The roadmap also broke down what we can expect from Destiny 2 through the summer.
The first Destiny 2 expansion was released previous year and was met with mixed reviews, many of which called it an empty shell. Warmind will be released on May 8th as part of the beginning of Season 3.
Bungie made the reveal in an official Developer Roadmap post, and said the expansion "will send you to new places to meet new heroes and battle new enemies". The developers teased the expansion though by showing what the Warmind looks like with a attractive image.
Our goals for these features are to give you more control over how you configure your loadouts in Destiny 2 and give you more reasons to play the game over time. We also want to bring back those exciting moments when you acquire the flawless weapon. This is a much-needed change and will hopefully bring the community back. Over the last few months, Bungie has been hard at work to improve the game's systems to offer a better experience and quality of life for gamers.
It's worth highlighting that come Season Three, the Crucible maps from Warmind (and Curse of Osiris) will be freely playable in playlists like Quickplay, Competitive, Trials of the Nine, and Iron Banner even if you don't own those expansions.
However, with the arrival of Private Matches, players will need to purchase each Expansion to have exclusive access to play those Crucible maps with other players in a private match.
May 8 will also see the launch of a new update that introduces Seasonal Vendor progression, as well as multi emote support.
How Bungie addresses this with those weapon slot changes, and how those changes impact the speed and fun factor of multiplayer combat, will have a big effect on whether Destiny 2 can reclaim the popularity and longevity of its predecessor.
