Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Release Date (Rumoured)
According to the leak, the Destiny 2: The Witch Queen expansion will launch on February 22, 2022.
Whilst this hasn’t been officially announced, the leak seems pretty rock solid – coming from a Playstation storefront and not some random Australian on a Sunday bender.
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Pre-order Leaks
A Destiny 2: The Witch Queen pre-order page went live on Australia’s PlayStation storefront earlier today, quickly being removed after the internet started to break. The pre-order page revealed a tonne of information regarding the game’s locations and several story spoilers – so discontinue reading if you want to wait for the official reveal.
According to the leak, The Witch Queen expansion looks set to take players deep into the heart of Savathûn’s Throne World to try and solve the mystery of how she stole the light.
The leak goes on to say that, players will learn the “secrets to crafting new weapons, the new glaive and survive the truth with her web of lies.”
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen Locations
As you’d expect, the latest expansion for Destiny 2 will come with a new location and new gameplay features – some of which were leaked in the recent pre-order page slip. Players will be able to enjoy Savathûn’s Throne World in the new expansion – releasing at the same time as the DLC. The world will feature a delicate balance of power between the Queen’s palace and the swamp surrounding it.

A new short trailer for the expansion is driving even more anticipation, showcasing the Queen over what can only be displayed as a flooded wasteland.
Here’s the Destiny 2: The Witch Queen trailer:
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen – Weapons Crafting System
A new weapon crafting system will be deployed into the latest expansion, allowing players to create custom weaponry with cool mods, shaders, and stat combinations. In the past, Destiny 2 has allowed players to craft weapons through various modes like Menagerie. That being said, the functionality of this feature was fairly limited, with players only being able to increase the chances of rolling certain weapons and perk types. However, that will all change thanks to the arrival of an exciting new weapon crafting system.
