There's good news for the Guardians out there: Destiny 2 Crossplay will be arriving in 2021! That's not all that's coming, though — Transmog, two new Strikes, and so much more is on deck for 2021!
Destiny 2 has been having a pretty stellar year. The next-gen version has launched, Update 3.0 has brought a bunch of cool changes to Beyond Light, and Bungie has recently made the happy announcement that the Stadia version will be free-to-play going forward — no Stadia Pro required. Now, a new blog post has revealed what's in store for 2021, and things are about to get even better.

What's Coming in Destiny 2 Year 4 in 2021?
The most notable new feature is Destiny 2 Crossplay — this feature will be arriving sometime next year. There have been no major details about how it will work other than a brief announcement that it's on the way. DDOS protection will also be extended to all Destiny 2 console players.
Fans of the game's cosmetics will be happy to hear that a Transmog system is also in the works (as seen in our header image). Transmog (or "Transmogrification") is a system that allows you to customize the appearance of your character regardless of what stats-based equipment they're wearing. Based on the screenshots in today's news post, it looks like people will be able to choose a cosmetic item and a shader for the main armor slots, although it should be noted that this system is a work in progress.
Lest we forget, there's more to the game than cosmetics and Crossplay — The Vault of Glass Raid will be making a return, and two strikes (Fallen S.A.B.E.R. and Devil's Lair) are launching with Season 13. The Legendary and Master Lost Sector rotation will be also be expanded to include the Lost Sectors on the Moon, giving players three new pieces of Exotic armor to hunt down.
When is the Destiny 2 Crossplay Release Date?
Unfortunately, Bungie declined to specify a Destiny 2 Crossplay release date. We do know that it's coming sometime in 2021; it could arrive as early as Season 13, but it might take even longer than that.
For now, there is still a boatload of content for players to enjoy in this game! You can play Destiny 2 for free on PC and consoles via its official website.
