Destiny 2's Prestige Leviathan Raid Delayed; New PvP Map Announced

Tomorrow is a good day for Destiny 2 PvP-ers, but not so much Destiny 2 raid-ers.

October 9, 2017

It’s Destiny 2 season, which is to say it seems like every other day there is a new Destiny 2 announcement. And here we are: more announcements.

First up, let’s talk that fancy prestige Leviathan Raid. If you’re one of the people eagerly awaiting to slam your head against it, well you will have to wait a little bit longer.

Community Manager Cozmo is the bearer of the bad news over on the official forums. More specifically, Cozmo revealed the prestige-version of the raid has been delayed due to an exploit that Bungie has encountered with it. How Long? Well, instead of launching on October 10, aka tomorrow, it now won’t arrive until October 18, 10 a.m. PST.


While the prestige raid won’t arrive tomorrow, a new PvP map will. The map, dubbed Distant Shore (which looks like the Shores of Time map from OG Destiny), is timed to start with the game’s very first Iron Banner. However, the map won’t be playable in all playlists until a week later when Iron Banner ends. Iron Banner is poised to run from October 10-17, thus expect to see the new map in the general multiplayer playlists on the 17.

Destiny 2 is available for PS4 and Xbox One. It is scheduled to also arrive on PC later this month on the 24th.
