Destiny 2 patch notes for The Final Shape's abilities and armor changes are so big they would have been one of the biggest posts in Bungie's 33-year history

Destiny 2 The Final Shape Prismatic subclass guardians running.

Destiny 2's patch notes for The Final Shape's abilities and armor tuning would have been so huge that, at over 9,000 words, it would have been one of the biggest articles Bungie's ever published. Thankfully, that means it's being split up.

Bungie announces in the short tweet thread below that it was preparing an article covering all the ability and armor tuning changes coming up in The Final Shape expansion, which launches next month on June 4. The article would have been so big, at over 9,000 words, that it would have been one of the largest ever published by Bungie, so the developer has split it up.

As a result, the 'Abilities Tuning Preview' article will go live later today on Wednesday, May 22, at 10 am PT/1 pm ET/6 pm BST, while the 'Exotic Armor Tuning Preview' will go live tomorrow on Thursday, May 23, at the same time. 'This Week in Destiny,' the standard Bungie-published article looking at the state of the shooter every week, will go live one hour after the latter article hits the developer's website.

So, what can you expect from both the articles? The abilities-focused article will cover all changes coming to Dark and Light subclasses in The Final Shape, whereas it sounds like the armor-focused article will be focusing on the Exotic brand of gear in Destiny 2 only. Don't expect the latter article to branch out with a full armor overview for The Final Shape, in other words.

"It's going to be a fun week," Bungie adds in the final tweet. A lot of the Twitter responses are really jazzed about the 9,000-word count, but it is worth remembering that the article Bungie is referring to with that word count no longer exists - it's been split up into the two articles we'll be reading both today and tomorrow. Still, those should be two hefty articles by anyone's count.
