The next Destiny 2 expansion is called The Witch Queen, and as the name implies, players will finally face the eponymous villain, the terrible Savathûn herself. In case you need reminding who she is, she’s the middle sister to Xivu Arath, God of War, and Oryx, the Taken King. They are the chief gods of the Hive species, who originally made a deal with the Worm gods on Fundament.
Hive gods have their own ‘cyst universes’ within the Ascendant Realm, otherwise known as Throne Worlds – a realm in which they have absolute power. That’s where the Guardians are headed to confront The Witch Queen, and she’s got plenty up her sleeve, including Hive Guardians who have the power to wield the Light.
The Witch Queen expansion releases alongside Season 16 and marks the conclusion of Season 15, in which we’ve been working alongside Mara Sov to remove Savathûn’s worm – the source of her power, at her own request. By the time the release date arrives, we’ll know whether Savathûn – the queen of lies, mind you – really intends to renounce her pact with the Worm gods. Here’s everything we know about The Witch Queen expansion in Destiny 2.
