While excitement is building for next year's Destiny 2: The Witch Queen expansion, dungeons are quickly becoming an issue in the community. This is because the Destiny 2 dungeons will not be available to those who purchase the $39.99 Standard Edition. Instead, players have to buy the Deluxe Edition for $79.99 or a "separate access path" that will be added in the future. This was spotted by an eagle-eyed Redditor on the Destiny 2 subreddit and confirmed by Cozmo23, a Bungie Community Manager in this statement:
Hey everyone. We’ve seen some debate around the new dungeon content and wanted to clarify how it will be delivered next year.
If you get the Digital Deluxe Edition of The Witch Queen you will receive the expansion, all four Seasons for the next year, and the two Dungeons. If you get the Standard Edition, you can still upgrade to the Deluxe Edition to get the dungeons later. We will also be offering a separate way for you to purchase the Dungeons in the future, but they will not be included in the Season passes.
We will share more info on this closer to when this content is set to go live.
This isn't a great look, especially when this is the same company that took away content that players had already paid for. The Witch Queen expansion will be arriving next year on February 22, 2022, so by that time, we should have more information on what the "separate access path" is supposed to mean. It should be included with the Season Pass, but it isn't and players aren't happy, with the statement already receiving almost 2000 downvotes in the 19 hours since its posting.
