Oh poo poo, it's dropping on my birthday. Looks like I took off on the right day.

Pistol exotic seems pretty neat, hope that it signifies there are going to be other cryo weapons in the future. I'd love to see a weapon like the Cryo thrower from Deep Rock or from Duke Nukem (only if we get a "Mighty Boot" finisher).

I think they said outright that the season to follow (15?) will have stasis legendaries.

Next Season (Splicer) will have osmosis providing stasis damage as well. Granted that seems like it will be rather niche.

The stasis sidearm is going to immediately be abused and subsequently nerfed to hell in crucible, above all else this season I am stoked to see this play out.

Judging from the video it seems like it takes like 3-4 shots to freeze a target. Perhaps they can adjust it to be more against players.

Or, just hit it with the nerf bat and make it total garbage either way I can see them doing.

There's at least two seasons after the coming Splicer season before the expansion next year. More if there's another delay, which wouldn't be a huge surprise.

I donít believe either of these correct, we get one more season after Splicer and then itís Witch Queen time. Theyíll just be longer seasons now that Witch Queen is delayed to early 2022.

Season of the Splicer (Season 14) ends mid August. Season 15 is confirmed, announced, and you can pre-order it, and if it follows the same 12 week cycle then it will end sometime in November.

So, that leaves a period of November to Jan/Feb where another 12 week season could fit. Bungie also delayed WQ early enough that they have the time to create a season to fill in that slot.

So, all the stars are in alignment for a S16 before WQ, but we'll see if Bungie does it. So far there is no announcement of anything of that sort.

It would make sense if they did it, but I guess I should clarify that my position is based off of the fact that nowhere in the delay announcement did they mention anything about the seasons changing (or anywhere else so far,) and we saw with Opulence and Arrivals that they have no qualms about making seasons longer to compensate. These seasons are also probably planned out months, maybe a year, in advance, and itíd be difficult to whip one up on the fly to compensate for a delay thatís going to take effect fairly soon.

I also have to wonder what the backlash would be like if they make BL Deluxe users pay for this surprise fifth season.

Right. Bungie just making Season of the 15th longer is probably the most likely outcome. However, unlike Shadowkeep (a few week delay) and Beyond light (about 45 days or so), Bungie already announced the release dates originally, and had to push them back. With WQ, they delayed really really early. Early enough for them to create something to fill the gap. This is what makes a hypothetical season 16 a possibility, albeit a small possibility.

We will see!
