TrueTrophies viewed the listing and has all the details. The release date is going to be February 22, 2022, or 2/22/22, according to the leak. The date shown on the listing is actually February 23, which some remarked was odd because that's a Wednesday when Destiny 2 updates normally drop on Tuesdays. But this is could be due to the fact that it's an Australian listing.

The listing also reveals Witch Queen's setting--Savathûn's Throne World. The page also mentions how the expansion will take players into "Savathûn'sThrone World to uncover the mystery of how she and her Lucent Hive stole the Light."

A new weapon type, the Glaive, is also coming to Destiny 2 in Witch Queen, apparently. This weapon is capable of delivering "powerful melee combos, projectile attacks, and a deployable energy shield." A new weapon crafting system is coming, too, according to the leak. As for the pre-order bonuses, these apparently include the Throne World Exotic Ghost Shell, Enigma Exotic emote, and a new emblem. The leak is based on the Witch Queen's Deluxe Edition, so keep that in mind.

Destiny 2's Witch Queen showcase is slated to begin at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET today, August 24, so hopefully everything becomes clear sooner rather than later.

In other news, Destiny 2's Season of the Lost will begin at 10 AM PT on August 24, after The Witch Queen showcase concludes.

Destiny 2 The Witch Queen Will be Released in February 2022 - IGN

IGN 24 August, 2021 - 09:08am

The release date was confirmed during the Destiny 2 Showcase which officially revealed The Witch Queen expansion. IGN will have a rundown of the biggest Witch Queen reveals so check back.

Original Story: Destiny 2's next large-scale expansion, The Witch Queen, is seemingly set to launch in February 2022, according to the latest supposed leak surrounding the game.

The expansion is set to be formally revealed by Bungie in a live stream later today (August 24) at 9am Pacific / 12pm Eastern / 5pm UK (that's 2am AEST on August 25). However, as spotted by True Trophies, an alleged leak from the PlayStation Australia store listing for the title has let slip a few of the details surrounding the upcoming content. Fans hoping to wait until Bungie's official reveal to read details about the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion will want to look away now.

In addition to the Glaive, the store page also seemingly sheds further light on a new destination for the game. In what is being described as a "definitive Destiny campaign", players will embark on a new adventure to uncover the Witch Queen Savathun's Throne World and "the mystery of how she and her Lucent Hive stole the Light".

Bungie teased the Witch Queen's reveal in a short clip on Twitter recently where the Destiny 2 account went on to say, "We have limited details on this embodiment of the Witch Queen Savathûn, but her stature suggests a height of 21 feet."

For more official details surrounding what lies ahead for Destiny 2, make sure to check out Bungie's showcase event. Alternatively, for the latest from the game, you can check out our Destiny 2 dedicated page which is full of trailers, news, and clips from Bungie's online first-person shooter.

Destiny 2's Queen Savathun is Even Taller than RE8's Lady Dimitrescu

Inverse 24 August, 2021 - 08:51am

First, let us remind ourselves of the sheer size of Lady Dimitrescu, the vampire woman who tries to eat Ethan in the early stages of RE8. According to officially released info from Capcom, Lady Dimitrescu is 9'6″ tall and has 17.3-inch feet. Our extrapolation of these figures also determined that Dimitrescu would crush your rib cage if she were to ever stand on your chest.

Now we turn to Savathun, the Witch Queen of the Hive. In Destiny 2, Hive gods are typically massive creatures many times larger than the human Guardians that assail them, but Bungie has never actually released hard numbers for any of them. Xol could wrap himself around a Martian industrial complex, but how much did he weigh? Enough to crush a Guardian, but we’re forever guessing at what the number might be in kilograms (or tons).

That changed with Savathun. Bungie released her official height yesterday of 21 feet, more than twice as lage as Lady Dimitrescu. Is this the first salvo of a new competition between triple-A game developers to keep creating ever-larger female villains? Could be. If so, Bungie now holds the crown for the tallest female baddie in video games. Your move, Capcom.

Savathun will be making her big debut in The Witch Queen, appearing in the flesh after being only mentioned for years. We got to see Savathun's backside in yesterday's teaser trailer, but we got to see the rest of her terrifying form in today's leak on the Australian PlayStation Store. Don't go if you want to be surprised during the Destiny 2 Showcase, which starts up at noon EST.
