Today, Bungie and Xbox announced that they are joining
forces to bring Destiny 2 to Xbox Game Pass this fall.
With an active Xbox Game Pass subscription, players will
have access to the standard edition (seasonal content sold separately) of each
expansion, beginning with Forsaken and Shadowkeep (available September 2020) and
Beyond Light (available beginning on November 10, 2020).
Later this year we will be releasing a version of Destiny 2
that will be optimized for Xbox Series X, including 4K resolution and running
at 60 frames per second. Players who already own Destiny 2 on Xbox One will be
able to transfer their game to Xbox Series X for free via Smart Delivery. In addition, for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, players will be able to stream Destiny 2 on their Android mobile devices via xCloud.
FAQQ: Does this partnership with Xbox mean that Destiny 2
content is launching on Xbox first?
A: All content on Destiny 2 remains available to all
players, on any platform, and is going to be available at the same time – there
are no content exclusives on any platform.
Q: Is seasonal content included as part of Game Pass?
A: No. With an active Xbox Game Pass subscription, players
will have access to the standard edition of the Forsaken and Shadowkeep
expansions beginning in September 2020, and the standard edition of the Beyond
Light expansion beginning on November 10, 2020. Seasonal content is available
for separate purchase.
Q: What happens if I have already pre-ordered Beyond Light on Xbox?
A: Those Xbox Game Pass subscribers who purchase any edition of
Beyond Light will still have access to the expansion and its associated content
if Beyond Light leaves Game Pass or their Game Pass subscription expires.
Q: What will happen
to my expansions when/if Destiny 2 leaves Xbox Game Pass?
A: Players have access
to the Destiny 2 expansions while they have an active Game Pass subscription.
If Destiny 2 expansions leave Game Pass, players will need to purchase the expansions to
continue playing expansion content.
Q: Are the Beyond
Light pre-order bonuses available via Xbox Game Pass?
A: No. In order to get access to pre-order items and digital
bonuses, you must purchase Beyond Light.
Q: What happens to my current Xbox Destiny 2 expansions?
2 and its associated expansions will continue to work as normal outside of Xbox
