Destiny 2 Lightfall Raid release date
The Destiny 2 Lightfall Raid release date is set for March 10, 2023, according to a blog post from Bungie.
Bungie typically releases the expansion Raids on, or just before, the second weekend following the release date of the expansion. For example, Destiny 2’s last expansion, The Witch Queen, launched on February 22, 2022, and the Raid launched on March 5, 2022. This gave players just over a week to level up and prepare for the Raid. So, it isn’t too surprising to see this date.
While nothing has been officially stated, the Raid description on the Bungie website alludes to a “haunting presence”, which some fans believe is a callback to Season of the Haunted. This Season heavily involved Calus and Nezarec, so it’s possible that the Destiny 2 Lightfall Raid could relate to either of these characters or possibly a new Disciple of The Witness.
