Microsoft and Bungie have announced that Destiny 2 and all of its DLC will be removed from Xbox Game Pass in the coming weeks, and that the next expansion must be purchased for Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

And this means that if you haven’t played the Destiny 2 Beyond Light campaign yet, you’ll need to do so before December 8, 2021.

That’s when Bungie will be removing the expansion, in addition to the Forsaken and Shadowkeep DLCs.

The good news is that while all of this content is being removed on Xbox One and Xbox Series X for Game Pass, new content is on the way.

But as mentioned above, Bungie has warned that The Witch Queen expansion won’t be available to play when it arrives in February 2022.

A new post explaining Bungie’s changes reads: “On December 8, Destiny 2 and its expansions (Forsaken, Shadowkeep, and Beyond Light) will leave Xbox Game Pass on console and cloud. Destiny 2 and current expansions will remain on Xbox Game Pass for pc.

“Once Destiny 2 exits Xbox Game Pass, players who do not have any of the expansions on the Xbox platform will lose access to: campaign missions, expansion-specific activities: Raids, Dungeons, Hunts, Exo Challenges, Nightfall Strikes, and access to Trials of Osiri, The Stasis subclass, which is specific to Beyond Light, The middle-tree Supers for each subclass, and the 10% discount benefit for Silver purchases and other game add-ons.

“Items, such as Exotics, that have already been purchased will continue to be available to players who have earned them. Previously purchased season passes will remain active. Players who want to continue playing Destiny 2 on Xbox should look for Destiny 2 expansion discounts that will be available soon.

As a reminder, The Witch Queen will not be available on console or PC Xbox Game Pass when it launches on February 22, 2022.

As posted above, Xbox Game Pass on PC will retain Beyond Light and the other DLC packs, but will not receive The Witch Queen.

Bungie also confirmed that on February 22, the Forsaken campaign and the Tangled Shore destination will enter the DCV, although The Dreaming City destination will remain available.

Other things that get vaulted are the Presage and Harbinger Exotic missions and this happens across all platforms.

The good news is that the Forsaken campaign will be available for free to all players from December 7, 2021 until the DCV in February 2022.

So even if you’re one of those Xbox Game Pass subscribers who lose this piece of content, you’ll still have access to it until next year.

But that will be of little consolation to those who have played Forsaken and enjoyed Beyond Light and all the perks that come with it.
