and its expansions (Forsaken, Shadowkeep, and Beyond Light) on December 8, 2021. Destiny 2 and its add-ons (Forsaken Pack, Shadowkeep, and Beyond Light) will be removed from Xbox Game Pass on PC on April 11, 2022.
When will Destiny 2 finally be completed?
Destiny 2’s upcoming eighth expansion, and the franchise’s twelfth overall, is currently titled The Final Shape. According to the synopsis, everything will culminate in The Final Shape, the final DLC for The Light and Darkness Saga. The name could change in the future.
