The recent news of a crossover between Destiny 2 and Ghostbusters came as a surprise to many players. On the announcement thread on Destiny’s official subreddit, Reddit user PickleFriedCheese replied; “I don’t know how I feel about this. It’s cool stuff, and I guess we have non-branded content in the game that already looks similar to this but…this is starting to edge the line of ridiculous collabs for me like Fortnite does. I’m worried this starting to be the tipping point.”

The collaboration seems to be solely for the purpose of promoting the upcoming Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire movie, which is set to release on March 22, 2024 – just three days after the crossover.

Destiny 2 has collaborated with other major video game franchises in the past. However, for the first time, the game will now feature items based on a movie franchise. This collaboration could open doors for other major collaborations with blockbuster movie franchises in the future.

In other news, it has been reported that Destiny 2’s upcoming 2-month update, named Into The Light, will include some of the highly anticipated weapons from Season of the Forge (Black Armory). Additionally, there are rumors that this free update will bring back The Whisper mission.

Destiny 2 The Final Shape is set to release on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.
