Destiny 2: The Final Shape leaked on PS5, can you still play it?

Destiny 2: The Final Shape leaked early through PS5 cloud streaming, and some players immediately started digging through the content.

Destiny 2 still boasts tens of thousands of players daily since its release. Still, the game received a solid boost in player count as The Final Shape DLC draws closer. Bungie delayed the release of the highly-anticipated story expansion multiple times. Paired with subpar updates like the controversial Destiny 2 Starter Pack, fans only got more frustrated with each delay.

Fortunately for them, The Final Shape arrives the same year Destiny celebrates its 10th anniversary. The long-delayed expansion will wrap up the Light and Darkness saga, an arc that players have followed for 10 years. However, Destiny fans unexpectedly got an early look at the upcoming DLC.

PlayStation leaked Destiny 2: The Final Shape through cloud streaming

The Destiny 2 update lets players experience The Final Shape through PS5 cloud streaming.

The DLC remained playable for a significant amount of time before finally becoming inaccessible. As a result, major story details slipped out. Destiny 2 fans who are desperate to see how the story goes have begun dissecting all the leaked information. Destiny 2: The Final Shape is no longer accessible through PlayStation’s game-streaming service.

Fans had plenty of time to spread leaked images of new weapons, levels, perks, and story details across social media. These images revealed quite a lot about what is essentially the game’s “ending.” Understandably, some fans did not appreciate this being spoiled well before the launch, making social media surrounding the game a minefield of spoilers.

Some fans even claimed Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC also leaked, but these claims are unsubstantiated as of this writing. Notably, the leak only happened on PlayStation systems.

Destiny 2’s PC and Xbox versions did not see The Final Shape leaked, leading many to fault Sony for the mistake. After all, Sony’s track record with online security hasn’t been the best since the infamous 2014 hacking incident. However, neither Sony nor Bungie have released official statements regarding the incident yet. Fortunately for Destiny fans, they won’t have to dodge spoilers for very long.

Destiny 2: The Final Shape will launch on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.
