After the separation of Bungie and Activision, the creators of Destiny chose to present a new era for their last game, Destiny 2. Their original plans were truncated after this division, from which they managed to keep the license to continue exploiting it in the future. We know that Destiny 2 will become free-2-play in the future, coinciding with the arrival of a great expansion, Shadowkeep After confirming the delay, which takes this conversion to free-to-play via Destiny 2: New Light, and the launch of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep as of October 1, now discover that the expansion would require 165GB of hard disk space.
Everything comes from an image that would have leaked on reddit where we can find information about this aspect of the great expansion of Destiny 2 From the thread, it is stated that this image refers only to the expansion Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, which would require 165GB of hard disk space. It is also true that immediately after, they state that it is something that can change.
Destiny 2 New Light and Shadowkeep have been delayed
Now, around this information, it seems to have been extracted from an email, because this data is not found on the Destiny 2 website. Some suggest that this size does not refer exclusively to the expansion, but to the whole set that also adds the size of the base game. That is 165Gb could be the size required to have both Destiny 2 and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep. And it is that in the Xbox Store we can see that only the Shadowkeep expansion would require 88.84Gb, to which the size of Destiny 2, which is around 88.82Gb. If it were a direct sum this would mean more than 177Gb, but it is not usually that simple.
And throughout the discussion of the thread started with this image that states that Destiny 2: Shadowkeep would require 165Gb of space on the hard disk, there are different versions and sizes extracted from both Playstation 4 and Xbox One. In any case, what it seems is that it will not be an expansion that occupies little, since we talk about a volume that will double The game requirement. Right now, given that Destiny 2 will change on October 1 when it reaches its new free-to-play era, it is possible that what reflects the expansion in the different stores is the most expansion game set, even that this data is not yet available and those mythical 200Kb that are usually exposed or added as the key that is being added to the base game volume will activate the download when available.
