Unveiling Destiny 2's Ritual Armor Sets: Hope or Ultimate Disappointment?

Destiny 2 players express their dissatisfaction with Bungie's decision to not introduce fresh Ritual Playlist armor sets with each expansion, causing disappointment among the gaming community

Bungie’s recent announcement regarding the absence of new Ritual Armor sets in each expansion has left many Destiny 2 players feeling dissatisfied. This disappointment was expressed in the recent "State of the Game" article, which also unveiled Destiny 2's future plans.

Earlier in May 2020, Bungie had promised that players would receive a new Ritual Playlist Armor set annually. However, since the launch of Destiny 2 Beyond Light DLC, the community has only received one armor set, and no new sets were introduced in The Witch Queen and Lightfall expansions. As a result, players have repeatedly requested updates from Bungie regarding these missing sets. Unfortunately, the developer has now stated that it will not be releasing new Ritual Armor sets with every expansion in the future. As a consequence, the community has criticized Bungie for failing to fulfill its promise.

In a Reddit post, user LunarKOF raised questions about Bungie's inability to deliver the promised new Ritual Armor sets. Additionally, they noted that Bungie's reasoning for this choice was attributed to the "low adoption rate" of these armor pieces within the community. According to them, this response appeared questionable since the armor offered no significant benefits in terms of stats and design to Destiny 2 players.

Bungie acknowledged that they currently have limited resources to create new armor pieces for each expansion. Additionally, reports suggest that Bungie is working on undisclosed projects alongside Destiny 2 and the revival of their Marathon IP. Consequently, some fans have suggested accepting that Destiny 2 is no longer Bungie's sole focus.

However, Bungie has assured fans that they will deliver an exciting conclusion to the Light vs. Darkness saga through the campaign and raid of Destiny 2 The Final Shape. Following criticism of Lightfall's seasonal storytelling, players had requested a change in Bungie's approach, and it appears that the developer has taken this feedback into account.

Destiny 2 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
