In the heartfelt video, Blackburn acknowledges the disappointment caused by the previous communication and assures players that the team is dedicated to delivering high-quality content.
He introduces upcoming developments, including a free Eververse armor set in Season 22 and a new PvP map pack for Crucible set to launch in 2024. Blackburn’s personal touch resonates with players, providing a more intimate connection between the development team and the Destiny 2 community.
Looking Ahead: Teasers for "The Final Shape" Expansion and PvP Improvements
Looking forward to the Destiny 2 Showcase on August 22, Blackburn hints at the focus of the upcoming expansion, “The Final Shape,” which aims to engage casual fans with captivating ideas.

Revamping Crucible: A Burst of Energy with a Free Map Pack
In response to worries that Destiny’s PvP development resources had shifted, Blackburn clarifies that this is not the case. To breathe new life into the Crucible experience, the team will release a comprehensive map pack in 2024,
packed with innovative ideas and a burst of excitement. This bold move aims to invigorate the gameplay and offers a refreshing change from the status quo. Notably, this map pack will be free, signaling a shift away from recent microtransaction controversies.
A Gesture of Goodwill: Bridging the Gap with a Free Eververse Armor Set
One key concern has been the availability of new armor sets through in-game achievements rather than the Eververse shop. Blackburn explains that the team’s focus on top-tier activities and seasonal-themed looks contributed to this shift.
To make amends for the miscommunication, Season 22 will feature a free Eververse armor set, bridging the gap between players’ desires and the game’s offerings.
