Sony leak allows Destiny 2 players to access The Final Shape expansion early

Sony leak allows Destiny 2 players to access The Final Shape expansion early

Bungie’s highly anticipated Destiny 2: The Final Shape expansion isn’t due to launch until June 4th, but a number of players have been able to get access to the game this morning. Posters on Reddit and in Discord servers have been sharing images and video of gameplay of The Final Shape, which was apparently accessible through Sony’s PS5 cloud streaming service.

As the entire DLC was playable for at least five hours, Destiny 2 players have been able to share spoilers about upcoming raid gear, seasonal content, The Final Shape campaign and missions, and even cutscenes. Videos have also appeared on YouTube showing an early look at new weapons and gear that will be available next week.

The Final Shape could be Destiny 2’s most important expansion, set to conclude the light and darkness saga of Destiny that has been ongoing for nearly a decade. It will see Destiny 2 players fight The Witness, the main antagonist of Destiny’s light and darkness saga who commands the Black Fleet — an armada of pyramid vessels.

The Final Shape will also include access to a new Prismatic Subclass that merges the powers of the Light and Darkness, allowing players to combine certain class abilities from different damage types. Prismatic looks set to break Destiny 2, in a good way.

Sony and Bungie have now rectified the mistaken early access, but the damage has already been done. It’s a devastating leak for Bungie, just days ahead of the official launch of The Final Shape. Spoilers and gameplay are now appearing on forums, posts on X, Discord servers, Reddit, and elsewhere ahead of The Final Shape launch on Tuesday — making it nearly impossible for fans to avoid spoilers.

We’ve reached out to Bungie to comment on this, and we’ll update you accordingly.
